So, I see Senmut has posted over a thousand times. I figured he deserves something for being the only member on this list to have achieved such a milestone. Or is that metronome?

Anyhow, since I have nothing to give but kudos, I'll offer those. Any one else have a suggestion about what our "Man With a Thousand Posts" should be granted? Cool

I've given him the title "Persona Specialitas" which means as much as "special person" or "special friend" as well as "person with special qualities" or "specialist". Smile

Yup.
And that IS a MILEstone, Zaz. NOT a kilometerstone, or whatever! Wink

Battlestar Concordance:

KILOMETERS Measure of distance used by the Terrans, and also on Earth. Crewman Krebbs reported to Commandant Leiter that the Lunar Seven ship was 20,0000 kilometers from the destroyer (GE).

Heh heh. I always loved the metric references in BSG. Metrons/ metres, kilometres. Yes, so very futuristic . . . Very Happy

30 years ago they were so far ahead of time. They knew even the Americans would eventually start using (kilo)meters in the future! Very Happy Shocked

Ooh, you like to live dangerously, Marcel. Do you run with the bulls, as well as waving red flags in front of their faces? Wink

DEATH to metric, and all other French inventions!

(Except Cognac! Okay? And, well, maybe Burgundy.)

You do know the Dutch first colonized the US, saw nothing in this country and traded New Amsterdam with the English for Surinam that had all the spices (which were as good as gold in those days)? They renamed New Amsterdam into New York and the rest is history. BUT if we hadn't, you'd all be speaking Dutch and be using to the metric system over there. Very Happy

(just ranting some common facts here... Wink)

No, common misconceptions. But repeated often enough to have the patina of truth, sadly.
Yes, I know full well about the Dutch, New Amsterdam (from which we get the name of Wall Street, BTW), et al. The Dutch should have statyed here. Fewer tropical diseases in Manhattan.

They must know something we still don't! Smile

"Think Metric" in the US was one of those late 70s fads that went the way of the Pet Rock and other forgettable 70s things (of which we don't lump Galactica into!). I can remember how on Saturday mornings, NBC would run a series of short animated spots on the virtues of the Metric System that were basically their counterpart to the popular "Schoolhouse Rock" segments on ABC Saturday morning. There was "Meter Man" (athletic jock), "Litre Man" (annoying goof with big moustache), "Super Celsius" (dark shades) and "Wonder Gram" (a slightly rotund Wonder Woman knockoff). Needless to say, they didn't catch on and the kids weren't humming those songs the way they still do "Conjunction Junction, What's Your Function?"

"...hookin' up words and phrases and clauses..."
Uhh....sorry. Lost my mind there, just for a moment. Cool
Anyway, well said, EP. We did not then, nor now, need any of...that!
One might also notice that the baddies on Terra used metric.
The BADDIES! Twisted Evil
