Guys, just seeing this fun article at Monochrome Watches. Which has to do
with the reason why clocks, and watches use the Roman Numeral IIII, rather
than IV. Smile

It looks like there is no definite reason to it, but the article goes into some
fun, and interesting possible reasons. From just plain ease of reading, to
being the first way to write '4', to even offending different gods, and kings.

Here is that article...
