Clockwise is negative - 11 March, 2009

why was it decided that all analog clocks in the world should have their hands rotate in the negative angular direction?

it bugs me when ever i see an analog clock, because it seems to be saying that we are traveling negatively through time.

Eh, arbitrary decisions exist everywhere. I mean, why do electrons have negative charge? Because protons HAD to be positive.

I do agree though; there are a lot of things like clocks spinning the "wrong" way that certainly make me tug at my hair, but these aren't exactly things that are easily reformed.
