I’ve always wondered about this, although I don’t really use the Metric System.
The whole concept would be 100 seconds in a minute, 100 minutes in an hour, 10 hours in a day. Actually, I guess there would be millidays and so on.
The new Metric second would be .864 of a normal second.
The new Metric minute would be 1 minute and 26.4 seconds (in normal time).
The new Metric hour would be 2 hours and 24 minutes long (in normal time).
Noon would be 5 o’clock. Midnight would be 0 or maybe 10 O’clock.
You’d have times like 8:75 which would be a quarter till nine…roughly 10 pm. 3:50 would be half past 3.
Nine to Fivers would work 3:75 to 7:08.
I realize this is a silly concept and pointless, but since they don’t teach kids to read the big hand and little hand anymore and it’s all gone digital, why not?
Has anyone else ever come up with this idea or am I just crazy?
