    My friend and I made some cool programs demonstrating Metric Time for a science fair project. If you want to check it out, go to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/metrictime) or our website (bit.ly/metrictime10). Please leave a comment here or on the Facebook page if you have any questions or advice for us.
    FYI, Metric Time is a way of measuring time that has 10 hours in a day, 100 minutes in an hour, and 100 seconds in a minute.
    Thanks!

    This was attempted by France a long time ago - to decimalise time. It failed.



    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    the attempt to decimalize time by the french failed because according to their new system, there were 10 months in a year, 3 weeks in a month and 10 days in a week. this way, people had to work for 8 days and got 1 day off. also, "sunday" wasn't there anymore which was a problem for the christians.

    our metric time system only changes the number of hours, minutes and seconds in a day.

    It probably won't fly, but I think it was a pretty good science fair project.
