No me neither, not a numbers person...I can barely tell time anyway (tying shoes is another matter)

The roman numeral 4 on the clock is IIII, but should be IV.

Close, Jules, but the Romans used a wide variety of symbols for their numbers without any definitive version emerging (once into the 1000s it was often anyone's guess.
Sorry, but answer is rather facile: pic shows 3.07, posted at 3.06. Rather silly perhaps, but time is also one of the most haunting phenomena I know.
