Hands On A Clock (Posted on 2004-07-05) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Do the three hands on an analog clock (hours, minutes, seconds) ever divide the face of the clock into three equal segments, i.e. 120 degrees between each hand?

Right.  You had asked for a time around that time and I was pointing out it is neither a solution nor was the second hand parallel to either other hand.  The very first comment has the identification of all the failed times, when the hour and minute hand are 120 degrees apart and at none of them is the second hand 120 degrees away, so that there is no solution.
