    As a rule, I don’t comment on my personal mental state. Some people would think I’m plumb crazy. Now that we’ve got that squared away…

    OK, I give up.  What makes this tape measure so dreamy?

    10ths of inches. Metric-like.

  7. Jason Rudert

    What MLH said. Ten inches to the foot and ten tenths to the inch.

    Most dirt work is done in tenths. Tenths of feet and tenths of tenths. Civil engineers are weird.

  9. Jason Rudert

    Yeah, the one we had at work came with our transit. But we always work in the usual eighths and sixteenths. So it’s like: point nine five feet is…ten point eight inches, plus…half of a tenth, which is one point two…oh point six, so eleven point four. 11-3/8!
    But then you’re looking at this through a transit, and for some reason even though the other guy is moving the thing down, the tape keeps reading more and more…oh.

  10. Randy Webster

    You might have noticed that feet and inches don’t multiply so well.  Decimals work fine.

  11. Jason Rudert

    I know, right?

    Anyway you divide it, 10 is good number.
