A.M / P.M
    #3167985 - 09/23/04 01:43 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)


I'm not sure if anyone ever wonders about this, but I think it's a fairly overlooked, and maybe a very under taught fact. But does anyone know what exactly the A.M and P.M mean when speaking of time. i.e 12:34am.

I believe it mean Anti-Meridian and Post Meridian. But I could be wrong, and I'm a little to sleepy to use google full force.

Do you guys think this is something that's generally unknown? Seems to me it is....

I'd like to take this opportunity to announce that from this moment forward I will be dedicating very little time and effort to spread this knowledge. This is my pledge, and follow it, I will.

Yup, I know where that is..I think it's a couple hours from where I now reside. I used to live alot closer, and I don't find it hard to believe that it's your favorite place.

indeed, ante and post are latin words and mean before and after. I guess meridian means noon or something.

like in poker:
"ante up, boys"
(the mandatory bet before you even see your cards, right?)
~
& meridians are the vertical lines (the lines of longitude) found on a globe; & when the sun is directly over "your" meridian, it is noon where you are; & when it's over the meridian 180 degrees away from you, it's midnight where you are...

(assuming that we actually live on the exterior surface of a sphere about 8000 mmiles in diameter & the sun actually is a big ball of fusing hydrogen 93 million miles away... heh...)
