whoever it is that decided that 12am comes after 11pm i'm gonna kick their butt
ditto for whoever decided we should use 12hr instead of 24hr time
@lynnesbian The roman emperor Augustus wanted the month named after him to be 31 days, (because the one named after Iulius was also 31), so he had to take a day from somewhere, which was the last month of the year, February.
@lynnesbian Not to belabour the point, but the roman year started in March. Which is why the last months of the year, (September, ... December) made sense initially, because they were the 7th through 10th, and not the 9th through 12th.
@lynnesbian I feel like all months should be 28 days because of the menstrual cycle and the moon
@lynnesbian and also then they're a nice even 4 weeks.
@lynnesbian A better question is, why not 13 months * 28 days (364) with a year day and a leap day every 4 years? then we could line up the lunar cycle and the days of the week and the days of the month would be aligned too.
as for time, why not metric time? 1000 minutes in a day (and 20 "hours" at every 50 minutes)?
@lynnesbian I appreciate you
