We know it must not be a 24-hour clock. On that setting, 4:31 would be in the afternoon, not at night. 15:11, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

I cannot tell if you are misguided, trolling or just hallucinating in the style of this comic. So - well done! 18:18, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Quite the opposite. 13:00 is 1 in the afternoon, and 4:31 would be 4:31 at night. 04:48, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

I know it's quite a long shot, but polish writer Bruno Shulz wrote a novel "Cinamon Shops", which surprisingly have a style of insomnia-crazy visions. More : 11:48, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

A typical situation with insomnia is when you blink your eyes for just a moment, then look at the clock and find that in reality a couple of hours have passed (with you asleep though all this time even though you didn't feel like it). Focusing the eyes on the clock afterwards is not an easy task either, so the creative readings are not unusual. Overall, the situation is much more realistic than it seems at first. 22:27, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
