Frequently Asked Questions

Why are all your measurements in centimetres, grams and degrees Celsius instead of inches, pounds and degrees Fahrenheit?

Basically, that's the way most of the world measure things. If there's sufficient demand, The Git might be persuaded to create a special Americanised version of these documents. Hint: the electronic soil thermometer The Git uses here in the Third World has a switch on the back so it can read in either Celsius, or Fahrenheit. Similarly, his tape measures all have dual scales -- metric and Imperial.

Are you an idiot?
