The Null Device

A chap calling himself The Human Calculator has a plan for the betterment of humanity: replacing the calendar with a 13-month "Human Calendar" with 28 days per month. Once it is in place, the improvements in efficiency will be great: weeks and months will be finally synchronised, with paychecks and holidays falling on predictable dates, and schedules and calculations will be a lot simpler. He has tried to sell this idea to the authorities who wield influence over the way we keep track of time (i.e., Hallmark and Microsoft, and not popes and emperors), but they haven't returned his calls. Perhaps he should talk to Swatch, and hope to get it accepted as an extension of Swatch Internet Time (then again; maybe it's not daft enough an idea for that).
