I’m sick of the current method for time.
Let’s think about it for a moment… Starting with the stupidity of the 12 hour system. The 12 hour system is nice in the sense it’s easy to count, but they really screwed up it’s implementation. Think about it… the number 12 acts as 0 as opposed to 12… So when your counting AM and PM, what should be PM is on the wrong end of the clock (12 PM is noon, 12 AM is midnight).
And then let’s throw in time zones… Ok, novell idea to keep people in the world believing certain times should be daylight, and certain times should be night… But most humans I would think would adapt to 8:00AM being at night, if that’s what all the clocks showed… Heck, it doesn’t take me long to adapt my ability to read a clock that is off by 3 hours and 21 minutes…
So that said… I am now of the firm belief that everyone should switch to a 24:00 hour clock (military time) and it should all revolve around GMT (or some other fixed location). That way when I say: 18:00 hours, and you live in Australia, you know exactly what time I’m talking about without having to adjust for time zone, daylight savings time, or any other stupid thing that might be getting in the way.
It would also make my life easier as a computer programmer… Because I wouldn’t have to worry about what timezone is displaying to the user.
