You realize the Canadian jet running out of fuel that you used as an example was the result of their changing to the metric system. Which makes the opposite point that you are trying to make.
Agree 100%. The massacre was horrible, this asshole sharing this video and his opinion on it was horrible. However that doesn’t mean we flat out ban people from voicing their opinions, even when they’re horrible opinions.
Because it sets a precedent for more restriction in the future. You can’t block this video without it meaning something going forward - nothing exists in a vacuum.
When I was in junior high and high school, I had terrible grades. It was a combination of bullying, laziness on my part, and asshole teachers. My parents were so fed up with me because they tried EVERYTHING to get my grades up. My dad kept telling me how I’d grow up to be a loser, and the girl at the top of my class…
I don’t care what units you’re using, a pilot should be able to descend without putting the plane into the ground.
I remember having a company commander who thought that a meter was about the length of a heel-to-toe footstep. He was a West Point grad.
The right to free speech doesn’t need to be invoked to protect speech everybody agrees with.
Not like in America, where we are consistent in our measurements.
technically, the root cause of all these errors was human error and not related to any system of measurement.
I’m just glad this wasn’t a story about her hawking a MLM like I though it was going to be.
Screw that tyrannical metric system. I only use Freedom Units. Things are referenced in beer bottles, bald eagles, and AR-15's for weight and linear measurements.
So nothing in the last 15 years and one of them (Air Canada) was a direct result of switching to metric
Honestly some of these examples are pretty shitty for the headline argument, as they aren’t really a conflict due to having two separate measurement systems. The tortoise story is an issue of idiots not doing a proper job and making assumptions on a unitless number, which would be problematic even within the same…
Or five massive screw-ups that wouldn’t have happened if companies had the right processes in place. QA is the real issue here.
The liberty to be able to say what you want without government interference.
Davey was my best and only friend from k-6th grade and really gave credence to the final words in the movie Stand By Me, “I never had any friends later on like I had when I was 12.” Rather, I am 43 now and I still have never found a friend quite like him later in life. Sadly I will never get to tell him face to face…

This is why we are so worried. I could care less if they opened up in Brooklyn, just don't start slipping. The scary thing to me is private equity. Whataburger has one of the highest per store gross revenue of all the large fast food chains. They also have more staff and higher food costs. My worry is they are going…
Is it going to walk my pizza to my door? No? Then kindly piss off with that robot noise. The delivery kid gets the tip because he hustles it up to my pad, otherwise I’d just get in the car to go there and get it myself.
That was my first thought too. Ovens in the vehicles so it bakes during delivery. It’s the next logical step.
