I thought it was about time we had one of these. A thread for random questions that you always wanted to ask but didn't know who to ask. OK I will start... Why do almost all alarm clocks have snooze set for 9 minutes? I think every phone I have owned and now my iPhone has snooze set to 9 minutes, I have also checked my only Sony radio / alarm clock and that had 9 minutes snooze. Anyone know what is so special about 9 minutes?
