The dates fall on different days of the week every year. The months all have different numbers of days, with no rhyme or reason. There’s plenty of inefficiency built into the modern calendar. But according to Johns Hopkins astronomer Richard Conn Henry, that doesn’t have to be the case. According to his proposed calendar, eight of the months would have 30 days, with 31 days every third month. Every few years, an antire week would be added to make up for the lost time. But, on the upside, years would work like clockwork. Holidays would fall on the same day every year. Christmas and New Years would both fall on a Sunday. And the plan would save money by making interest calculations much easier. Aside from centuries of convention, I can’t image what would stand in Henry’s way!
Check out World Time Format, another new calendar and universal time standard.
and there’s an iPhone app for it called WTF Clock
It tells time with letters. 26 hours in a day, A-Z, each about 5 minutes shorter than a regular hour. 26 Alphabetic Minutes in an hour, etc.
26 days in an Alphabetic Month, 26 Alphabetic Months in an Alphabetic Year
Right now the date and time is TAU:TSB everywhere in the world.
It’s an Internet time, not based on season or sun, just easy to text - “Conference call at :P” - with no time zone confusion. Doesn’t matter where in the world everyone is, it is :P at the same time for everyone.
