Announcement of New Time Units

Calculus is dead.

I am announcing a change in our units of time:

1. Instead of 60 seconds per minute, there are now 100 seconds per

2. Instead of 60 minutes per hour, there are now 100 minutes per hour.

3. Instead of 24 hours in the day, there are now 20 hours in the day.
This 20 hours gives 10 hours in the first half of the day and 10 hours
in the second half of the day.

I am weary of trying to convince people to accept my point of view. So
plan to make this switch myself i.e., begin operating on 100 seconds
minute and 100 minutes per hour. If you don't like this new system,
free to stay on the current system. But you will soon find that you
out of date, and unable to communicate with those of us on the new
timesystem. For example, it will be difficult for you to make time
appointments with those of us on the new system. This is because 4:00
will mean something different to those of us on the new system.

If you are interested in moving to the new system, I invite you to
me. Begin by taking your watch off for three days and living without
it. Then start working on the 72 minute Hour.
