The Plague of Time (Solved)

Greetings, fellow fleshbags. Straight from shadow web, I bring you the greatest realization that I have ever had in my entire life. For too long I've been trying to convert time to explain when the meeting in a RL hour is. I've tried 'pictodays', 'nanodays', but then I sound like a nerd. I tried 'microweeks' but that sounded too much like microwave, which made me hungry. I've tried using fractions and it got horrifying fast. I've tried saying 'later' and then sending an OOC tell with the GMT. But I had a revelation, and I will share it with all of you.

Aetolian days are 4 (four) hours long. Not IRL hours. No, Aetolian days are *canonly* 4 (four) Aetolian hours long. This just (blissfully) overlaps precisely with RL hours. How do I know, you might ask? How do I get my hair to do that? Is it difficult being this awesome? I'll tell you, I have no idea, and yes, respectively.

How long does focus take, if you are trans survival? Ask any Aetolian combatant and they'll immediately reply "how did you get into my safehouse/afk spot?" A solid third will shrug and say 'Sunder', which isn't technically a number. And then the rest will tell you (eventually) 5 (five) seconds. Now, for those of you watching at home, try to keep up. It also takes five (5) seconds. *In real life* (IRL).

Pause for effect.

That means that there is a 1:1 ratio between seconds, which means (because minutes are defined as "a period of time equal to sixty seconds or a sixtieth of an hour") - there is a 1:1 ratio between a second and a minute.

PAUSE FOR EFFECT.

That means an Aetolian HOUR is equal to A REAL LIFE HOUR.

Thank you for coming to my TozTalk.

    I don't see what's so bad about saying it's 1/2880 of a day!

    Lunchtime doubly so.

    No, I'm here for this. Thank you for the PSA @Toz let's spread the word
  • Bruh, what is a 'pictoday'? The prefix you're angling for is 'pico', as in 10^-12. 'nano' being 10^-9, you're going to convince me you were like, "Yo Wjoltyr, the meeting is in 41 million 666 thousand and 667 nanodays." !? 

    ILU.

    It was the only way I could get @Eliadon to actually read my lunch invitation. I will not be doing this trick again.

    yeah why is formatting on the forums suddenly inserting linebreaks everywhere?
