I'm not sure how I found this topic, I normally only browse the posts since last visit page, so I'm not sure how I got to this page, maybe through another post.

i whas known as Wolf on the swedish BBS.
then i got internet and on every freaking irc server, homepage that whas taken.

then a few friends nicknamed me The Big Bad Wolf along with the song "no one is afraid of the big bad wolf" coz when i whas 14yr's old i whas kinda sarcastic and sometimes realy rude.
then i got the nick [[[TBBW]]] coz it looked cool... after going on diffrent ircd's and homepages i ditched the [] coz it takes to long time to type.
and it finaly became TbbW.
i'm still called wolf on some places doh or even TB but that's oldies calling me that Tongue

EDIT: it whas the homepages that made me ditch the [ ] and also ircnet that had a shorter nicklen.

Quote from: "cha0s"
excellent counterpoint, moneo


Highly irrelevant; soda manufacturers can and do create 355ml cans and 600ml bottles.

How's this for a good arguement FOR the metric system: I'm not sure if any of you have ever had to do fluid mechanics, but here's how it works: Every single imperial calculation has a "password" in front of it -- some completely arbitrary number to convert the random numbers to something that resembles each other. In metric? Nothing does. Want to know the mass of a liquid based on it's specific gravity? In Imperial, break out your lookup tables. In metric, specific gravity * 1000 kg/m^3(The number of kilograms of water in a square meter). From Reynolds Number to Bernoullis equation, you've got some different largely arbitrary obstacle.

Another major issue is that the Imperial system doesn't account for the local gravity. This is a major issue; a pound of force in New Orleans isn't a pound of force in Denver Colorado, because the local gravity is different.

Yes, America put people on the moon using their primative system of non-coherent weights and measures. Remember though, that Japan is now the technological powerhouse it is under the Metric system.

Anyway, If you want to talk about waste, every single auto shop in America and around the world needs two sets of tools; two different kinds of nuts; two different kinds of bolts; two completely different sets of equipment and infastructure for the two types of vehicles: American ones, and the ones from everywhere else. I need to spend extra time heading to a store to buy the metric fittings which would function just fine for 5.5billion out of the 5.8 billion on earth, except for the Americans. The Americans are costing industry literally billions constantly.

The worst part is that you already use metric for some things: Nobody complains about using Volts, Amps, and Ohms. Threaten to take away their furlongs per fortnight, however, or their scores per league, and they get huffy...

Anyway, on to the thread topic.


SJ Zero started out as "Sir Jason" when I first entered a chat room. I grew up a bit, and didn't like it anymore, so I changed it to SJ(Two letter names were the style at the time). Later on, I decided to slap the 'Zero' on the end because I thought it looked cool. I've been through a lot with this name, so I don't feel like changing it.

Why is it American's can't spell correctly either?

They spell litre as liter, metre as meter, etc. I don't know of anywhere else in the world who spells words wrong.

Some people can't eventalk properly.

"Nucular weapons"
I remember Bush saying that. Either W or his old man...

Mine was issued to me by my school. I have to use it for getting into the school's system, so I have become accustomed to it and I can type it fast. So, it's used for nearly all of my screen names (either that or radiumv (or radiumvinteractive))

with the way litre/liter is pronounced here in the US, (lee-ter) litre would not make sense, that would be more like lee-tray. there is a sound inbetween the t sound and the r sound, so we stick the e inbetween the two. This seems natural to me just cuz its how I grew up. Personally I don't care if its rearranged, just don't make me add letters to stuff, colour is just plain stupid. Wink

Yeah, that's the same reason "" or "rr" (rolling sound) aren't easy for Americans.  They aren't used in English, so there's no reason for us to know them. It's also why people mispronounce "tortilla" as tor-"till"-a (with l sounds)

Unless you guys actually say 'nifeh' :lol:

Thats more likely because they don't know that 'll' has the sound it has... I mean, its the same sound that you have in "you" (the y...)

And the is just an n with the y from 'you' afterwards... so its not like you don't have the sounds, it's just from not knowing that (english) people don't say them right.

the e makes the I "say its name" lol, ai doesnt really make the I sound that I know of. ntm, there are plenty of words with a silent e at the end. Silent letters are not the problem, its putting sounds in where there is no letter representing them.

I have never said toriLLa, its tort-EE-a. Reminds me of people who pronounce gyros "Jy-rows" instead of "your-o's"  :roll:
