    Hey everyone, just joined this today and I am wondering how I didn't find it earlier. I am a freelance electrician and ME in NYC, except during the summers I ME at Merry-Go-Round Playhouse in Auburn, NY. I also design stuff in the city when the opportunity presents itself. My interests include making things pretty, the smell of brand new cable, and playing with scissor lifts. I don't have an official stance on the pirates vs. ningas debate that seems to be taking place but I am sure I will get there. I think we should be using Metric here in America. So you don't even have to ask those questions now:) Well I guess that's it for now.

    You come to Endicott and I'll get you some real breakfast pizza.
    Ham or sausage, eggs and cheese on a perfect crust.

    This appears to be a first. It would appear that a new member has managed to hijack his own introductory thread in only one post.

    BRAVO! and welcome!

    Wecome to the booth. And please ignore the metric conflict. And the pizza conflict (hey, where did this one come from, guys?), and the ninja conflict if it ever comes up again.

    To heck with the metric/imperial wars, we still use cubits at my theatre! Biblical measurements for all!

    You know I'm starting to think you might have something there Alex. No need to carry a measuring tape, you've always got your forearm with you. That's mighty convenient... I may have to convert.

    It works out quite well in our scene shop, as we always have the same one person who builds all the flats, and one person who always does platforms, and one who always does the metal work, so in effect we have standard cubits. Plus, given that a cubit is approximately 18" it is a very convenient unit of measure for hanging lights.

    Hey I just measured, my cubit is 19".
    It's tip of middle finger to point of elbow right? What, am I a freak of nature now too?

    Mine measures 19 5/8" inches. I can see it now, on all my future Light Plots: "All units space on 19 5/8" centers, except as noted." That would annoy every electrician I've ever worked with!;) And yes, Van, you ARE a freak of nature, but not due to the size of your cubit!
