Don't let these two guys ANYWHERE near your Jeep and they can't install their shit.
Sorry, but they don't need to
Letting the opponent captures a piece without any tradeoff is a huge mistake, not small mistake. So I would say for top-notch players, it's rare for one side to have majority of pieces that easily.
The unit promotion mechanism also makes no pieces really "weak". Unlike internatioal chess, pawns don't need to reach the bottom to upgrade. Walking 2/3 of the board will do.
I always liked the Shogi variant of chess. Other than a slightly larger board (9x9), and a few more pieces (20), you also have unit promotions, and deployment of captured pieces. The deployment of captured pieces especially keeps the late game from becoming simplified.
This just turns a draw game into an endless game. Since captured pieces are redeployed, there will be no "true" late game if both players are skilled enough and make no big mistakes.

Lucky that my home Hong Kong has abolished that since long ago.
You advocate a
( ) overly simplistic
approach to calendar reform. Your idea will not work. Here is why:
( ) having months of different lengths is irritating
( ) having one or two days per year which are part of no month is stupid
Specifically, your plan fails to account for:
( ) humans
( ) rational hatred for arbitrary change
( ) unpopularity of weird new month and day names
and the following philosophical objections may also apply:
( ) nobody is about to renumber every event in history
( ) good luck trying to move the Fourth of July
(x) the history of calendar reform is horrifically complicated and no amount of further calendar reform can make it simpler
Furthermore, this is what I think about you:
( ) sorry, but I don't think it would work
( ) this is a stupid idea, and you're a stupid person for suggesting it
