Dude, Isaac! Not two months ago I was talking with a friend about a global universal time; where you listening in?

To take the idea a bit further: Metric time.
1 second * 10 = 1 deca-second *10 = ....= 1 metric hour.
10 metric hours = 1 metric day
and do on.

Currently the second is based off an atomic clock, so the clock would have to change. Calendar changing is not unheard of; thought now we would have nearly 70 years of software systems to phase out. Not a small feet.
