Why is clockwise counterclockwise
When you look at another person who is right handed, their right
hand is across from your left hand yet you say they are right-handed.
When you look at a clock and its hands are turning to the right
you say this is clockwise. From the clock's perspective though,
its hands are turning counterclockwise. Why?
The answer is because people are more important than clocks and
when this rule was made it was put up for public debate and because
clocks did not have a Political Action Committee in Washington D.C.
at the time, they just have to live with the rules and regulations
established by other governing bodies.
