Engineering Log: The T.H. Epic, Schematics Vol.1

In the off-chance that you are interested in writing a line of verse for every second in a 12-hour period with the end lines of each stanza/poem being determined by the various crossings of the three clock hands, here’s all of those calculations made for you from when the crossings happen to how many lines of verse that makes.

Please note

1 Calculations were quadruple-checked using a spreadsheet and estimations of when/how to round down or up were made by said spreadsheet.

2 Sometimes the second-hand crosses both the minute- and hour-hands within the same fraction of a second, but not at the same exact time. All three hands only align at midnight/noon/12 when the epic ends.

3 The second-hand crossing the hour-hand happens 719 times every 12 hours and is marked “S crosses H.” The second-hand crossing the minute-hand happens 59 times every hour and is marked “S crosses M.” The minute-hand crossing the hour-hand happens 11 times every 12 hours and is marked “M crosses H.”

4 I did originally post these calculations as numbered lists, went back and copy/pasted the relevant section of the spreadsheet to avoid any typos from throwing off your ability to write your own timed horological epic.

5 The list of times below is only for One -Eleventh of the crossings, listing of all the crossings is happening over 11 posts with each ending with one of the 11 times that the minute-hand crosses the hour-hand.
