A broken clock might be missing the hour, minute, or second hand. Is it ever "right"?

Not to mention that I've yet to encounter a clock that compensates for the amount of time it takes for light to travel from the clock face to my eyes, as well as the time it takes for my brain to process that information.

When watching science fiction made a few decades ago, one thing that bothered me was that the technology had a lot of fancy LEDs/bulbs that flashed but apparently did nothing else.

See any console on the original Star Trek, or Al's handheld during the first season of Quantum Leap.

But now it makes total sense. They were notification LEDs! Notifying about EVERYTHING!
