Analog and Digital Clocks, Part 2

(I'm posting this thread to Forum 2 although it's somewhat of a continuation of a Forum 1 thread, because it's really more of an unrelated tangential rant. Anyway...)

How many people here find it more difficult to read an analog clock than a digital one? I know I can't be alone out there.

It's odd, too; I've always been this way, as far as I can remember. It's not that I *can't* tell time using an analog clock-- it's just that it takes me several seconds to figure out what time it actually is, while most people I know can just glance at the clock and read it immediately. And don't even get me started on those clocks without numbers and/or tick marks for the hours...I can't see how anyone could read those without at least some bit of trouble.

Similarly, I've always preferred wearing digital watches, even though I've several times been offered more "elegant"--occasionally even more expensive--analog ones. I guess I *could* wear a nice fancy analog watch along with a digital watch to actually tell the time, or something along those lines...I dunno, I'm rambling again.

Who knows, maybe it has something to do with the fact that I spent a good amount of my childhood staring at computer monitors. *g*
