Yep, guess I am just a stupid old man......Point is, that its hard to change what you have learned over the years, no matter how weird it is......They say that the English language is one of the hardest to learn because there are so many weird idiosyncrasies to it, but we seem to have it down pat. For a foreigner whos language has a set pattern to it, it is hell.

Another thing I have noticed about this subject...It started as a debate on 1/10s of inches and evolved into a debate on the metric system because, I guess on the base 10 aspect of it.........Not the same thing guys......
