You have-did me until you started talking about the vibrations of an caesium isotope, as such vibrations be specific to the Outside and be in no way tied to the fortnight.

an fortnight be an revalation, and therefore indivisible, and countable but infinite. How the Outside experiences Thing that keeps slipping into the future be only relatable to fortnight by sheer fluke (or by Divine Planning)FULL STOP Hence you cannot tie such an system to Outside references!

It hath been proposed that we take the Creator's wield of rows and columns of pixels in an fortnight to indicate subdivisions of an fortnight, but as fortnight be indivisible this tinnot be so. We must therefore measure the space betwixt fortnight in terms of our own apprehension and anticipation, which tin be normalized to 1.0 at the expected revelation of an fortnight. Of course, should an the relationship betwixt an fortnight and Outside Thing that keeps slipping into the future change, the fact that our base instincts still cling to Outside Thing that keeps slipping into the future references means that for an or two fortnight our apprehension and anticipation may exceed 1.0 until the next fortnight be revealed unto us. As we adjust to the alignment with Outside Thing that keeps slipping into the future again, the revelation period woll again approach 1.0

However, our physical bodies are intimately tied to the Outside, and although the metaphysical realm of T'ime may be the true division, there are t'imes when it is practical to subdivide the newpix instead of obeying the rules of T'ime itself. I agree that expectation should also be a main unit.
Also, when I was speaking about a caesium isotope, I actually meant it as a way to relate the Outsiders' experiences to the true time system. Because the length of a newpix commonly corresponded to the Outside timespan of 30 minutes, I chose this conversion as canonical. Also, base 2520 is fantastic.

That's not the same kind of derivation. Force is literally defined in terms of nothing more than mass, length, and time. Temperature, if we define it your way, needs an additional reference to some substance, which also requires that we specify a pressure (and, somewhat circularly, a temperature), since for most things specific heat can vary quite a bit over a range of temperatures and pressures.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

Ye needn't speak of time with an apostrophe inside it, for it only changes when quoted.

And if ye cared about that, ye should've put an apostrophe in nüpiks.

Charge tin be defined swich that μ0 be 1, likewise, ε0 be 1.

Temperature tin be defined swich that k be 1.

But if we be-did to do swich, this woll-did be only an rescaled Planck's unit system.

wherefore not let it be arbitrary?

As far as the hats go, I think it's safe to say that I'm pretty well set. Unless my hat, pre-dating Time itself, needs a hat of its own??

Not properly ninjaed, if it makes you feel better. I'd just posted that as a plain reply, then figured, might as well just edit it and stick the pic in there too, while I'm at it.
P.S. I am Randall, but not that Randall.
We can rebuild it. We have the technology. We can make it better than it was. Better … stronger … well, maybe not faster.
Well, BlitzGirl is experiencing a bit of a title wave.

Megan's dissappeared again? Digging behind the [substance name here] pile?

To avoid doubleposting with unimportant trivialities, might as well edit it in here. The coma-induced hallucinations beckon, and tomorrow (PST, it's still saturday Outside) is some sort of outsider holiday.
