Time

Our current system of keeping time is just plain stupid. we need to make a new way to keep time. like many in the past have suggested is that the whole world runs on a 24 hour clock. we could even make it a 100hour clock with 100mins to an hour and 100seconds to a min we would just have to change our perception of time. anyways back to the whole world on the 24 hour clock. we would of start it at latitude 0 and move on every 15 degrees is +1 hour (aww but what is really 0 degrees where do we start? yet anther mistake by man trying to conquer what we cant by just making up stuff). yes it would be strange to have this system we would have to get used to having midnight during the day in some places and another thing that would have to change is that we use the 24hour clock aka military time so we dont have this stupid 12 hour crap we have now, this will also prevent confusion when telling time with the world 24 hour clock. if anyone has another suggestions of a new system of time please chime in. also the 24hour world clock would get rid of daylight savings crap. then after we fix that we need to work on our dam calendar and maybe fix how many days are in a year instead having leap years and crap. but i still say time is something we cant put a number on since time is relative, but we can do our best and at least fix the mistakes others have made in the past.

RE: Time

if you die, you wouldn't need to give a shit anymore about time...


here in europe though we usually use the 24 hour clock.
we don't have 'a.m.' and 'p.m.'
