A less radical improvement would be to alternate more consistently between 30 and 31 day months, except February, which would have 29 days in non-leap years and 30 in leap years.

I like where you have to think but it's comedic in its presentation.

Brilliantly funny and makes good sense!

(Agree with Imp4....need to go Metric in the US)

actually MOST calenders have 14 months, the ones I;ve seen, only 13 months are "large print", and when you get to december, there is usually a small printed January of next year at the bottom. I get calenders from Banks.

Makes sense in many ways except for the intermission day. It still exists, things still happen, needs to be documented somehow (Intermission day 2021, but in a leap year you would have intermission day 1 and intermission day 2, and would also be a 4 day weekend).

Does it make a little too much sense? Why have we not adopted this? Thanks for posting that video!
