    And I don’t give a fuck what you think about my comment. I’m glad we got that settled.

    Well I grew up in South Africa and I happen to be a German citizen. I studied in Germany and decided to stay for now…

    Let’s agree to disagree. My British friends all use 24-hour!

    So you’re originally from South Africa but now you’re from Germany? How’d that happen?
    South African English is quite off the standard in a few ways. I would stand by my claim that it’s uncommon to use the 24-hour format in the two main varieties, BE and AE. Then again, of course, there is no clear cut standard to either of those.

    South Africa but now Germany. You generally write in 24-hour format, but read as if it is 12-hour format. So if you get an invitation to an event that starts at 14:00, you’d read it is “2”. Also, whether it is am/pm can simply be deduced through implication and context. It also may just be a dialectical thing…

    You should read Rilke’s poems. Actually it can be pretty gay. 😀

    if people note down 14:00, they’d commonly read it as fourteen hundred hours. That’s military time. Correct, but uncommon in everyday civilian life.

    I don’t like math that much but your disregard for the equals sign even I find disturbing. How can any country be equal to a squirrel? That’s not where I’d want to spend my holidays…

    In der Tat herrscht international auch das “Vorurteil” vor, dass Deutsche an sich alle gutes Englisch sprächen…

    Was soll daran so “arm” sein? Bist Du so perfekt im Englischen? Machst Du nie Fehler? Dann musst Du geradezu ein Ausnahmetalent sein. Doch angesichts Deines hochintelligenten Statements wage ich das zu bezweifeln. Viele Grüße von einem Englischlehrer.
