Also, I'm sending a Terminator back to take out Pope Gregory

So if anyone has ever wondered what, as a mad scientist, my fiendish and dastardly plan to meddle in Things what man was Man was Not Meant To Meddle In is, it's this:

I'm going to embed gigantic freaking rockets in the ground and fire them so as to speed up the orbit of the Earth and make the year 365 days long EXACTLY, thus eliminating the need for freaking leap years and for me to ever have to deal with people screwing up their freaking time coordinates because they FORGOT TO ACCOUNT FOR THEM! *eye-twitch*

I'm considering going all the way to a 360-day year, which would let us regularlize the calendar to 12 30-day months, but then I'd also have to adjust the moon's orbit or I know it would just bug me that they didn't line up. Feel free to chime in if you feel strongly about this issue.
