and the chucklefucks who made it so that OCTOber is the tenth month
that's because julius and augustus added july and august or some shit isn't it? yeah well their butts are as good as kicked
@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
