    I use 24 time enough in tech that I am "fluent" in it. However, I never really though to change it on my phone.

    I went through a phase in high school where I changed by digital watch to 24 time.

    My dad is passionate about only using 24hr time. He also used the military date thing, which gets on my nerves. 18-Jan 2013 is annoying. For dates, I sort like a computer would, 2013-01-18.

    I set my region & language to UK on my device, so I see "18 January" on my lock screen.

    Both. I work in Corrections and we use 24 hour time, however all the clocks at home are set using 12 hour because my wife doesn't like 24 hour. As for the time on my personal phone or whatever, it depends on which mood strikes me. If I'm resetting it right after I got off work, its more likely to be in 24 hour format, however if I'm at home and glance at a clock, I'm likely to set it to 12 hour.

    However, I prefer 24 hour. Just as I prefer metric measurements and Celcius temperatures. They all make much more sense and are based on logical things (base 10 measurements, actual number of hours in the day, 0 is freezing 100 is boiling, a gram is the weight of one cubic centemeter of water, a mililiter is the volume of a cubic cm, etc.). "American" measurements seem arbitrary and I perfer something based on logic (12 inches in a foot, 3 feet in a yard, 5,xxx feet in a mile, Mr. Farinhight was 32 when he made his system so that is the freezing point of water, ounces are both a measure of weight and volume).

    I prefer the metric system too, but I have a science background (BS in biology and 11 years in QA testing in a chemistry lab).

    ...all this years I've studied biology, and I can't think of a cool and nerdy insider biology joke, and therefore I just attach one I've seen on 9gag
