Quattuorvigintal Time


[Blatsy: "Hey, Dr. Marloon, what are you working on?" Marloon: "Trying to sort out time, Blatsy. Although this time I've got it with Quattuorvigintal Time!"] [Blatsy: "Quatro... Quatturo... Quaou--" Marloon: "Don't hurt yourself. But yes. You see it always rubbed me the wrong way that everything in the metric system is divisible by 10, but the main metric unit of time - the second - isa mess! 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day! So..."] [Marloon: "I've unified it all! Everything is now in multiples of the number with the most factors: 24! I've changed the durations, and viola! 24 seconds in a minute! 24 minutes in an hour! And since distances are defined by time, those would change too."] [Blatsy: "But won't that make the math harder?" Marloon: "Not after I convert all numbers into base 24."]
