For the record, this is actually an issued patent.  https://www.google.com/patents/US8379489

 

That means the inventor has exclusivity for about 20 years.

I don't know why he picked 36. 12 is also divisible by 2, 3, and 4. 60 is divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6!

When I was in college I invented the metric week. 10 days long. I figured a 3 day weekend and 7 day work week would give me 30% off a week instead of the current 28.6%.

What remains at issue is that our days and years do not match. The Earth rotates 365.256 times relative to the Sun per orbit. Any new system will have to account for this offset

Why not just skip all of the pseudo-binary-based proposals and go straight binary? A simple example: a system of volumetric units. One tablespoon x2= 1 ounce x2 = 1 dounce x2= 1 tounce x2 = 1 hup x2= 1 cup x2= 1 pint x2= 1 quart x2= 1 hallon x2= 1 gallon etc. The English system finally gets its revenge over metrification!

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
