comment Should I say “have a good night” at 5:00 PM?
Not sure what your native language is, but maybe you have the same problem Germans have with 'night': it sounds like the German word 'Nacht', but while the German word only describes the part of the day you (usually) sleep, the American 'night' starts directly after the afternoon. When Germans wish each other 'Gute Nacht' that implies they will start to sleep very soon. So wishing somebody a 'good night' feels really odd until you realize that the words have a different meaning.

comment What time is 12.00pm?
12.01am of the 15th, because midnight is always the start (and not the end) of the day, but maybe that's just my European perspective. This is what NIST has to say about it: nist.gov/pml/div688/times.cfm In other words: it's ambigous.
