Conceptually, no issue.
Practically, here is a list of a few things off the top of my head that would need to be "converted"..
Every dial on every manual machine tool as well as every mechanical indicator, caliper & standard.
Every pipe, fitting, flange, nut & bolt.
Every road sign that ...
| Political Talk|| Lafayette man shot dead during an alleged home invasion - reverendotis on 8/25/14 at 8:26 am|
Just happened last night.
There is a high probability that a homeowner on California St. in Lafayette is black. A burglar on California St. is probably black also. No guarantees on either, just speculation based on knowing this area.
If the circumstances as reported turn out to be true, how ...

Personally, I'm not worried at all about global warming or cooling.
I am terrified, however, of plate tectonics. Have you seen the models? In a mere 250 million years, top scientists predict we'll be back to one big continent.
Mexico is going to be in my back yard. I don't want Mexicans i...

Ask him what he thought "forsaking all others" meant when he took his vows.
Then tell him to honor those vows, quit being a cheater, a liar and a crappy father.
If he doesn't quit doing it, I would quit hanging around with him. If his wife can't trust him, you damn sure can't....

I don't need to, their father's X or Y chromosome already dictated their gender to them.

I am friends with a codgerly old bastard who happens to own a supply house in a nearby town. I will call him Mr. H to conceal his identity.
Many years ago, Mr. H's store was burglarized several times. He was able to determine that they were breaking in by unscrewing a sheet of tin from the wall...

Pop worked at MSY back then. He wasn't on shift when it happened but went in later that day. Consensus in the shop was that the pilot was nuts to take off into that weather.
All systems on the ground back then were vacuum tube computers. After this, he and several co-workers developed an appli...
