You know, I think we all missed the obvious. The answer is 42. The answer is always 42. What the hell have we been on about for the last 50 posts when we all knew all along what the answer was?

Always the same time between one overlap and the next overlap but if you're looking for the time taken between some arbitrary time and the next overlap that's something else.

So if you want to know, starting from 3:15, how long before the hands overlap it's not 1:05:27, it's going to be very approximately 2 minutes.

This thread is a thinly-veiled Ask Couch Anything thread.

So Couch, was that you I saw around the Flammables locker at my workplace last night?...with some sort of chocolate bevy in one hand and matches in the other?
