    glad I am that i didnt write anything more stupidder than that!
    I thought the timing looked cockeid, and i even double checked it in my head, twice!!
    but in the end, i was sure that 1251 am was almost 2 hours after 11 am.
    starting the day at midnight doesnt make as much sense as ending the day at midnight..
    i still get confused over something this simple, weird since i understand the international date line thing.
    just getting old and feeble minded i guess, yesterday i turned 58.
    it wouldnt have happened if we all just used military time.
    anyhoo just wanted to pad my post count, and waste some more of your time
    with my drivel.

    The clock on this forum is.......... Questionable.

    I have seen posts' here that were 3 hours ahead of the actual time one minute, and then minutes later when I looked again the time was minus 3 hours what it had just been...... WTH??

    There isnt anything wrong with the clock on the forum... unless your forum settings are not correct.

    12:51am is 10 hours and 9 minutes before 11:00am on every clock.

    11:00am is NOT 1 hour and 51 minutes after 12:51am. That would be pm.

    I've noticed that the time is different before I log in and after I log in. I have also noticed that the time can change if I reload a page I am reading. That time change, however, is rare.


    OT
    I think that 12am and 12pm ought to be the opposite. It is very confusing and illogical. You have 11:59am. We all know that is late morning. Followed by 12pm? That just doesn't make sense, at least to me. I understand the meaning of AM and PM. I just think a different method of defining the change from morning to afternoon should have been used to avoid confusion. If you see my following explanation, you may see why I would like 12am to follow 11:59am.

    In our system of counting, the number 12 logically follows the number 11. So, why doesn't it follow it with the attached "am" in time?

    One second after 12am, we would be into "after" noon, with 12am being "recognized" as noon. (See asterisk * below)

    Therefore:
    In my opinion, technically, noon is 12:00:00:05 (See Pendulum below)
    One second after noon we would have 0:00:01pm.
    One minute after noon we would have 0:01:00pm.
    One hour after noon we would have 1:00:00pm.
    Therefore, logically, in my thinking, midnight would be 12:00:00:05. (See Pendulum below)
    Note: I have intentionally left out am and pm with the two times 12:00:00:05. This time represents neither am or pm. It is the break or gap between the two. (See "pendulum" below for my reasoning.)


    What does AM and PM stand for?
    The abbreviation am stands for ante meridiem which is Latin for “before mid day” and pm stands for post meridiem which is Latin for “after mid day.” This translates into the English form of “before noon” and “afternoon.”
    http://wanttoknowit.com/what-does-am-and-pm-stand-for/

    Pendulum

    *After looking at the meaning for am and pm, it is my theory that true "mid day" or actual "noon" technically lies halfway between 12:00:00am and 0:00:01pm. It is like a pendulum swinging back and forth. At the end of a movement, whether moving right or left, there is a point that the pendulum completely stops and then starts going in the reverse direction. Therefore, like the pendulum, it is at that changing point "in time" that true "noon" lies between 12:00:00am and 0:00:01pm. Therefore, my 12:00:00:05 represents that stopping point between am and pm.

    1245ADefender,
    I am all in favor of using military time. It removes all confusion. See my post above on AM and PM. That really is confusing. I looked up on the Internet what people thought when AM and PM were in the day, there is much confusion among the populace. Military time would remove that confusion...except for people who haven't learned to count beyond 12.

    I say lets go for it here. It would confuse the gun control lobby. They can not see the facts, lets alone count.
    how many "Brady gun deaths per day"? 3? 9? 21?

    depends on what made up 'report; they use.
