Re: What time is it?

At least one part of both hands (the pivot points) are coincident and so always at the same distance from anything (in terms of the x and y dimensions) including the 6.
The condition is, therefore, met at all times.

(Incidentally, my clock is a projection clock so the hour and minute hands actually do occupy the same plane in case anyone was wondering.)

Since the condition specified is always met the question simplifies to "what's the exact time?"
Well, the forum software timestamps posts reasonably accurately. The time now is 06:22 PM. All times are GMT -5.

The time zone can be changed in your UserCP --> Options.

I certainly will, just giving some more time to experts who might have missed the quiz.

Assuming you don't count mid-tick, in which case the question is unsolvable without more information. If both hands "tick," my answer was correct.

However, I don't know that I've ever seen a clock like that.

And if you're going to ask when the ends of the hands are equidistant when the hands are different lengths, then that's unanswerable unless you know the ratio between the minute hand, hour hand, and clock face radius.

IMO you haven't provided sufficient details to solve your puzzle.
