David Cameron Says Brits Should Be Taught Imperial Measures

digitalPhant0m Re:FP? (942 comments)

It's worth recalling that that whole "man on the moon" endeavour, and other space missions, have gotten messed up (some more than others) because of different engineering teams using US Standard AND Metric units. Had they just used Metric like ALMOST EVERYONE ELSE, there'd be less hassle.

Because everyone else has been so successful with going to the moon?

David Cameron Says Brits Should Be Taught Imperial Measures

digitalPhant0m Re:FP? (942 comments)

I'm sure that those other 42 countries made it to the moon far sooner than the U.S. did. Oh wait.

I'm quite happy being incapable of using the metric system but being a part of an extremely capable and pioneering country. Thanks.

How Does Tesla Build a Supercharger Charging Site?

digitalPhant0m Clearly I missed something. (190 comments)

If you thought it was a quick process to build a Supercharger station, you were clearly wrong.

Was someone suggesting anything to the contrary or did you just needed an excuse for the post?

digitalPhant0m digitalPhant0m writes  |  about 6 months ago

digitalPhant0m (1424687) writes "A story at the L.A. Times details how Verizon Wireless has jumped onto the recently popular bandwagon of pushing the envelop (or downright abusing it) when it comes to tracking users without their knowledge.
I'm sure this qualifies as news, however at the rate of privacy abuse revelations the last few years, it's hardly shocking."
