Introducing USA hour format.
@emacsomancer wait does subway tooter just randomly replace everything that looks like an emoji code
@cisene You say that, but I can't really read analog clocks.
I can always be off by one increment, and it really depends on the watch what a certain position of the arms means :D
Like some do jumps at their intervalls, others move smoothly over the interval, so one's 5:59 might be another's 6:59.
How about the loved fractionals?
7½AM is easy (07:30),
8⅜PM needs a little thinking (20:12:30),
and 9.13/32 a calculator (21:24:27.5)
@Sylvhem In Texas Standard Time you put a stick in the ground and measure the angle of the sun, because that's how they did it in the Texas school approved bibles.
@Sylvhem here in Canada depending on the region we use both mm:hh:ss and hh:mm:ss and unless the minute is ≥24 there's no way to tell the two formats apart easily…
@Sylvhem 24-hour time is traditionally written without a colon (1800 instead of 18:00,) and the Army add the word "hours" after the military time (e.g. "eighteen hundred hours".) LOL
