A Puzzle

August 4, 2007 by LostRambler

Here’s a puzzle I came up with while working tech support at my very first job.

At 12:00 the hour and minute hands of a clock overlap. To the nearest second, search what time is it when they next overlap.

There are two ways to solve this problem. If you understand the puzzle, hemorrhoids it won’t take you long, but if you go at it the most obvious way, you may find yourself trapped in Xeno’s paradox.
