Community Ideology Composition
« on: 2013 09 17, 17:44:21 »
I had an idea of a forum game which was that we write law proposals and vote for them to compose our own, fictive community law/ideology.

I don't know exactly how that would work but I guess we could propose some laws on that.

I guess it would work if we number all proposals and people then type the numbers they vote for or against. To make it looks more pro I think we should wrap all the proposals in cool quotation marks as well. If you suggest something, it's assumed you vote for it unless otherwise specified.

Maybe we should put it in a Google document.

Ok I'll start:
Quote
1: Official System of Measurement is the International System of Units
Our state hereby declares its official system of measurement to be the International System of Units, also known as SI. All non-SI units should be replaced with SI-units as quickly as possible, and non-SI units may not be used in any education without it requiring students to simultaneously use the SI-units for the same tasks.

Let's rid the world of all the backwards, primitive, antiscientific, reactionary units! They belong to the time before 1.578 gigaseconds ago!

well i created a document here in case we want to move there: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UHLgiM5TSS7YkocV19dl45TyY56T5OCj9B6-vrdyi9s/edit?usp=sharing

one interesting concept i've always thought about was the day/night/year version of time keeping. maybe we should just define everything in seconds,  we can count time in total seconds since the start (unix time). for example, now would be 1379449362 and instead of saying the time is 13:40, for 13 minutes and 40 seconds since start of the day, we can say 49.3k, meaning 49.3 kiloseconds. (it rolls over when it reaches 1000 kiloseconds just like the year does. removes timezones, leap years, leap seconds, and all that crap. instead of saying <month>, an equivalent would be so write 9m for 9 megaseconds (a megasecond is roughly a 12 days). same for the years. i don't think it would be much of a loss to not know that the earth has revolved 2000+ times around the sun since the birth of jesus christ or something

Ok, let's officially move to the document. Much easier. Posting updates in here is welcome too though.

The second law confuses me a bit, I guess it's not finished?
