Just In Time: Record Clock by Andrew van der Westhuyzen

Andrew van der Westhuyzen, a design director at Collider, a creative firm in Sydney, created this clock design for the Record Time exhibition: 24 Clocks, 24 Artists, each design laser-etched. Andrew's design consists of a typed fact at each increment of 15 minutes.

The 'just-in-time' knowledge clock gives random clues with answers that perfectly convert to the time value, "eg. the average molecular weight of a nucleotide is 330 daltons or 3.30am/pm."

I'm afraid that many of these clues would leave me clueless as to the actual time, but I'm sure I could learn a few facts by checking my watch too.
