It's been the baseline since the survey. Why is it wrong now?
The survey was wrong. The baseline was wrong. The wrong datum was selected. Don't make me go in to a rant. You will regret it, don't forget it.
Drugs aren't necessarily a deal killer for that, but introduce a prostitution element, don't bother to reapply.
Even if you're innocent.
Yeah I got some angst.
Horseshit. I've seen this crap before. Baseline road will not be renamed because you screwed up.
Baseline Road is 2.53 miles straight line distance from my house.
You promised a rant. That wasn't a rant.
I never claimed it was.
I provided the required abuse to trigger the rant reaction. You have yet to deliver said rant. You are now in rant arrears.
Wow. Baseline Road is 1.14 straight-line miles from my house. (With a small lake, too, so maybe you should go around.)
If Sac Arrow is my neighbor, should I celebrate or move?
If you have issues with one of the datum you can throw that measurement away and keep the rest of the data, right?
Isn't that how they prove global warming?
I was clowning with the plural and singular from of a noun.
How does that relate to climate change mythology?
If I actually saw 'datum' in a technical report I'm reviewing, it would get changed to 'data point."
Isn't it odd how townships, sections and quarters follow rigid grids whereas county lines do not. At least here.
For what reason? Dumbing it down for the audience?
I like saying Datas when I'm talking... mentioned that in another thread. I think stuffs like that is funny and makes it obvious if people aren't listening. Another fun thing is accenting syllables in words like Inventory or Fixed the Australian way instead of the US way. Excel (the MS program) I usually pronounce the German way.
'Datum' while correct is used so infrequently that for all intents and purposes it has passed from common usage. It's generally accepted that data has no singular form.
Maybe I had two many beer tonight
Datum is the correct singular form of that noun, but because society is too stupid to get it right there is general acceptance that it no longer exists?
I guess that is one way of looking at it. It's considered archaic.
