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.

Didn't vote. I am okay with both. Though, saying 4pm is easier than 16:00. If the am/pm is stated, it's really not that hard.

Yeah, I agree. Then again, I'm more used to AM/PM. :shrug:

Since you didn't vote, the results are 59% 12-hour, 41% 24-hour. :lol:

Oh. We have AM/PM clocks (digital) too, and the normal ones where they don't show. :lol:
There isn't a both option so...:P

I grew up learning on the 24hr system so I prefer it most of the time. It took me about 5 years to get when am and when pm was.. it was so horrible :(

Haha, that's so interesting! For me, I only think in AM/PM. It takes me a while to convert 15:00 to 3:00 PM. :lol: But I suppose it really depends on what you grow up on. :nod:

My family members that served in the military all use 24-hour time, but I find it confusing. I prefer the AM/PM version!

I've always preferred 24 hour over 12 hour, but 24 hour clocks aren't that easy to find in America. :shakefist:

12-hour clock is ambiguous, therefore harder to read.

It is if it's missing its am/pm, but I meant that if it's 5pm, it's easier than 17:00, for example. With the latter, there's almost a calculation involved there whereas 5pm is quite straightforward. :nod:
