Next time I’ll go for a drink on a pub I’ll ask for a 0.568 L instead of a pint.

Too many Americans are standing against Common Core math programs, it's not that hard to learn. I feel it's easier to do the common core methods as it provides the ground for the fractional visualizations in the circles like the clock. Clock is basically dozenal and the planet system is based on that also. Imaging if the dozenal were the default math base, will people ever want to switch to decimal, most likely not. I just keep placing more balls on the rows, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple. 4/3, 5/3, 2, 7/3, 8/3, 3. Last fiddled with by tuckerkao on 20200811 at 07:17

The math is only independent of the base if you count like the screenshots shown below. Last fiddled with by tuckerkao on 20200811 at 07:38

The width of the row is the base, I keep stack the balls, so the values of all the fractions are displayed accordingly, see the 1st screenshot below. Last fiddled with by tuckerkao on 20200811 at 08:49

I want to be able to play "Windows Hearts" with only 3 players. In the dozenal version of the Windows Hearts, there will be 2 more cards for each suit(spade, hearts, diamond, club), so 5 dozens total cards. Playable by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 players at the best.

So now we are getting down to the real reason you like base12: to play silly card game. That sounds like the best reason yet that you have presented so far. So let's do it.
