Out of interest, anyone know what threads are used on the latest US F35 jets?
The usual sort of green flying suit I think.

When I was an apprentice working on the V boats in the shipyard the bow section equipment and fastenings were metric, the missile section was imperial due to the Trident system being American then the aft end and propulsion systems were back to metric.

. Why are our kids are forced to learn the times table up to 12 when we have been on a base 10 system since the 70's
The universe works to base 12 in case you'd not noticed and dumbing it down to ten will never work until we have ten months in a year and ten hours in a day. Until then our kids will have to be able to count to twelve.

Yes and no one has ever tried to pay in pounds shillings and pence
And yes you have to count to twelve and beyond but the twelve times table?
1x12=12
2x12= 1 day
