As long as you mean adopt, with the letter O, I share your wish. We wouldn't want to adapt (change) the great 24 hour clock.

No kidding, Jack
! Finally a voice of reason. I've been living here for over 8 years now, and I still haven't gotten used to bloody Fahrenheit (what a joke!), feet and inches (give me a break!), gallons and (liquid) ounces, and pounds and ounces (WTF?). I've actually promised myself not to become a US citizen until the US adopts the metric system. There's a good chance I'll have to stick with my French and Swiss citizenships forever (which I prefer anyway).
