which reminds me. Military time. If you think about it, time is really in 24 hours. Rather than how the US goes by, 12 and 12. So that means 11:11am and 22:22pm are the wishing hours. 11:11pm doesn't really exists. All those wishes... gone to waste. Just 48 minutes too late. XD

marriedtothearmy.com has a list of ALL of the terms.. There are a crapload of them, and some of them are just unnecessary.
