And I'm guessing you don't get laid much. Sorry just stumbled on this thread and had to laugh. I mean, geeze guys, if your start brokering in pedantry, at least be right. CJT was quite accurate in his nerdy foray into units, and didn't really need Rich's further intellectual masturbation trying to correct that which didn't need it.
So on a practical note, Rich, unless you know of any air compressors for filling automobile tires in places with a different gravitational constant than what we have here on earth, there is a rather well defined relationship between a pound as a unit of force and the corresponding mass. But yes, we're all impressed you know the difference. And if you go down to 3 significant figures and start waxing about differences in that constant based on elevation or something, I'll have to ask you to give yourself a wedgie and flush your own head in the toilet.
