Flipping the Bases

Here's what I'm saying about base 10 vs. base 8 or 16. When you split 1 in base 10 it becomes .5. Split that and you get .25, then .125 and so on and so forth.

In base 8 if you were to split 1, it becomes .4 then .2,then .1.

You see the beauty and cleanliness of it? We only use base 10 cuz we have 10 fingers.

Same can be said of the stupid base 12 that we use for our time system. Should be a base 8 or 16 there too. If you do the math through, you can find several combinations in each base 8 or 16 that would entail seconds being roughly equal to the current standard second. Of course, our concept of hours would change somewhat. Wonder how much different our lives would be with a different time system. How long would a sit com go for? And that "hour lunch meeting"?
