Whatever it's origins and faults I have an emotional/personal-historical/seasonal relationship with the calender as is. One of my small pleasures in life is writing the date in my journal (month, day, year..which is the ONLY appropriate way fyi...).
You could change it but I'd never listen!! No! I'd move into a cabin in the woods, buy a shotgun and leave your abomination-calender-society behind....
I could still have wi-fi though, right?
Or, with less expenditure of fuel, we could keep the earth in the same orbit about the sun, but spin up the rotation of the earth about its axis, so that the earth day goes about three times faster than it does now, and again we'd have 1000 days in a year, organized into ten calendar months, and if we moved the moon out a little bit, we could have ten lunar months in a year, with the full moon coming on the first day of every calendar month. As a bonus, a further-out moon means less extreme tides!
Rather than offend some god or emperor by removing two months, I suggest we scrap the existing names of the months altogether. The first month of the year could be called Ericone, the second Erictwo, then Ericthree and so on.
By the way, with this redesigned Gregorian calendar, I think July 4, the 185th day of the year on non-leap years, would fall on a Tuesday.
You go fuck yourself.
This calendar dude should talk to the people who want to implement a more computer-compliant "internet time code" so computer will be able to keep time correctly.
THAT'd be a fun conversation with no solutions.
If there are seven days in a week, and you begin your month on a Sunday, the Fridays will fall on the 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th. Never on a 19th.
@18 & @21: Take note of that, alarmists.
Super New Year sounds pretty great, but not great enough to starve to death for.
