My idea would divide the 24 hour day into 100 centidays 10 decidays etc. , and have 10 day weeks. this would make the year into 36.5 weeks. The last 5 day week would be 5 days on regular years and 6 days on leap years. this 5 day period would be a 5 day of rest at the end of the year for new year celebrations,
and on leap years it would be 6 days. This 36 weeks would be divded into 6 months or 12, 3 week months, the whole lunar calendar makes no sense so why try to make our months be based off of it? This is why we would use this calendar, this would be very simple to calculate time and when what is, it would also be consistant every year with the exception of leap years.

as a demonstration of why ideas like this suck my GCSE maths teacher made us work in radians for a while. is there any way of leaving rotting fish on the bones?

I've a mind to go ahead and post an idea about separating the year into 100 days for easier record keeping, but I have decided that parodies belong in the annos,(particularly the annum) and not in the ideas.

But don't forget that to God, one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. Maybe we misunderstood him. I think we should switch to a seven thousand year long week. Lucky would the generations be that lived during the thousand year long sabath... Cursed are those who live through a thousand year long Monday

The 10 day week idea gets an instant fishbone, because you just reduced my weekends by around 30%. I dont care if you give me 5 days off at the end of the year - I'm still getting robbed - 52 weekends v/s 36 - thats 16*2 = 32 weekend days less. And in return we get 5 days at the end of the year? Do the math. And who wants to wait 8 days till the weekend? It might make sense if you have 3 day weekends, but its still too many workdays without a weekend. And what would you call the days? Oneday, Twoday, Threeday......... I'm sorry - this is just a bad idea all round. Get yourself a calendar.

10 may match our fingers but is a
bugger of a number. Divide by 2 is easy
but after that, no hope.

12 is excellent - divide by 2, 3, 4, 6 it
works. Divide by 5 is not so good but
then that is why we have 60 seconds/
minutes to allow us to have a 5 division.

It also means our mental arithmetic is
strong and not namby-pamby.

I'm tempted to post a eugenics idea to encourage the birth of polydactile kids. Eventually all humans could have twelve fingers and thus render metric obsolete.
