Re: [spoon-discuss] Thoughts toward a universal Nomic calendar

If I may interrupt your dialog for a moment...

There was a reason why Dave chose the ten-day week for B Nomic, and it was precisely to avoid the sort of regularity you seem to be aiming for. The idea was that different times of week are better for different people to vote - some people might have many weekend commitments, so to be fair, the vote should fall at different times every nweek.

I personally don't like the idea of a 14-day nweek; I'd much prefer seven if you want it to match "real time", but frankly, I like the ten. Or at least, I liked the ten, back when nweeks were fairly reliably 10 days... we just need to redesign things so that we don't need to stop game time every three days.

As for discordianism... I prefer to avoid mainstream chaos. This is B Nomic, where chaos radiates outward from us like Flies from a Rotting Whale Corpse that's just been Blown Up Rather Nastily. We certainly don't need to bring the chaos of others into this mess.

Not only would She not mind, but having them not match up seems like a very
Erisian thing to do.

also the five days of the Discordian week, the Apostle Holidays, and the
Season Holidays which we could steal, which all have great names.


Personally, I'm still leaning toward the traditional B Nomic seasons. Or, since they're only one nweek long under our new protosystem, they don't need
names at all.
