oh, that’s what i meant.
they should of standardized base12 as our counting system which could of then been (somewhat) applied to imperial system instead of using base10 as the counting system then building a new measuring system around that.
so, yes… we’d be counting everything in base 12.
we just got a little unlucky by being born with 10 fingers (instead of 12) because other than that, there’s simply no benefit to counting in tens when compared to other bases.
that said, you can count base 12 on your fingers… arguably better than tens…
put your palms facing you… use your thumb on one hand to count the finger divisions (there are 12 of them)… on your other hand, you can keep track of how many 12s you’ve done…
so, you can count to 100 on your fingers (which is the equivalent amount as 144 in base10)…
with base 10 on our fingers, you can only count to 10
you see it?
