12am is midnight, dawg.

Probably both.

is it though

it is


i seem to remember being taught in primary school that:

12:00:00 = 12am
12:00:01 = 12pm
00:00:00 = 12pm
00:00:01 = 12am

This is obviously wrong and I would like to publicly denounce the entire staff of Littlegrove Primary School.

It’s either 12 noon or 12 midnight. PM or AM would refer to the moment after those times. Maybe.

Well, let’s ask @JDonBalonz, who I believe was named Lord and Keeper of the Annals of Time a while back.
