    Full of rage, Bruce shakes his fist at the computer screen. "Don't make me angry, mildly-WTF code. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry", he states. Next thing you know, Bruce's right index finger grows to twice its normal size. The transformed digit has become green and veiny. "HULK SMASH! WHERE 'SUBMIT WTF' BUTTON?! ARRRGGHHH!!!"

    With the brief exception of 'WY', it's always Texas-o'clock.

    Perl does, for initializing hashes, only it doesn't use the "array" keyword to do it.

    In Australia it is easier....

    TRWTF is that people don't get the 24hour clock. And no, it's not "Military time", the military just happens to use it.

    Scala too:

    scala>

    scala> println("12:00:00 -> " + format("12:00:00")) 12:00:00 -> 12:00 pm

    scala> println("WTF -> " + format("WTF")) WTF -> Wyoming

    Looking at the performance of American military in recent years (I mean since the end of WWI), even code as bad as this would make a great improvement...

    Any array can be defined by =>

    $foo = array(1, 2, 3, 4); // Equals $bar = array(0=>1, 1=>2, 2=>3, 3=>4); // 5.4 $foobar = [1, 2, 3, 4];

    Well, for starters, the one true date/time format includes a time zone offset, for example 18:30:00-04:00.

    The only acceptable time format is clearly MM hh ss.

    So 30 6 10 reads "Thirty minutes past six and 10 seconds" like some Americans might say it.
