24 hours sounds much less bribable.
So yes.
I'm in for it! :hooray:
I like the "24" more than the "12", but I use both ^^.
Don't mind both but choose 24hr because I'm bored with 12hr. :p

I've been using twelve-hour time for the longest time, but you don't see it applied in life much. What's more, most other countries follow twenty-four hour time, and that carries over to their products. So, I'm working on following it more often.

When reading it on a clock I prefer the 24 hours format.
But when saying it I usually use am/pm kind it's easier.
Same here, all my clocks, my watch, my phone, my computers, they're 24-hour, but if I'm talking I'll use am/pm.

Although come to think of it, my watch has an analogue face so it's 12-hour analogue and 24-hour for digital, just to be confusing.

Awesome that it is the same with you :).

Same counts for me about my watch.
It certainly can be confusing at times.
Ah, interesting! Yeah, I suppose there's a difference when you're reading it and when you're saying it. :nod:

Thanks, pleased to hear you find it interesting.
I found this poll question really interesting as well :).
:nod: there is.
In the Netherlands we'll usually just say the hour of the time it is without adding AM/Pm when meeting someone during the day.

But when I'm meeting with people at a certain time we do use AM/Pm version of that particular time of day.
