Decimal Time

Right, have had this in the back of my head for a bit now; time to get it written down. We need to change our current measurements of time. Seconds, minutes, hours, weeks, months; the clock; the calendar; all nine of those yards. Base 10 is the way forward.

The way our current system works is the derivation of a historical learning. The actual finite length that days and years run for are clearly a given, so these stay as is.

Having a brief google for this lot, there’s a whole minefield of thinking on the subject, so at least I know there’s support already. But there are various ways of doing it. This is, IMHO what I strongly suggest we adopt:

100 seconds in a minute.

100 minutes in an hour.

10 hours in a day.

10 days in a week.

10 months in a year.

36 or 37 day months in a year (the odd-numbered months have 37 days and the even-numbered ones have 36). Leap year would make December a 37 day month every 4 years.

June and July are done away with, September thru December then become their respective names’ numbers. i.e. Sept = 7th month, October is eighth etc..

The clock would look like this, the calendar like so.
