"We really don't like using numbers that were invented before 1980."

My thread title is a wonderful quote Uncle Cecil used in one of his columns, but I lack the Google-fu to track it down properly. Does anybody remember the column in which this quote was used?

Any chance you are misremembering? You used a variation of that quote:

in a thread 11 years ago and attributed it to “one recent Math major”.

I thought I was quoting a Straight Dope column back then, too.

You make me wonder if I can dig up my old ASVAB scores. . . Hrm. . .


hmmm … interesting. I really don’t like to use anything but the metric system, haha
