24. Why use an additional piece of information when you can just convey what you want in 1 piece of information? Also, AM and PM are stupid abbreviations. Why use M, when that could easily apply to midnight? Or A, which could stand for after? Fuck this retarded ass shit.

When you have a mechanical clock that _displays_ 12 hours you can still use 24 hour nomenclature.

24 ofc, the periodicity when living on Earth is kinda nice. If I lived permanently underground, I'd go for 30-32 hour 'days', and redefine my circadian rhythm.
This is no 12 am, just as there is no 24:00, though it take a thought or two to recognize.

I'm honestly not sure. Some of my clocks are configured to display the time in 12 hour format. Others use 24 hour format. I'm not even sure which is which any more. I live in a turmoil-infused hell hole of different clocks yelling different times in different ways but trying to meet in the middle and mean the same thing, and I have to constantly exercise my own vigilance in reading the clocks the right way so that they don't leap off my walls and into my home, ready to fight their part in the war of the clocks. I hear the constant ticking of each clock, angry, insane, ready to strike at any moment, constantly battling with each other from second to second, ticking louder and harder with rage, a carnivorous and dominant rage, a rage filled with hatred for the other clock method.
I don't know what side I lean towards any more. I suspect I didn't know when I started setting some of the clocks to 24 hour time. I don't think I'll ever know.
Flee this battle, brothers and sisters, for it's the clocks' fight, not ours.

"Let's meet at 15" is much easier to say than "let's meet at 3 in the afternoon" and less bloated than 3pm.

Carson Adams

I'm too used to 12hr formats.
I mean I spent most of my life with analog clocks and watches.
Only recently have I replaced my Analog Clock with a digital one that also has a digital humidity and thermometer.

The analog humidity gauge kept getting stuck and I had to tap it a few times every time.
I replaced my analog watch with a smart bracelet almost two years ago when it jammed and costed too much to fix.
Now I don't have a ticking time piece on my wrist or on my desk and my tinnitus gets very apparent when I don't have the fan on. The fan is almost 19 years old, if it dies and I replace it with the new fangled silent DC fans I'll have to look into other ways to take my mind off the ringing. Maybe I'll play some rainy mood on loop or something.

I usually don't have to say am or pm, I mean when someone asks me the time you can tell if it's am or pm because of the sun. When I'm setting up a meeting time it's usually something like, 3 in the morning, or 3 in the afternoon. Or something like meet me at noon, or we'll go for beers at midnight.

True story, one time I woke up and thought it was 6:54PM and I couldn't find my little brother anywhere and started to panic a little and run around outside looking for him. Then I ended up realizeing it was 6:54 """ AM """ and that he had been asleep in his bed the whole time.

that's why I use 24-hour clocks now.

Lincoln Bailey

In casual speech it's "three".
If there's some kind of importance to the time, it's "fifteen".
our train leaves at fifteen twenty-five, let's meet up before that to get to the platform before the rush
Written outside a work of fiction, it's "15:00".

12-hour clocks are very problematic, what day does 12:30AM belong to?

They are mechanical, and there is a defrost setting right on the power dial. There is no reason for a microwave to need to know the time.

I specifically bought an all-mechanical microwave oven when moving from home. Dad kept setting fire to the digital ones.
hit the time button too many times, or hit the 10-minute button instead of the 10-second
time set by turning a knob, turn it backwards and it rolls over to 90 minutes
Every time I visit a friend there's a new interface that's completely different from all others.

PRO TIP: Nuke foods at 600W for 1.5-2 times as long to get the center hot instead of the usual burnt edges and icy middle.

I honestly dont care, I used to be in an industry where 24h format is the norm and even required but outside some people used 24 and others 12 (mostly australians and anglo), it literally made no difference, there were more important things (like going to a bar/pub after work, thats were real bantz happened) , also when growing up (Europe) my grandfather used 12 hours only because in those days there were hardly any digital clocks so when someone irl uses 12h its nice.

Commercial grade microwaves also tend to be mechanical and also often don't have a turn table

Brody Baker

That looks like something based on induction rather than a microwave.

Samuel Gomez
Samuel Gomez

12 post meridian, or 12 ante meridian? Meridian meaning midday in that context, it is confusing and there is no proper answer since midnight is both 12h after or before midday.

With the 24h clock, you have 00:00 for midnight and it is not confusing.

Context isn't always well established and say you wanna meet on the week-end with a friend a week from now. Meeting at 10 in the morning or the evening is plausible.

Isaac James

I googled commercial microwaves on google and everything but a Panasonic was digital. Are you sure you aren't mistaking microwaves by electric ovens? Because these are 100% mechanical and don't need to spin.

Alexander Davis

But 12 pm makes nore sense as midday since after midday you are obviously post midday. So 12:30pm is 12:30 while 12:30am is 00:00

Joshua Clark

the context in which you are saying it avoids confusion 99.9% of the time

In hospitals, even in the west, we use 24h but both are just as easy to use. 24h is just a bit more standardized and used in areas where people realistically go work in the night so saying "at 3" could mean 3 am. Outside of those situations, 3 = 3pm in almost every context. If you were talking to a bar sloot before closing and said "3", you'd probably mean 3 am.

Owen Peterson
Owen Peterson

it's twelve hours after midday because the clock goes forward

Adam Nguyen
Adam Nguyen

By convention, 12 am refers to midnight at the start of the specified day (00:00 on the 24 hour clock) and 12 pm to midnight at the end of that day (24:00 on the 24 hour clock). It can be argued that by the time you have seen a clock showing 12:00 at midnight it is already ante meridiem, and similarly at midday it is already post meridiem. You can see that the 24-hour clock is much clearer.

12 noon is, by definition, neither ante meridiem (before midday) nor post meridiem (after midday). For clarity, times in the first hour of the day are sometimes given with am, such as 00:47 am, and the time twelve hours later given as 12:47 pm.
