Taylor Rewrites Time, Crams 85 Minutes In An Hour

Sure, you might wish that there were more hours in the day to get things done. But what if there were more minutes in every hour? That’s what Taylor Precision Products, maker of measuring devices, from thermometers to scales, has apparently accomplished with one of their timers. It puts at least 85 minutes in every hour, for maximum productivity. It’s either that, or a hilarious typo.

The company’s webpage states “Over 150 years of precision measurement”. Obviously for some nefarious reason the information was well hidden from the public until now that there are apparently at least 85 minutes in an hour…..

Maybe it’s part of a secret conspiracy to bring back decimal time, where every day has ten hours, every hour has one hundred minutes, and every minute has one hundred seconds. Yeah, it didn’t make a lot of sense during the French Revolution either.
