Do clocks still use AM and PM?

I mean isn't it kinda obvious when it is 1pm and 1am with y'know, the lack of sun?

Fuck am & pm, use 24 hour clocks. Don't need to note if it's am or pm when it's 1300.

Plus it would be confusing in the army, though I do think it would be great if soldiers when asked said "a quarter to one" instead of 12hunderd hours and 45 minutes", or do they say "quarter to"?

yeah, 24 hour clock makes sense in terms of automatically knowing if it's am and pm, but with the 12 hour clock, I still like it there. imagine if you were being held hostage in a cave and woke up after being knocked out for days, and you checked your watch and, yeah. I'm done.

I mostly use the am/pm clock. It seems more comfortable.


Also, why is this thread in ST?

24 hour clocks FTW. I still can't get used to this 12 hour am/pm thing over here.

I use both am/pm clocks and 24hr clocks. the bus schedules here are all 24hr times. saves space on the boards and such. but like my computer is on am/pm
