When you buy a clock do you prefer it to have a second hand as well as a first hand and an hour hand?

    I don't buy clocks as I mainly use my phone, but the ones I have are digital.

    I like my clocks to be handsy.   I find digital clocks to be sterile and cold, while a clock with hands just "feels" better.  A clock with hands makes time "flow", whereas on a digital clock it just happens (unexpectedly?).

    You should be old enough to know that time passes no matter what we expect or do.

    If time passes, why have I never seen an obituary for it?

    (Comma after the word “clock”.)

       I prefer that they have a second hand, and on my analog wristwatches, the sane same thing.

      You?

    Yes I need a second hand on my timepieces because I time some things in seconds,  ie many kinds of green tea should only be steeped for about 30 seconds and I microwave my eggs for 40 seconds in cooking oil. (when you do that you gotta bust the yoke first or it could explode)

    The sane thing? As opposed to the insane thing?

    Day hands are all I need...I don't care what time it is. What is today, by the way?

    I like all of the hands to be new, not second-hand.
