I can also recommend our Giant Bomb clan. Friendly atmosphere and we've always gotten the max clan chest.

Hercules

3/5

Mostly watched it because I'm Norwegian and was curious since 2 of the characters are played by well known Norwegian actors, rare for a Hollywood movie. Found it surprisingly decent. Nothing amazing, but the fight scenes are competently done, and the story is not the complete garbage I was expecting from Brett Ratner as a director.

Your base 10 counter argument is both true and completely meaningless. Yes, there is no inherent benefit to the actual metric units themselves. You could have used imperial base units in a metric style system, but this is not how people use imperial units. Road distances are given in miles, not kilofeet. The strength of the metric system comes from the fact that people actually use such a system with base units and modifiers in powers of 10. Not a series of completely different units for each quantity with seemingly random conversion factors.

Also the notion that having more divisors is better makes little sense. The whole point is that we as humans use a decimal (base 10) number system, so having conversions which are multiples of 10 makes things as simple as possible. Converting 411 feet to yards is more difficult than converting 411 centimeters to meters even though the answer to the first question is a whole number. Dividing 411 by 3 takes conscious effort. Moving the period two places to the left does not.

Also saying a jet crashed because someone screwed up the conversion from imperial to metric is a very good argument for switching to metric. If the entire world used one system of measurements, such conversions would not be necessary.

I could go on....

I used it fairly often, though not as much lately after I got in the same camp as Drew and bought a Sous Vide machine, which effectively has one built in. A chicken breast cooked sous vide at 60 degrees Celcius (140 Fahrenheit) is just crazy moist and juicy compared to the ususal overcooked stringy stuff many make when they just guesstimate in a hot pan. Similarly with steak and fish. In the case of chicken, even just finishing it in at low temp in the oven with a meat thermometer to around 65 degrees Celcius (149 Fahrenheit) can make a huge difference.

Was afraid this was going to be an incoherent rant, but the point is a fairly legitimate one. There is certainly room for improvement in terms of making the content easy to locate. It's not a huge problem for me, but I probably would go back and (re)watch a lot more of the old videos, if they were easier to find.

This is virtually impossible to answer. Truth is they're all pretty great phones like you said, so there is no "best phone". It all comes down to personal preference. It doesn't make sense for me to say, "you should buy this one", because I have no clue, compared to you, what you actually want. I'd go hunt down some good reviews, fokus on the relative strengths and drawbacks of each, and then figure out which of them fits you best. I know its a cop out answer, but I also think it happens to be the right one.
