89 degrees thats nearly a right angle.
... if you mean celcius then im surprised.


No I translated it to that antiquated unit of measurement they use in America.
Fahrenheit! You know like silly measurements like feet, inches, ponds and stones.
They have yet to learn what metric is. It's what all the cool things are made to, Like LEGO. :D

Hey, just because the country doesn't use metric, doesn't mean all of us don't.

Well, hardly any of us do, but I do.

Oh, it won't happen. We're too damn stubborn. Just like we keep driving on the right side of the road.

Haha, i still remember when the NASA lost a multi million dollar satellite some years ago because someone entered trajectory data in feet rather than using the metric system as he was supposed to be...

There's an awesome Robin Williams concert in which he brings that up a few times. It's pretty hilarious.

Yeah but at least they didn't try and build a rocket with one stage in
metric and one in imperial. :) Like they did at woomera. Then they had
to have 2 sets of tools to assemble it. Plus other problems. Go the Bluestreak.
