馃悙 1-Week Results! 馃搳

As an Australian, 12H is our default format, so I was really surprised at how popular 24H time format is around the world! 馃く Thanks to everyone who Voted. 馃檹

Results were taken from my YouTube Profile's Community Tab.

What do you think of the results?

Must we militarize everything? Ha!!!

It鈥檚 the first thing I do when I get a new Digi watch: set the time to 24h.

24-hour format is used in civilian life by basically all of Europe and Asia.

We don't, unless everyone stays calm and accepts that 24h is the ISO standard. 馃榾

Now do a poll for newer Casios: DD. MM. or MM. DD. 馃榾

I'll start practicing, my friend, but nearing 60 years of saying 4pm is going to be darn impossible to say its "sixteen hundred" without people thinking Im bananas.

I say "four o'clock". Only when I want to be precise I say "sixteen zero zero". Most people do it like that here. Low numbers for practicality, standard for unambiguousness.

As an American, I've used 24hr clocks on any digital clock, watch/phone/vehicle, since I was like 7 years old. I've always been around people who use 12hr, so I figured I might as well use 24hr because it'd mean I would inevitably develop an intuitive grasp of both. I never tell people the time in 24hr because most would have to convert to have any sense of what it meant, but I am entirely comfortable with either now, even prefer 24hr. Having to convert to tell anyone the time is a bit of a hassle at first, but it doesn't take long before you just know what each is in the other format without having to do the simple math when you are converting it routinely.

24 hour people are crazy

But why? Isn鈥檛 it easier to express the day in 24 hours rather than 2x12? That said, in verbal communication we usually also just use 12-hour format since the numbers are shorter to say 馃槀

Yeah this is pretty much it, it鈥檚 all verbal. People ask the time with words!

I saw another fellow comment saying instead of 4PM, it was common for people to say out loud 鈥渟ixteen zero zero鈥 which is baffling to me, as it鈥檚 too many syllables 馃榿

I do appreciate that 24H time is undeniably less ambiguous though.

Haha meant to say oral/spoken communication of course. Even sixteen hundred is short than sixteen zero zero, so that really is unnecessarily long 馃槀
