There was a discussion in another thread a while ago. It's a european thing we like long sentences and lots of commas.

Telling someone they can't come who hasn't asked, is a bit like telling someone who has moved you don't want to play with them.

Reminds me of the time when one of our groups centralized global accounting operations in Europe, and suddenly we were giving clients $400k credits instead of $400 in the US

Of course I don't know why the software couldn't format the fields so that there would be no possible way to put in 400,00 when you mean 400.00. Like, isn't it elementary to have separate dollars and cents (or equivalent currency) fields?

I use Rankine for temperatures.

I had always thought that "Celsius" and "centigrade" were interchangeable terms, but it turns out that "centigrade" was officially abandoned in favor of "Celsius" in 1948. I think it's interesting that "centigrade" continues to be used/known--I learned it back in elementary school in the '70s.

You can have my Fahrenheit when you pry from my cold (i.e. less than 98.6-degree body temperature), dead hands.
