When is Wednesday not Wednesday?

Or when is 21st Century not 21st Century? They are not what they are when information have to be dumbed down to the lowest denominator!

Apparently the Star Wars Episode III preview tickets that we have for May 18th, Wednesday 12:01 a.m. is not for tonight. It is for tomorrow night, i.e. Thursday 12:01 a.m. Why? Apparently it is because it is Wednesday evening so it is Wednesday 12:01 a.m. I would have given them the benefit of my doubt if they had used 12:00 a.m. but 12:01 a.m.?

Look at Fandango or MovieTickets.com and see for yourself.

Oh and the millennium thing? The year 2000 is still in the 20th Century. January 1st, 2001 is the first day of the 21st Century. Just like if you are born on January 1st, 0000, you are not one year old until January 1st, 0001. Or two thousands years old until January 1st, 20001. Stupid!

I am sorry? Did I lose you on my logical explanation of the concerpt of the forth dimension?

So, no Star Wars tonight due to the population inability to discern date time. I hate stupid people and the dumbing down to accommodate them. How about this for an idea? Let’s educate people so they understand simple concept as date and time?

    Ridiculous. 12:01am on the eighteenth is distinctly the evening between the seventeenth and the eighteenth. I weep for your pain, but cannot empathize as I am not going until Friday or Saturday.
