    I keep the blinds open at night. They're just at the right angle for me to see stars from the bed. I don't look for a clock when I wake up. I look at the stars.

    Well...... if there are really 24 hours in one day than each hour should be properly identified. Each hour of the day has a name! You wouldn't like me calling you Jack if your name was John, right?

    That's a data specific political question which is frowned upon on this forum. I think it may even be illegal.? Not Sure? But I think it may be? This is something for others to look into not me! I ain't no Ubuntu attorney!

    Nonetheless, when the clock strikes 00:00 we have ZERO hours. Then 01:00, 02:00, 03:00, 04:00, 05:00, 06:00, 07:00, 08:00, 09:00, 10:00, 11:00,12:00, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00,16:00, 17:00, 18:00, 19:00, 20:00, 21:00, 22:00 23:00 and of course 24:00 and it starts all over again....

    Have you reaslised that in the English language if you call out each hour, each one has it's own name. Quite revolutionary actually, but it is so. It would go to reason that in order to be politically correct you must call each hour by its appropriate name.

    supposedly 24:00 is a rare event, if ever. if your code gets number of seconds since epoch, then maybe 24:00 never happens.

    what are the 24 names?
