We are considering instigating a ten day week.
One advantage of being here is that we have greater control of our own rhythms – we are not being bombarded with cues from the outside world telling us it is time to DO things.
So, you know all those things which you feel you have to do each week? What if you had ten days within which to do them, rather than seven?
After writing the above, I thought I better check out who else has had this idea. I see a ten day week was used by the Chinese from around 2000 BC – why do the Chinese have to do everything first? It was also used in Ancient Egypt and, of course, Revolutionary France. So I think we are in good company.

I have to say my first thoughts were of Revolutionary France. Please don’t introduce all the other trappings of The Terror at the same time!
Don’t be silly. Where on earth near to here could I find a reactionary autocrat worthy of the guillotine?
