another great jos thread
"There is a VERY intelligent group of people on this forum."
Really? I get the sense that most(but not all) on this forum are bitter, at best B programmers working on very uninteresting applications.
PLUS: Albert D. Kallal on the benifits of brevity!

I think it's typical of any forum full of insecure people that at least one person makes the remark "We're all highly intelligent" in some form or another at least once a month.
It happens on ?jos, it happened on ?off, it happens here, it happens on Blah...

This one is different - because it's us

I used to spend a lot of time on another forum where there really were a lot of smart and really funny people.
The one time this happened there, MENSA came up it turned into a 300-post thread where everyone came up with these stories about how MENSA tried to recruit them and they turned them down.
So it can always be worse.

I was very honored to be recruited by Mensa. But at the last moment I pointed out a spelling mistake in their literature. It should be an 'M' instead of a 'D' I said. They said no, it's right. I thought for a long time...and ah, it hit me. I turned them down of course.

And yes, you could add a loud alarm when the scale is turned off, or when it's first turned on, to indicate to store staff that somebody's resetting the scale, better check that zero is zero.
