@wxcafe People in America assume my preference for 24 hour time is a military thing. When in reality I just spent some time outside of the bubble.
Example: I'm filling out a lot of forms and documents recently, alas.
I try to use the ISO date format (YYYY-MM-DD) when I can, but when faced with a date field that is 3 blanks separated by two virgules and I know it's a US form, I *have* to apply context to use either MM/DD/YYYY or (worse MM/DD/YY if that's all there's room for). I *know* people do it other ways outside the US, but I'm here now so that's what I'm doing.
