QED

From a recent chat between Brendan of I Hate Linux and myself…

Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
anyone who needs this machine should just learn to except variance
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micrometer_%28device%29
Brendan says:
I remember those things
Brendan says:
ahh the fun of high school AP physics
Brendan says:
we even had a digital one then… although it was easy to throw off
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
factully wrong
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
digits only go 1-10
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
but a micrometer is much smaller than 1
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
QED
Brendan says:
BUT…
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
B.U.T.,QED!
Brendan says:
you can use multiple digits… and even a strange concept called a ‘decimal point’, also known as a ‘decimal separator’: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimal_separator
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
again, wrong
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
the symbol for a micrometre is µ
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
not a digit
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
beacuse the Greeks didn’t have digits
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
You can’t say 7.µ
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
again, QED
Brendan says:
different units
Dan(www.tdaxp.com) says:
Obama’s going to change that
Brendan says:
lol
