OK, so you come on over to my kitchen and use your new rules of thumb to rewrite all my much-beloved family recipes. I don't have a .4 cc spoon, so make sure you adjust all the measurements and test all the recipes so that the family won't barf and the amounts can be easily measured. I remember when I was a kid, the metric system was the coming thing... until everybody realized our sizable investment in butter-measuring devices. Uh, lemme see,, .454 kilos... uhh.. oh never mind.

Computers will not be perfected until they can compute how much more than the estimate the job will cost.

Working...
