QEII is a ruler.
A plastic thingy with scratch marks is a rule.

Bar the fact you need to get a life, you are to put it bluntly, wrong.

It may be esoteric but it's hardly a euphemism.

No engineering background then, eh?

Need to get a life? I'm not the one who who went chasing five references to prove a moot point.

Everyone on Jet Blast needs to get a life. That is why we are on Jet Blast.

It's either this or out the back laying paving bricks.
No decision really.

Actually, these days not really a joke...

A bit past the age of worrying about either, particularly out here mid Pacific.

Being an engineer and being on Jet Blast, I had to look it up.

"Ruler" is just a 15th century variation of "rule," which comes, via French, from Latin "regula," which meant a measuring stick, a diminutive derived from "regere," to straighten, lead, or guide

According to the first internet post I saw when I Googled it. So it must be right.

There, I can sleep more soundly tonight.

A little dog, a pug, peed on my shoe. Is that a "golden shower"?
