The strong force stays roughly constant at growing distances.
You don't mean linear right? So the force is as strong a million miles away as it is just a metre away? If so, that's quite..... odd.
I'm really tired of stupid date math. Bad enough it's already five different bases across six different numbers, with three of those bases dynamic based on four of the others.
Love that quote.
This is why I've always advocated for two times. One based on what you want (constant intervals of time), and one based on the position of the sun as a percentage or similar. We can go to town with the complexity of the latter, but the former should be kept as simple as possible like you say.
