    Actually, especially in this electronic age, there's no reason you can't instrument a gas gauge to display it properly. You have a gas tank of known shape and, outside of slosh and incline/tilt problems, your measuring device outputs an electric signal that should be convertible to a direct measurement. And the incline/tilt issue would just require adding another sensor to measure that, although I wouldn't bother since it's just a transient situation.[/residualengineeringknowledge]

    Bad things happen to all people, good people and bad people.
    Bad things just happen.

    I would estimate that since the year 0, there have been in the neighborhood of 23 billion deaths. Right now, the Earth is at 6 billion plus, the highest it's ever been. Taking that total and going backward from there, that's the estimate I'd give.

    But maybe you should ask that question here:

    He's probably got some kind of running total, don't you think? Like a file on his computer that updates in real time or something?

    Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?

    And what's the deal with airline food?

    On a more germane note, how can Dick Vitale enunciate so clearly while he has his tongue up Coach K's ass?

    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    Why can't the armadillo ever make it across the road?

    Why did Grady Little leave Pedro in Game 7 against the Yankees?

    Why can't we all just get along?
