That wouldn't improve your times. It'd just change em.

i think that reasoning is wrong, if an hour is still the same amount of time but you break it down into 100 instead of 60 than what was 5 minutes in a 60 minute hour would be about 8 or 9 minutes in a 100 minutes hour, same goes for the second sin a minutes but each minute would be even less time now, itstoomuch math for me to bother, any engineers wanna figure it out?

I don't know who it was, but I DO know that that is not a METRIC clock. It'* a BASE 100 clock.

And...NERV is right. Following that (incorrect) line of reasoning, you would want to use a BASE 50 clock with 50 "minutes" to the hour and 50 "seconds" to the minute. That way, your 13.2 real time could look like an 11.0 time.

Why am I doing this anyway?!??
