    What does this saying mean - "Even a broken clock is right twice a day"?

    Re: Broken clock

    you know a broken clock doesn't work. so it stops. and the time it stops (let's say 1:25) shows the correct 1:25 twice a day, in the afternoon and at night. But a slow or fast clock (behind and in front of real time) has no chance to show the real time.
