Why does the hour-hand is shorter than a minute-hand, while the hour is 60 times longer than a minute?

But the hour hand is thicker...

Food for thought.

I'd imagine the reasoning being since there are so many minutes one would need the arrow to be closer to the ticks for better reference...also, in matters of appointment, the minute is a more pressing measure.

Or a conspiracy..just as likely :paranoid:.

Not the time is right where the timing and location where you are. I learned that every minute is an opportunity to do what you've done before.

Tell me what you been doing?

The minute hand is overcompensating.
