All you Military folfs.... How far is a Click..? I was just watching Tears of the Sun and he made a refference to "12 Clicks". I've heard it before elsewhere too.

Thanks - Travis

It's spelled klick, incidentally.

European bastards and their moronic measurement systems are so ass-backwards they have to come up with stupid ways of saying the terms faster. Nobody wants to say kilometer, they say klick. Nobody wants to say kilogram, they say kilo.

Just use the imperial system like we do and you used to for centuries and quit trying desperately to be different, you pompous little monkeys! Nobody has to come up with a shorter way of saying mile or pound or gallon, and maybe you'd like spelling ton in a way that makes phonetic sense.

i deal with both units of measurment ... and i find the whole si stuff way easier to use than the english units ... i could care less about abreviating it ...
