So does it measure anything

It meant Special Student Ruler. For any purchase of the ruler, BO DI will throw in an Engrish dictionary as well for a good measure.

Give some people an inch and they think they’re a ruler.

This is certainly a special ruler. I remember rulers that could be used for firing rubber bands, making noises on desks, squashing insects, and even stirring paint. Somehow, Bo Di is using special technology to prevent it from doing anything other than measure and study.

If you burning the product it will make noising. If you can’t polite, please aloof.

God Almighty! It is only a ruler. I thought the instructions were for how to operate a Linear Accelerator.

I sent the instructions to our Special Ruler. She was not amused.

@DnT. Also, it can not be used by the nuns, to belt you across the fingers.

But! That’s not a foot!

Aww. You wouldn’t knock me back for a quarter of an inch would you?

@Algermon. Yes. Your tolerance for crap-english instructions.

What are you measuring with that ruler, young man?! Don’t blaspheme or you’ll burn. Call the Paterfamilias, this is a matter needing special attention!

“Give some people an inch and they think they’re a ruler.”

Give them 12 inches, and they will think you are a God.

The instructions just don’t measure up.

It’s no surprise that China has a problem with rulers.

Don’t use this in the summer, or you bend the fabrics of the universe, causing the definition of the word “ruler” to turn into an unreadable mess in all dictionaries.

Listen, children. You have less than three years to escape the powerful evil influence of this ruler, so I suggest you get started right now.

Pater Familias, I am honored and grateful that you have invited me to your home on the wedding day of your daughter….

‘Say hello to my little friend’ Suavely said the son of the ‘paterfamilias’, as he begins to slowly draw away from his chest the ‘special’ ruler, admiring as the teacher’s face of satisfaction over others’ boredom and misery slowly turned into a panicked stare, his Bo Di shaking and his definition quickly distorting…

My special Bo Di ruler needs attention…

One look, that’s all I want, at the Chinese-English dictionary these folks use. “Paterfamilias”, honestly.

I realize it’s a perfectly cromulent word, but “infrequently used” — is that not a concept in China?

In my time the teachers used rulers to spank kids on the Bo Di.
