Alien English

What makes matters worse is that here in the US (The country that invented English), we can't get it straight. Try to hold a conversation with a group of folks from Maine, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michiganís UP and San Francisco Bay. Even though they are all from the US, they would not do well in communicating.

BIG Smile

Well... We have the same thing even here in a country as small as Sweden. Lots of different dialects, some of which I certainly struggle with...

Does that mean you have to watch a team like the Detroit Lions embarrass themselves playing Football on national TV? I feel sorry for you

Stew, evidently you aren't paying attention. Trolle said the Lions are playing the Vikings. Although I thought the Vikings were from Minnesota, not Scandinavia (Is that near Green Bay?)

As a transplanted Lions fan, isn't it funny that no Central Division team wants to play them on Thanksgiving (for that matter - any team would rather play the Cowboys lately ). Even though the Packers have just played them again, I know they don't want to.

And YES - in December the Packer fans feel they are too close to Scandivavia.

A couple of GM acronyms:
PCR - Process Change Request
PTR - Production Trial Run

Red Face OOPS

You're right db, I guess I'm still confused about Rick Carlisle.
Here's one more for the abbreviations.
I/O Error = Idiot Operator
Just had an operator running tryout on a part due tomorrow (prove out this morning and run tonight - JIT ).
He's done and loads for the run. Cycles the press for the first part and get this.
1) 2 pieces of sheet metal loaded,
2) runs it over tonnage!

Results = Broken ring, snapped in 2! This is the same guy that just finished running the tryout! He didn't have to change the set up at all. Almost sounds like it was done on purpose.
