24 hours were around for a hell of a lot longer than any military.

You can tell I use military time as I walk around town?

The man owns you compared to my freedom baby.

I don't use it in real life ... I think most other people don't either. :)

I'm glad this topic came back to life. I bookmarked this thread when I found this site last autumn because I thought it was great that people started talking about not obeying daylight savings time. I hoped there would be resistance to the government expanding it. I don't like DST because it is artificial and the standard time zones are already far off from solar time in most areas. I like how NHFT is closer to the real New Hampshire solar time than EST.

I am in high school and started getting interested in time and astronomy last year. I have found some other time zones that are offset fifteen minutes.

UTC +12:45 is Chatham Islands Standard Time in New Zealand
Nepal is UTC +5:45
UTC +8:45 sounds like an interesting place http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTC%2B8:45

24-hour time is also known as railway time. If you don't like that it sounds militaristic, you could just say "nineteen o clock" instead of "nineteen hundred hours." Just a thought.

For now, I'm in the land of Pacific Daylight Time. :(

I hope you keep on sticking it to The Man!

Welcome to nhfree, Thomas.

Start making your plans to attend college in NH and you can stick it to the Man, too.

Thank you for the welcome Kate. New Hampshire seems like an interesting place to be. I'm not sure if I'll go to college. I would rather work and earn some $.

Yeah error, my user name is obviously from the Back To The Future. I saw the trilogy again last year and it got me thinking about the concepts surrounding time and related subjects. NHFT reminds me of the first movie's early scene in Doc Brown's garage when all the clocks are synchronized 25 minutes behind PDT ;D Cue Huey Lewis...

A related piece of BTTF trivia is that the weekend the movie is set in October 1985 is the one daylight savings time switched back to standard time. OK I'm a nerd, what can I say.

Back To The Future was my favorite movie in the '80s and I think it has stood the test of time (no pun intended).

In spite of this weekend's snow storm, Spring will arrive in The Shire on Tuesday March 20 at 7:22 PM NHFT. :icon_flower:

Working without paying state income tax would be nice. nhfree.com certainly is a great resource with lots of varied topics and nice people. :)
