    Well it's a lot simpler to convert from litres to cubic centimetres than fluid ounces to cubic inches.

    You don't weigh 100. Your mass may be 100 but your weight is 980.

    Suddenly 220 doesn't sound so bad. Though it does make me feel more than a little sluggish.

    If they thought about it and made the meter slightly smaller, we could be looking at a gravitational constant of 10.0 m/s/s. That would have made things dirt simple.

    Back in the US. Had a good time. Flew WOW both ways from BWI. Not a bad airline at all.

    Good to hear WOW works, BWI is the close airport and I want to do Kef sometime.

    As to the subject, Knob Creek Single Barrel Small Batch, because its the only bourbon in the cabinet here as I do hurricanes (yes, plural) recovery. Can't bring myself to pour cola over it (my norm) so one cube, in a sippy cup.
