xkcd: factoring the time

originally uploaded at xkcd

I would absolutely both think of flipping the clock to 24 hour time and do it, too. The only trouble is, I am also exactly the sort of geeky procrastinator who would factor the time while I whiled away the hours, and have some smartarse spoil my fun. So I’m a bit torn here.

    Numbers? Numbers??
    … runs away screaming…
