Marines are the vegans of the military.

I switched the clock on my phone to military time in October to be more cultured, and realized in December that I sometimes misread time on my phone between 14:00 and 19:59 because the 12-hour clock on my computer is set to Eastern time, and local time is Pacific. My mind is conditioned to subtract three hours from time, so, for example, I see "16:00" and think "6 – 3 = 3:00 p.m."
