Good catch on the zero, as for not ebing 24 hours, well it's an American clock. They use Am and PM instead.

Indeed. The only country I can think of that very much likes the twenty-four hour clock is Germany (or so I have heard).

That's right, the am/pm system is quite unusual here. The 24h system is used mainly in written form though, and on TV and radio etc. People mostly say e.g. "8 o' clock" for 8am and 8pm.

Kittin: check the profiles- most people have their country in there.
And DK likes the 24h clock (but not me) and the army (in almost all countries)

Most european countries use the 24h mode clock. But I think in everyday-talk, we use the 12h mode.
