Leapless Years


[Blatsy: "Hey, Dr. Marloon, what are you working on?" Marloon: "Fixing the calendar with the Leapless Year!"] [Blatsy: "The Leapless Year?" Marloon: "Yes! You see, Leap Years have too many rules around them! Any year divisible by 4, unless it's divisible by 100, unless it's divisible by 400... All of this to account for the fact that the Earth takes 365.24 days to travel around the Sun."] [Marloon: "But with the Leapless Year, you never need to worry or calculate again! Instead of adding 24 hours _some_ years, we add 5.67 hours _every_ year!"] [Blatsy: "Wouldn't that cause daylight to shift every year and throw off everyone's circadian rhythms?" Marloon: "Oh, only 3 out of every 4 years. But at least it would be predictable."]
