    The lb / (in/S^2) kind. How much more confusing can the English system of engineering units be???

    Try explaining to someone that the standard unit of mass in this country is a slug. Good times follow.


    Ugh.

    Ah, the slug. Pounds without the acceleration.

    I'll stick with kilograms, and let the Imperial people slug it out amongst themselves.

    Metric is a good thing! Now, excuse me, as I have a show to watch at 9.25 o'clock [​IMG]
