THIS Will BLOW your Mind. The stupid need not apply. This is a thread for smart people only.
If there were 8 days in a week.

You would have 1 extra day off work.

5/7 = 71.43% of a 7 day week.
5/8 = 62.50% of a 8 day week.

You would work 8.93% less.
71.43 - 62.50 = 8.93

There would be 45.625 weeks in a year.
365/8 = 45.625

There would be an extra 5 or 6 days (depending on a leap year) in every year.
100/8 = 12.5
5 days * 12.5 = 62.5 (see 42.625).
6 days * 12.5 = 75.0.

---

So after all this math, (I hope you understood it). I ask you, who decided 7 days a week?

365/7 = 52.14285714285714
365/8 = 45.625 (and the decimal place is in perfect 8th's, a multiple of .125)

And for those concerned about leap year. lets assume 365.25

365.25 / 8 = 45.62625
365.25 / 7 = 52.17857142857143

So I suggest an 8 day week, with a 3 day weekend. This will solve all of societies ill's. We work too hard, too much, and 2 days separation between work and rest is not enough. 3 days out of 8 is a much more reasonable request for human beings.

As soon as we all slow down, and take a deep breath, and focus on things other than work and money, we will find that 1 extra day will make all the difference.

Any questions?

Quoting: the poop

I am trying to convey that the pure mathematics of a 7 day week do not justify it. The answer can be found in an 8 day week. All of societies problems could be solved if everyone would adhere to such a policy, and updated our calendars.

The French Revolution attempted something similar, but on a metric type base 10 system. It did not catch on.

8 days a week will catch on!

God created the world in 6 days. One day is for rest. Liberals have perverted society by giving people TWO days rest.

Idle hands are the devil's plaything.

Work 6 days, worship God the seventh. Three days rest just give people more time to fornicate, do drugs, and give in to temptation.

Quoting: Seth801

You are suggesting a 6 day work week, out of 8 days.

6/8 = .75, (75% of the week).

I think that is unreasonable. You cannot LIVE if you are working 75% of the time. Let alone if you are working 71% of the time. A more reasonable period of work would be 62.5%.

I think it was originally mapped from solstice to solstice, ending up with a 7 day week...if you added another day, it would not work out.

And besides that what would you call the 8th day ? "Addonday"

Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30680209

Sure, in fact that sounds excellent. I was thinking about what to call the 8th day.

So now we have.

1) Monday
2) Tuesday
3) Wednesday
4) Thursday
5) Friday
6) Saturday
7) Sunday

I like it.

And as I proved with math, it DOES work out. It's a 7 day week that does not work out. Think about it, really think about it. There are never an even number of weeks in the year. So just what makes my 8 day week not work out? Mathematically please.

I thought after all this change this planet will embrace NOW time system that is cyclical kind of time for those live in 4 or 5 dimensions in higher class planet Earth. Although 3D planet still here during grace period.

So your proposal still can apply in grace period.

9 is not mathematically concise enough. Here is an example.

You can never be more than halfway into the forest, before you are heading out.

And yes, we work too hard. We do not keep enough time open for friends, family, relationships. 1 extra day a week would accomplish that.

Because that is what YOU Would do if you had an extra day. Apparently your mind believes that if you had more time, you would fornicate, do drugs and give into temptation. There's no WAY you would spend your extra time living, enjoying life, being with your friends and family. No no, you would fornicate and do drugs and give into temptations.

I do not even think that way, and I feel sorry for those who do. My time is spent learning and growing and becoming more involved in my life and the lives of my friends and family.
