Blink Clock

Last Updated: September 11, 2020

The blink clock is a sort-of-joke sort-of-not idea I had in February 2019. It's basically a weird take on metric time. In SI, a day is 86,400 seconds. In the blink system, one blink is 1/100,100th of a day, or 0.864 seconds.

In this system, a minute is 100 blinks. An hour is 10 minutes. A day is 10 hours. A week is 10 days. An "Era" is 100 weeks, 1000 days, or a little over two and a half years.

As you can see, it is very decimalized.

Weeks are counted as numbered inside of an era, much like months within a year. The first era began on January 1st, 1970, because of course.
