The Metric Ton is exactly 1000Kg, and falls right between the two.

Since the Long Ton is rarely used in Canada, and the crew is Canadian, when they use the terms "ton" (in comparison to the metric ton), it will almost always be referring to the smaller short ton that they use in America.

I'm fully aware of this. It's just that it's becoming a common phrase In England as well as the US and Canada, which makes no sense. Especially since I don't think most people over here would realise that there is a kind of ton smaller than the tonne. I guess it's just some phrase which people have picked up from Americans and never actually thought about, but it does me good to have a rant about stuff like this from time to time.

Oh, by the way, the video was awesome. :mrgreen:

His name was also in the credits so if he didn't recognize the voice he could hav seen it there and being blind would hinder the reading of credits

I'm pretty sure that was intentional.

Woot!

And that scientist, something tells me she gets corporate funding to say there's not a problem here.


Er, no comment...

Maybe it's not so much "corporate funding" as "beta testing". I bet you she's got a copy of [insert x-mas release game] tucked in her desk drawer...

Is there any chance of grabbing the music from that video? Or a name\link to someplace to buy it? Hell, is it even available for download? :P

Reminds me of music from the Devin Townsend Project's album, "Ki"

Ok, dorky question but I have to ask.


Is the music at the very beginning from Super Mario 64?

Sounds a LOT like the underwater theme from there.

Not a dorky question at all! I got my inspiration for that track from many sources. One of which was, in fact, the theme from the Super Mario 64 world Dire Dire Dock as performed by a friend of mine, GlitterBerri. Her performance of that theme has been very inspirational to me over the years.

To be clear, NO that is not the music in the vid. The music I made for the vid is, for lack of a better term, reminiscent of it (more specifically of GlitterBerri's performance of it).

You can find her version here: http://www.glitterberri.com/piano/dire-dire-docks

I love that song. I know how to play the opening. I really need to learn the rest of it.
