ie. Friday doesn't stop at 59 and Saturday doesn't start at 60.
All of these countings are counting intervals of time. Midnight is not actually any of them. No matter whether you count in minutes or seconds of nano seconds, midnight will fall between two of the things you are counting! (And hence will not even be assigned a number in your counting-off.)
Can someone remind me why we are talking about this? I forgot.
