Changing Our Horrible Calendar


It’s broken. It’s really broken. The fact that we don’t have a consistent pattern to the number of days in a month, the fact that February is stupidly short and a number of other problems make it just a horrible calendar. I’d like to see some reforms done and frankly, this one is the best.

Of course it won’t happen, mind you. It’s like the metric system. It’s much easier, makes much more sense and just generally makes life easier, but we in the USA refuse to convert to it because it’s “confusing” and “too hard” and we’re “too lazy” and “too stupid”. I’m sure eventually it will happen, but as with the metric system, it’s going to take a long, long time.
