Double Time - Captcha Challenge

Got 'double time' as my captcha for my previous post.

Hmmm... let me see... we usually hear the phrase 'double time' in places such as the military academy, a military base, a police outpost, or during those awful dreaded military class at school.

Of course, I bet you, you've used 'double time' in your everyday speech more often than you would care to remember. Moms have used that to get their kids ready for school. Dads have used that to get their kids moving to do the chores at home. Ladies have used the phrase on their lazy boyfriends during their shopping sprees and gentlemen have used it on their girlfriends while getting a... I'll let your imagination work here dear readers...

Anyway, the phrase 'double time' is actually a marching cadence of 180 three-foot steps a minute. A normal cadence is 120 steps a minute hence the 'double time' phrase.

I'm such a slow poke that 'double time' doesn't exist in my vocabulary. LOL!!!
