    I prefer the same author’s essay on time zones, which genuinely convinced me that the current system of time zones is broadly a good idea (although we could perhaps make some tweaks around the edges to improve the system).

      local “midnight” should be the middle of the local night

      What is the middle of a local night? Nights are variable length, you know.

        Do you dispute that every length has a midpoint?

        And, since when do matters of taste require citations?

        I really liked the Kodak regular calendar idea

          I just want nine day weeks

            I’m afraid to ask why

            1. 1

              6 day week, 3 day weekend – it’d work well for a system where not everybody took their weekend at exactly the same time.

              Also it would lend a completely new meaning to the hit Beatles song “eight days a week”

            2. 2

              Since 365 x 4 + 1 = 1461 = 3 x 487 I always thought that 3 day weeks with 487 week years made the most sense.
