Rikkitic: Only fuzzy-brained Anglo types use the archaic am/pm designations anyway. The advanced nations of the world do not have to re-use the same numbers because they can't count past 12. They know how to tell time the grown-up way, with the 24 hours god intended. There can be no mistaking 0600 hours with 1800, even at the South Pole.

Seeing a business list their hours as 10-22 seems nice and succinct.

I'm going to nominate the Wellington Wairarapa train.

 

One station (Maymorn, I think) has a short platform. They always announce that if you intend alighting there, you need to be at either the "North end" or the "South end" of the train depending on travel direction.

 

Do they think people carry a compass and habitually determine which way a train is pointing?

 

What is wrong with "front of the train" or "back of the train" for heavens sake?!

Damn - that reminds me.

 

Being caught talking to myself.  Not long conversations - and not delusional - I know exactly what's going on here.  Usually abrupt and sometimes extremely vulgar - but I've never offended myself.

So are they open at 10-22 a.m. or 10-22 p.m?

OfficeMax brand staples.  They're either not sharp enough or the metal is too frail, and they jam up the stapler whenever you have more than 3 or 4 sheets.

Hmm, what to write...

OfficeMax brand pens; as soon as you stop writing the pen requires a "wiggle" on the paper to get the ink to flow again

Thumbnail images with 'click to enlarge' functionality, but, the enlarged image is the same size as the thumbnail.
