But, but, but..., but I am German, and while this fact is hardly
puzzeling for an American, for a young immigrating German, the world
almost stops rotating and the universe collapses, if something that is
called "53mm by 106mm", we *will* have planned our project to that

To an American, probably feels like loading a 12 gauge shotgun with 16
gauge shells -- NOOOOoooooo......
