What? And pollute the water? All seriousness aside, he should have some serious esplainin' to do, such as why the ferry was out in such rough water in the first place.

Correct; If they don't know how to take a ship out in rough weather they should stay in port until the weather calms.

How difficult is it to understand the concept of the 24 hour clock, used as far as I know in most countries?

This caught my eye just now, watching the American TV series Homeland:

The digital clock in the wall, this scene from the CIA headquarters in Virginia, US:

The Langley time might or might not be correct, 19:20 if the screenwriters intended this scene to happen at 7:20 PM. But then, see the Zulu time (UTC / GMT time), and the Islamabad time (Pakistan, shortened in the wall as IBD). For the Homeland production team's information, the time in 24 hour clock can never be 25 something or 29 something; it can only be something between 00:00 and 23:59. Midnight is 00:00, noon 12:00.

Not to mention the other time related error in this scene: Zulu time means UTC (previously called GMT). UTC time is 5 hours ahead of Langley time EST or 4 hours ahead Langley time EDT. Never six hours ahead.

Good catch Kari.
That is a great indication of Hollywood. It is amazing that no one in the process of making that show didn't notice that.
No body must of been in the military. They have no idea what Zulu time is and
Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is a night club in London.

Times after 24:00

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24-hou...es_after_24:00

Quote:
Time-of-day notations beyond 24:00 (such as 24:01 or 25:59 instead of 00:01 or 01:59) are not commonly used and not covered by the relevant standards. However, they have been used occasionally in some special contexts in the UK, Japan, Hong Kong and China where business hours extend beyond midnight, such as broadcast television production and scheduling. They also appear in some public transport applications, such as Google's General Transit Feed Specification file format and some ticketing systems (e.g. in Copenhagen). This usage prevents a time period reported without dates from appearing to end before its beginning, e.g. 21:00–01:00.
The transit feed spec was an interesting read.

That does not change my point and the error in the screenshot. Zulu time is and will never be 25:20, nor has it ever been 29:20 o'clock in Islamabad.

Yeah, it's entirely possible someone did it on purpose. Kind of like an Easter Egg. Will anyone notice?

Kari, they know that. They just don't know how to add and subtract.
