    Mine too. Bad day on Goat Rock is a local Nor Cal saying/place that can be and has been dangerous and wreck your whole day...probably derived from the movie title. Bad Day at Black Rock was a great film and terrific cast. Too bad for Komoko and Macreedy but loved Dean Jagger as the crusty drunkard sheriff.

    Great replies on "bad day" but in oil and gas exploration you have to be certain about the estimated measurements to "TD" meaning "Total Depth" to the end of the exploratory drill string to find the best oil production rock layers. When using semi-submersible platforms for exploration drilling and costing up to $250K in daily lease costs you have to be accurate as possible to where expect to find the oil/gas reservoir below sea bottom before the rig operations stops drilling due to no significant hydrocarbon logging and declares a dry hole. Mixing my Imperial and metric measurements in my analysis was always in the back of my mind as to whether or not I made a mistake. I triple checked everything.

    On the subject of drill string length the unit of measurement was used when I was working in the patch was tenths of a foot the tally tapes were 100 ft long.every joint of drill stem had to be measured or tallied and marked to the nearest tenth of a foot.
    I once worked at a place building wire-line logging trucks everyone was given a 12 ft stainless steel Lufkin pocket that was marked off in tenths of an inch with smaller graduations that amounted to .02" The owner of the company would buy them gross lots o f 144 at a time then randomly stretch out 10 at a time and check them against each other. before issuing them because all of the blue prints were in .000" of an inch to us. I liked them but a lot of the guys couldn't get their head around to that method of measuring. but they were the same guys who would call 9/16" of an in inch 9 of those little marks, or 1 mark past the middle mark on a fractional tape measure
