RCM 1977 July Part B Pages 82 - 84: The article on 'Dimensional Methods in Aircraft Modeling' attracted my attention. When I did my Aeronautical Engineering degree in 1965-68, we used a unit called 'slugs' in the calculation of air density. It was a convenient way of getting rid of the gravitational constant. None of my non aeronautical engineering colleagues ever believed there was a unit of mass called a slug. And surprise, surprise, dear old Bill Carter does his calculations in this article using slugs. Oh the sweet nostalgia !! I make the proposal for one of the 'win a million' shows, that the 1 million question is something like 'what are slugs, blobs, slinches and glugs' ? Go google (or ask the audience or your telephone partner) !!!

This is fascinating, Chris. I've never heard of a slug as a unit of anything before. Except whisky maybe! ;)
