Happy December 12!

12According to an article I read today in the TIMES, “Sunday is the twelfth day of the twelfth month, which makes it a 12/12 day, which makes this the perfect weekend to get yourself a copy of the Duodecimal Bulletin, Celebrator of all things Twelvish.”

This group, along with several mathematician friends of mine, argue that the world would be so much more divisor, multiplier and everything friendly if our counting systems was built around twelves rather than tens.  To find out why, read this entertaining and informative article by Robert Krulwich, a science writer for a variety of publications.
