WHAT? Why are there TWO three o'clocks?!24 hours in the day, and we have enough numbers to assign a unique one to each of them.
So do the thai divide a 24 hour day into 1 to 12 AM, 1 to 6 PM, 1 to 6 night? Crazy.
I just found it's even worse, they divide a day into four 6-hour periods: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six-hour_clockSo there are not three, but four three o'clocks in a day.
Here in Germany its even worse, we divide the day into 24 one-hour periods!
and then someone comes with "viertel drei" and people arrive at six different times (2:15, 2:45, 3:15, 14:15, 14:45, 15:15).
Thank goodness, four equal periods makes far more sense than only 3 3 o'clocks.
