...jeez. I wonder what bizarre answers you'd have to give on an aptitude test to get "Metric System Advocate" as your recommended career?

I dunno, in some videos I've seen, they don't seem that upset at their jobs....

That Barney icon to represent Psychological Torture is classic. I felt that way every time I watched Barney with my Godson.

Incidentally, in response to the "Metric System Advocate", James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal says:

The metric system, lest we forget, was used by both Nazi Germany and Communist Russia, and it remains the dominant regime of measurement throughout the axis of evil and in various other terror-sponsoring states, not to mention in France. It's absolutely outrageous that our tax dollars are paying to promote metric propaganda. Granted, it's only two part-time guys, and their efforts seem desultory to say the least, but still, there's a principle at stake here.

Wow, that is the most crackpot quote I've read in AGES. Did Taranto suffer a concussion or something before writing that?

Hey, it is entirely possible that Taranto is being sarcastic. Or facetious, if you're MENSA. Wow, there're two ways to say things, like "Metric System Advocates are silly" or what Taranto said.





Kane gets flustered that he didn't get to do something silly this week. Ho hum.

Heh. Point taken. It's just all too easy to visualize somebody getting really, really agitated about something idiotic like that, especially lately when EVERYTHING'S a cause for someone...

See below what exactly? And what type of pay does this AOL job dish out? Cuz I can't say it doesn't sound a bit intriguing.
