Angela: Do you have a picture of a pipette? (general)

posted by bibleprobe(R) Homepage, Mass., 08.24.2015

I don't think any of our readers have a clue of what a 'pipette' is. I certainly do not. Never even heard of it. A meter is about 3 feet. I'd much rather have a working knowledge of what 1 foot is since I walk on one (12 inches).

Now let's get down to the 'nitty gritty'. What on God's green earth is a gram?

Is a pipette about the same weight as a standard metal paperclip, or not?

What is weird about a meter is that it is said to be the length of an object located somewhere in Paris. How on God's green earth can people envision an object 'hidden somewhere' in Paris to forsake a foot which most American's know exactly what it is? I certainly know what a foot is. So does my cobbler.

If you went to a Catholic School in the 1950's & 60's like many of us did - you most likely have had a 12 inch (1 foot) ruler slapped across your hand by a Nun or 2. So a foot (12 inches) is no mystery to Catholic 'baby boomers'. A meter is tough for me to get an exact though.

Getting down to basics. Maybe we should blame America's 'rejection' of the metric system to the Catholic School Nuns. Bless their hearts for the discipline they instilled in us by showing us exactly what a 12 inch/1 foot ruler is. I am not kidding. We need more discipline in our schools today.
