From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

I don't know who you are, 
but I will find you...

...and tell you that 24-hour clock time is splendidly accurate (it is 15:00 in Chicago as I post this). 
There are fewer problematic a.m./p.m. lapses, and all it takes is a few minutes to learn.

And why some keep on calling it "military time" even in their humble civilian contexts, is beyond  me.. It does go to show, though, that when there needs to be absolute temporal precision, the military (anywhere) doesn't mess around.

Twenty-four hour time. 

It's for everyone (civil and martial; 文 and  武).

Onward, interdenominational and pan-temporal soldiers. a broken clock is only right...once a day—if it has a working battery.
