I prefer the 24-hour kind because game times are always listed this way.

We go by the 24 hour clock at work but I prefer the 12 hour clock.

damn, I'm surprised by the results so far too. I'd figure since most of us are used to the 12-hour clock that would be our preference, especially based on similar polls done. I still prefer the 12-hour but of course that is what I am used to.

Most definitely a 35 hour clock. But if that ain't available I can handle a 12 hour clock.
