wxboy: HotIgneous Intruder: NIXON YOU DOLT!!!!!: HotIgneous Intruder: NIXON YOU DOLT!!!!!: HotIgneous Intruder: NeoCortex42: I just turned on the Discovery Channel feed. Took me a moment to realize what the display was showing:
46,112 ft 14.094 m

I get that Europe likes putting decimals in for commas in big numbers, but don't mix notation in a single display. Bugs the hell out of me.

That's 14 point zero nine four miles high.

No, it's meters.

Thanks!
I had no idea there were 3,277 feet per meter.

There certainly aren't that many feet per mile.

They're using the European convention, the decimal is where we would normally put a comma.

The figures represent feet and miles in altitude above sea level.
Stop. Think. Act.

58,000 ft is NOT nearly 18 miles. It's less than 11.


Well, it's pretty obvious he's NOT 18.5 meters high.
