    I guess the HotPot is where the lover ends up, when she does a “slice n dice” job on him.

    @algernon. If you were falling off the roof, and you missed grabbing the gutter by one inch, it would count. —–Lots.

    Marum don’t argue with me I’m a surveyor. Try 0.3 metres divided by 0.3048 or multiplied by 3.28084 then multiply that by 12 and you’ll get the answer.

    @DnT. It appears that a young couple did just that. They were dioing the “horizontal mambo” on top of a highrise and fell off. (credit Darwin Awards)

    Marum for all intensive purposes 30cm=12″ but have a look at t a tape measure and you’ll see that 30cm looks suspiciously like a little more than 11 3/4″. QED

    I found my lover was not true,
    So I made him into stew,
    I put him in the pot,
    With onions and the lot,
    And put him on the dinner menu.

    @Marum: The smileys only appear if you use the correct names and leave a space on either side, otherwise the engine doesn’t know it’s supposed to generate any.
    I think the aghast you’re trying is called eek, I’ll give it a go: 😮
    I’ll try a few more: :roll: 💡 :mrgreen: 😆

    Sorry, I don’t have a link to the site where I got the smiley instructions all those years ago but anyone who cares to google something like “html smileys” will probably find them. The really fancy ones probably don’t work on this site, though.

    @szk. I have known engineers to have stand up fights over .0005 of an inch. (half a thousandth). Pretty important when you are designing internal combustion engines etc. .0005 can make them “external combustion” engines.

    @Marum
    That is ~127um. Pretty damn tiny although there are a few places where it would make a difference

    But for the purposes of a joke, there is no reason for pettiness
