    Excellent. This gets bonus points for the Serenity references and the raptor on a hoverboard. Those things are wicked fast, you know.

    maybe he just meant flaccid. Then again, usually the bigger it is flaccid, the smaller it is erect.

    Farenheit is a gay scale, metric ftw

    you just double it and add 30

    Bob & Doug FTW Bob We should go metric. Doug Why?! Bob Then we could drink a beer every kilometre, not every mile. Doug So? Bob So… kilometres are shorter than miles! Doug AH! So we drink more beers. Bob Exactly. What’s the conversion factor to go from miles to kilos? Doug Uh. Double it, and add thirty. Bob No, get out! That’s temperature. Doug So, it’s still metric. Bob Okay. So how many beers could we have had, professor Doug, assuming we drank twelve each? Doug Um. Hey! Are you implying one of us, possibly me, drank more than… Read more »

    metric is dumb

    the French made it up.

    Its a FAIL. kph is compared to m/s. Miles per second? Are they serious?

    nos4raaa2

    lol

    @nos4raaa2: It’s a typo. I’m pretty sure he meant mph. I’m also guessing you already knew that. Why do I bother commenting then? To show how silly I can be. I read it as meters per second.
