Why should we bow to assimilation? We dare to be different. As an architect, I PREFER imperial over metric.

Metric is nothing more than lazy math.

Seriously, I lost so many posts after "The Great Purge of 2012" that I have to get my spam on far more than I ever did before.

Which would be MUCH easier if MikeC would turn Tapatalk back on, DAMNIT!

Also, Bob Dole.
