After watching this, I am going to adopt a perennial calendar based on International Fixed Calendar. I will start converting all my systems to this date system to bring coherence, monotonicity and boringness into the system. In other word, simplicity.
- Each year will contain 13 months.
- Each year contains 4 quarters with 13 weeks each.
- Year counting is based on Halocene calendar i.e it adds 10000 years to Gregorian Calendar.
- Each year contains unassociated New Year day and Leap Year Day based on Gregorian Calendar. Both will be holidays. They fall in month zero. They have no week days. They lie between Saturday and Sunday.
- Each year, each month, each quarter start on same day.
- Abbreviation SC (Scientific Calendar) will be used.
- Representation similar to current convention.
- Year can be shortened to three digits. 12018 -> 018.
- New Year Day will be represented as first day of month zero. Leap Year Day will be the second day.
Naming is not a big deal. We should find another solution if following rules are found to have problems.
- Each month can be named based on card. So first month will be Ace, second will be two and so on
- Each quarter can be named after suits of cards.
- Weekdays can be named after seven colors of light. ROYGBIV.
- Month zero can be called Joker🃏 month.
- No need to change calendar every-year. Large amount of time and money saved.
- Equal length quarters.
- More scientific names.
- Easily calculable weekday.
- 13 months = more economic activities = more salary 😉.
- Dates are perennial.
- Religious causes. Not my problem 🤷.
- One Quarter = 13 weeks = 3.25 months. A little problematic but not as much as Gregorian.
- Birthdays and other dates need to be recalculated.
- Adoption requires changes and will take time.
