Granted, most of the mass population doesn't use these means, and some are not that technical when it comes to spelling what you think you know. To me, verifying a claim to knowledge starts with spelling things right to start with....otherwise, in my eyes, you don't have much to back up the claim. I can honestly say I can spell my career, and almost anything associated with it in terms. I by no means intend to say that those who cannot spell what they are talking about know nothing of what they say....after all, speech and the written word are different in a lot of ways.

    Give me a break please RamRod... it's late and I wasn't spell checking as I was typing. I shoulda just said GMT instead of *Greenwich*

    That's good enough for me too. Push forward and the people on the ground get bigger. Pull back and they get smaller, then they get bigger again.

    I wasn't thinking that way but your correct. My apologies.

    Subtract 2 and disregard the 1.

    I work in LE and we use a 24 hour clock. This is the best way I found to find the REAL time.

    I really like the 24 hour clock/Military time and think it should be used more in this country. There is no ambiguity; it's 0600 or 1800; not 6 "in the morning" or 6 "at night".

    I got it drilled into me pretty quick in the Army but can understand how the OP mixed up the times. Try that in the military though..."Sergeant, I thought you said 7"

    I did some computer repair for a neighbor once and she said she what do I owe you? I said nothing, she said "anything at all", I said ya'll have done enough stuff for us (watching animals and such) we probably owe you.

    It wasn't until afterward that I though about it what she was really saying. She wasn't Italian,.. even if I would have understood the inference I would have passed.
