Discussion on: A future without time zones

The terms "noon" and "midnight" have become misnomers, but nobody minds

But everyone still uses AM and PM suffixes? I don't like this reality! If we're going to change it to one time system, let's use the 24-hour clock (if we have to stick to 24-hour days anyway)

11A7P becomes 11Q191. Suddenly we don't have to think about duplicates. Did Fred say 10PM or 10AM? I brought the merchandise, but did I miss the exchange? How will I get my kidnapped dog back now?

  1. Why Q? Why not.
