When I first read about the movement to have six 28-hour days in a week instead of seven 24-hour days, I immediately considered it hokey at best. (The "psychic hotline" motif of the web site doesn't help. It looks ready to sell you some healing crystals.) But the more I read and thought about it, the smarter it seemed. Obviously such a radical change will never happen, but it's nice to think about. Perhaps future generations living in space will keep this clock?
