Default Why?!?!?!?!!?

OK. I scared. Why is it that every time I look at the clock the time is 17:01?
I'm not kidding- at work, at home I always seem to be compelled to look at the clock at that time even when I haven't a clue what time it is roughly.

ps This inly happens on 24H digital clocks else it really would be cuckoo o'clock.

It also happens to me many times
I guess it's just that you keep those moments in your mind and forget all the other times when you checked the time, because there was less significance to them and so in the end you only remember the 1701 ones...

For me it's always either 1:11 or 11:11. Guess I'm a singular fellow.

And as the old song goes - "Everything is on the one!"

It just happened again!
I'm watching the youtube link in this thread:

and bang!
17:01
And I've just been chatting to Simon Pegg's best mate, Nick Frost which almost but not quite, totally unconnected.

No one's asked the obvious question...is the clock functional?

About a third of the occasions I glance at the time for the past two years it says 3:16, most often in the morning.
