    The left is a cult with rigidly-enforced rules against dissent.

    David Horowitz said it best, IMO.



    And, BTW, we have no "friends on the left".

    Inches ≠ metric.

    1/2 inch = .5 inch.

    One and a half inches = 1.5 inch, and three and a half inches = 3.5 inches.



    Since you don't know the difference between a decimal and the metric system...

    “Decimal” and “Fraction” are two different representations for rational numbers. Fractions are expressed as a division of two numbers or one number over another. The number in the top is called the numerator, and the number in the bottom is called the denominator. The denominator should be a non-zero integer, while the numerator can be any integer.

    A decimal number has two parts separated by a decimal point. Some fractions have finite decimal number representation while some have not. For example, when we consider the decimal representation of 1/3, it is an infinite decimal, i.e. .333333 ... Number 3 repeats forever. These kinds of decimals are called recurring decimals.

    However, fractions like 1/2 have a finite number representation, which is .5

    Whatever, Legina.

    How many inches is 5' 9 11/16"?


    Good luck! I'll be checking your work.

    Now look, you can write it all down and do it that way, or use a calculator if you know the formula, but in the real world you just measure that length and make a mark.

    And nobody talks inches in decimals ever in the real world.

    When the spacecraft approached Mars, they needed an “orbital insertion” burn and that was handled by the spacecraft’s own on-board software which used SI units of Newton-seconds. That would have caused the craft to use only about 22% as much thrust as it needed. The error was somewhat counteracted by another error in the conversion from feet to meters…which is speculated to be why the error was not noticed in ground testing.

    So the spacecraft ended up using only about 70% of the thrust it needed…and although its fate is uncertain - it must have hit the atmosphere very hard - and either burned up or bounced off of Mars’ atmosphere. Either way, contact was lost.

    Ultimately, this does NOT appear to have been NASA’s fault. The “Systems Interface Standards” (SIS) documents that NASA provided to Lockheed Martin specified the use of metric/SI units - but Lockheed used US customary units instead. However there is an argument to be made that this kind of problem should have been detected when the various parts of the system were integrated prior to launch - and that is probably NASA’s fault.

    Ultimately, NASA accepted responsibility…I don’t think they should have done so.

    In all matters of science and engineering, SI units are the standard - and even if Lockheed hadn’t properly read the SIS document - they should have assumed SI units anyway.

    That sounds like something Mason would enjoy, Tom.

    My understanding is that the Proposal was fractions of a penny. Something the average Retail Investor would never notice. The High Speed Traders would carry the brunt of the tax.

    No. My claim is that the Capitalists (both Dem and Rep) are flooding the Country with Third World Labor to keep Wages Low.
    Like the Plantation Owner that pits the White Sharecropper against the Black Sharecropper.
    In this case, pitting the American Working Class against a Third World Working Class.

    Modern day slavery so the white, woke do not have to actually work.
    Consider the Oyster.

    C-4 is just angry playdoh.
