Roman Numerals on Clocks. IV vs IIII: Who notices?
I had never noticed and the best explanation that I could come up with was thar the IV, positioned a little upside down, is confusing so instead they just use four "I's".
Since then I've discovered that his observation is both accurate and he is extremely unusual in having made it.
I expect great things from that boy.
I saw a pair of clocks in a store the other day with both types right next to each other which always amuses me.
