Fluid Time


[Blatsy: "Hey, Dr. Marloon, what are you working on?" Marloon: "It's my greatest challenge yet. Creating _Fluid Time_!"] [Blatsy: "Fluid time?" Marloon: "Yes! You see, humans built an imprecise means of measuring time, using the sun. Because the Earth is tilted, unless you're at the equator, sunrise and sunset are at _different times_!"] [Marloon: "But with _Fluid Time_ sunrise and sunset are _always 6AM and 6PM! The duration of an _hour_ just expands and compresses throughout the year, with the most extreme fluctuations at either pole."] [Blatsy: "Wouldn't that just cause more confusion?" Marloon: "Presently, but give it a few fluid hours, and it'll make sense."]"]
