foot tools

  [vote for,

torque is measured in foot pounds so why use your hands. foot tools could also be used in conjuntion with hand tools to stave off autommation for one more year.

       "Clay-kicking – also known as ‘working on the cross’ – had been developed in the UK for driving tunnels through clay-based geology for sewer, road and railway works... It used leg power to dig rather than hand tools such as picks or mattocks..."

       // torque is measured in foot pounds //   

       Only in very primitive societies. Advanced civilizations use the SI unit oif torque, which is the Newton-metre.

       Would you walk the torque?

       If your foot pounds the ground, the answer is yes.

       Why on Earth is a toque measured in foot pounds? Is this a Newfie thing?   

       More of a sad anachronism, actually.

       It could also be measured in bushel-chains or peck-furlongs I suppose.

       For true historical validity, cubit-talents (length and weight from Pharonic Egypt) would be appropriate.

       These non-metric measurements are not benevolent. Torque of the devil.

       Don't get all up tight about it, [IT] - it's just a wind-up.

       Ah, now you spring that on me. It’s not as if upon finding an item of stationary stationery I can’t resist imparting a driving pulse onto a resonant mechanically coupled system formed from the edge of a table. As a rule.

       You seem to have got the measure of the problem, then; the answer is now ver nier.
