|I have an utter inability to comprehend quantities of time that are measured in improper units. When somebody says, "My baby is 56 weeks old," I can't even begin to figure out what that means in normal people terms. 56 weeks? If there are usually 4 weeks in a month, that means there are like ... 12 months in a year ... 12 divided by 4 ... 24 hours in a day ... I give up.
I saw a commercial on TV the other day that talked about a 96 hour sale. What? How many weeks is that? I know there are 24 hours in a day, but 96 isn't an obvious product of 24 (to me anyway). I get 24. I get 48. But after that, I start to lose it.
Most financial loans are measured in months. My 5-year car loan says I'm on month 33. My 30-year mortgage says I'm on month 345. What does that mean? How many years is that? #technology
