Charles is there because he can’t wait to be Queen.
Table for two please
Metric money. Metric weight. Metric length/distance. Metric temp.
How come no metric time?
I am sure you know who will explain it.
Metric time is the measure of time intervals using the metric system. The modern SI system defines the second as the base unit of time, and forms multiples and submultiples with metric prefixes such as kiloseconds and milliseconds.
Other units of time - minute, hour and day – are accepted for use with SI but are not part of it.
Metric time is a measure of time intervals, while decimal time is a means of recording time of day.
Did you know that our way of counting time is from the ancient Sumerians? They used a sexagesimal, (base 60) mathematical framework. We still use their system, not just in time, but also in measuring angles and geographic coordinates.
60 is an interesting number. It’s the lowest number that can be divided evenly by every number from 1 to 6, which greatly simplifies working with fractions. In math terms, 60 is known as a “superior highly composite number.” The number 12 is also a SHCN.
The reason we still use so many base 60 numbers… aliens! (hahaha)
Does anyone know if there’s something like a bikini wax for ear hair?
Asking for a friend.
Thanks, but oh hell no. I’ll just… that is, my friend will have to just keep looking like a Wookie.
who decided that 60 mins was an hor thaqt an hour is… etc
The ancient Sumerians.
Thx will look that 1 up
60 is a good number for time because the fractions are so easy…
1/2 hour is 30 minutes
1/3 hour is 20 minutes
1/4 hour is 15 minutes
1/5 hour is 12 minutes
1/6 hour is 10 minutes
All of these fractions work out to whole numbers.
They certainly advanced the human race during their time. The whole counting system originated from them using the 12 sections on the fingers of the hand. Genius really considering you carry your hands around with you all the time, the first ancient calculator
So we just disregard the thumb, no most important part of the hand.
Yes the hands are brilliant when i want to know how many days in a month i use the knuckles to tell me if the month falls on top of knuckle 31 days if it falls between then 30 apart from feb try it
They used the thumb as the counting instrument though I wouldn’t know anything about that having paws
