From Avweb's website of things aviating:While recently flying from FLL to JFK an airline captain was givenholding instructions due to congestion. After holding for quite sometime, the captain finished an exchange with a controller with an attempt to clarify his situation:Captain: Copy. Could we get an EFC [expect further clearance], please?ATC: Indefinite.Captain: ...I don't think I have the fuel for that.Doc Bryant :+(wondering if indefinite is measured in Imperial Gallons, US gallons,pounds or kilos?)

>(wondering if indefinite is measured in Imperial Gallons, US >gallons, >pounds or kilos?) Either,Kilos -- indefinite is defintely one of those abstract scientific thinggie-ma-howzits that high-falutin scientists like to use metric for in order to shut out all the non-metrical normal people. They could of course just realise that no one can really grasp infinity but that would be too simple a solution.Or, US Gallons -- he's holding over Brooklyn, after all. Who bothers with that snarky Manhattan metric yadder anyways? x(Dave H, maybe you can provide some insight? I'm not as funny as I thought I might be at this hour, analysis requested.ted oat,TedMontreal,mind like :-spam1 at the moment
