    It is a funny sign, but coming from a 24hrs. country I always thought that the AM/PM system has a flaw.
    In reality, 12 AM and 12 PM should not exist AT ALL. It's automatically either 0 AM or 0 PM, and the count starts from there. Think about it: calling 1 minute past noon "12:01 PM" and one hour later "1:01 PM" makes little sense in modern days.
    On the other hand, those were the numbers on clock faces for generations before the digital clock took over, so it would be a hard habit to break by now( if somebody even wanted to do it).

    cut and paste will get you every time.
    I've done that where I've copied a number
    and forgot to change the am/pm.
    then again, I did prof read before printing (or had a new set of eyes look at it)

    But see... that would make sense. We don't like things to make sense here. Hence our fear of the metric system.
