    Better to ask forgiveness than permission.

    It’s a bulb changer for lights that are too high to reach. I have one for a twelve foot ceiling light.

    Interesting that that link is for an “11 foot” item and it’s Home Depot Canada. Isn’t Canada on the metric system?

    Thanks to the influence from our American neighbours, we Canadians have a very strange hybrid system. Deli meat is sold by (100) grams, but general meat and vegetables are listed in both pounds (large font size) and kilograms (much smaller font size).

    When do we hear from all those teachers who wish they had a crop of Caulfields in their classrooms? “He’s so great! I don’t mind that he’s disrespectful, or that he thinks that the work I’ve dedicated my life to is useless to him, and that he says so, to my face. Awesome, sweet, adorable kid!”

    JudyAz: It’s the “branch plant syndrome”, a Canadian attitude that they can’t do for themselves except under US (or occasionally UK) instruction.

    I had fun with this during metrication in the ’70s. Canada used imperial measures (an imperial gallon equaled five US quarts), but groceries might be in either system. Metric added a third one, and with anything new, there was opposition. When I heard this objection, I would suggest that first we should get a common quart, somewhere between the US and imperial sizes. This was always greeted with full approval. Then I said it could be called a litre. Sputters resulted.

    I remember that! I was living in Toronto when metrication took place. Remember the Imperial gallons in which gasoline was sold. You’re right about an Imperial gallon being five US quarts, or 160 oz., but I seem to remember that it was because an Imperial gallon was four Imperial quarts, each of which was 40 oz.

    That would have been something to have a book report to do for school with a teacher concerned about it being done. In my school the concern was for football and other sports. My parents loved it. To them it meant my studies were covered. Meanwhile my caloric requirements increased even while the rations were cut.

    Some days I just feel like as an American, I should apologize over and over again for the place I was born in. It gets tiresome.

    Hate to be “that guy” here, but the quote is “it’s easier to ask forgiveness than it is to ask permission.” By Rear Admiral Grace Hopper, computer programming pioneer and one of the sharpest wits around.
