# More fig figs for weight? (Read 770 times)

More Cowbell!

Eric, how about allowing for one more significant figure in the weight category? Most scales measure to the tenth of a pound these days. [Editorial Note: The subject was supposed to say sig figs. Eric, how about letting the person who starts a thread modify the subject. You know, for idiots like me that catn' tpye.] Thanks, Jeff

When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

Hi Jeff, I didn't mean to ignore your request in the other thread. It's not too hard to do. I'll try to squeeze it in for the next release. eric

I thought maybe Jeff weighed himself in Fig Newtons. That's a novel concept for a method of measurement. The brits have their stones, maybe we could have Fig Newtons. I wonder how many Fig Newtons it would take to weigh what I do.... k

Yeah, I'd get a huge balance scale. I could put me one one side of the scale, and put a bunch of fig newtons on the other side until it balances. Only a) that would be a lot of fig newtons and b) I'd keep eating them because, as someone likes to say around here, I loves me some fig newtons! (Could I also use rasberry and apple newtons? Loves them too!)
