... Maybe they got confused with their silly metric system and meant 17 feet and not 17 meters
HA ! Silly Metric system, he said ; about Par for the level of intelligence for
the guy who just wrote That !!
Why would anyone WANT to use a base 10 system , (metric) ; when the
base 12 system that Americans use, is SOOoo much Harder ?
Yes dyyylan ; i'm being cynical ; just thought i'd clarify.
You don't build much stuff & use a tape-measure, do Ya dyyylan ?
* Without using a calculator, What is 3/10th of a foot, or 30% ?
**Now , to calculate the same for a Meter ; just move the decimal point over
and times it by 3.
Silly Metric system , my Ass !!
