As a software developer and recipient of many a multiple-hour tech support
call having nothing to do with the product being supported<g>, I beg to
differ. Some people will argue with anyone or anything that doesnt agree
with their assessment of the result, especially if it has the potential to
shift guilt/blame/whatever somewhere else.
Speaking of which, I argue with my computer all the time. Im rarely right,
but that doesnt stop me from arguing with it<g>. OTOH, I almost never argue
with my mom.
As a gearhead, Id like to see race times to the .0000000000001 so we could
more accurately compare car and track performance, do car tweaking for fun,
compare this years winners vs. those of previous years, assess the effect
of weather conditions etc. However, none of that has anything to do with
what Pinewood offers to/teaches a Scout.
