Unfortunately it uses 64 secs per minute and 64 minutes per hour, but keeps 24 hrs per day. So unless we slow down the earth's rotational speed, we will have to have shorter seconds. The new "binary second" or "bicend"(!) would need to be (60 x 60) / (64 x 64) = only 88% the duration of our existing seconds.
So instead of counting "One Scaglietti, Two Scaglietti" we will have to go "One Scagliette, Two Scagliette". :green:
ps: Your 0-100 time will increase by 12%
I could not have said it better myself! Cheers!
