Why is military time better to use?
January 28, 2008 6:32PM
Because you don't have to distinguish between AM and PM. 3:00am and 3:00pm are different so it's easier to say 0300 for AM and 1500 for PM and you can clearly see the difference.

Asked in US Army
What is 1400 in military time?
1400 military time is the same as 2 p.m. in the civilian world, although it is worth noting that many European countries use military time in train schedules and airline arrivals and departures. Additionally, with the military spread throughout the world, it is common to use the local time zone; e.g. 1400 EST (eastern standard time) to ensure there is no confusion. .

Why do most health care facilities use military time rather than Greenwich time?
You're taking two entirely different things and implying they're the same - they are not. "Military time" is not a time zone - the military uses the time zone of the area of operations which they are active in. It is just a manner of displaying time, and is not one exclusive to the military - the term "military time" simply means that the use of the 24 hour clock is distinct, namely in a country which traditionally uses the 12 hour clock. Greenwich mean time is an actual time zone, and it's a bit pointless for medical facilities to use it when they're in an entirely different time zone.

Asked in Nintendo 3DS
How do you delete notifications on a 3ds?
You can't! I just talked to Nintendo about this and the stupid military time that you cannot change to 12 hour. Which is incredibly ignorant! The only people who use military time are military people and maybe Nintendo. But certainly not me and definitely not normal children. The excuse I got was that they may not have had room to put an am or pm, so they did it to avoid confusion. Confusion like having to count on your fingers everything after 12 pm because you are not familiar with military time? I love the 3DS, but it needed better development.
