    Wait, don’t make me scroll back. Is that negative 3 Ogdens for Durango or plus 3?

    Last time I was in Durango I’d have called it -4 or -5 Ogdens.

    Last time I was in a Dodge Durango I called it 5 Ogdens.

    Now you're just obfuscating. Obfuscation is not mensuration.
    Clarify your metric.
    TIA

    This thread (and Ogden) is about obfuscation, not menstruation.

    Snowbasin is -4 Ogden's, what a fun 2 winters I had there 12 years ago. Huntsville is 1/-1 Ogdens. and Ogden was +3 Ogden's last time I was there.

    Durango is -5 Ogden in my book, love that town and learned to ski at Purgatory.

    Boulder is a mixed bag on the Ogden scale. Not even sure how to rate my current town.

    Hopefully my Ogden ratings are correctly interpreted!

    FKNA. Dollars to donuts PowderHorse knows how many cubic somethings are in a Range, too.

    totally agree on Boulder. Some days I think it's 5 Ogdens. Others, it's -3 Ogdens. On an occasional day, it hits -7 Ogdens. But probably usually hovers around 2 Ogdens.

    huh, I didn't think Boulder was that bad.

    It isn't, it's just annoying sometimes and I'm tired if it. But I work in downtown Denver and still choose to commute from Boulder so I guess it should be rated higher. Or lower. Damn Ogden scale.

    I claimed there was some number of cubic somethings in a Range....

    After a bit of research I'm guessing the cubic something in question = 2 US gallons, 2 US quarts, 2 US pints, 1 imperial cup, 1 imperial fluid ounce and 1 US Tablespoon.

    Or 1 Range equals 94 US gallons, 94 US quarts, 94 US pints, 47 imperial cups, 47 imperial fluid ounces and 47 US Tablespoons.

    That's quite annoying. Well played. Easily more annoyance per Range than $20 in Zimbabwe's currency, at that rate.

    What kind of Range are we talking about here? Open? Kitchen? Rifle? Rover? Seems like it would be hard for them all to be 47.

    Exactly. Although I've capped out at about -3 Ogdens in Boulder, maybe once. At least I live in South Boulder and closer to the I 70 shit show for skiing!

    Maybe I should have stipulated that the unspecified volume was the addition of all those things (and also 1/47th of a Range) just to keep it clear. And, like any official unit of measure, the Range must transcend its origins--perhaps it's the size of a fairly average range, perhaps not.

    Also, kitchen range was, I believe, the original statement from someone that annoyed KQ. It was then nominated for an official unit of measure and (last I saw) a simultaneous unit of both volume and annoyance. So better used when describing 6 million Ranges of mud sliding into town than the volume of blower that dropped on Silver Mountain. Unless you can't get there to ski, at which point 7 million Ranges of 6% moisture could be proportionately annoying in its own way.

    I wonder if maybe this whole other unit thing came about because someone was trying to calculate the Ogden rating for the community under 6 million ranges of mud up on Rattlesnake Ridge? Guessing 9. A 6 minimum, but 9 doesn't seem high given the other aspects of its geography.

    Now that the group completion has occurred and negative Ogdens are well defined, is there a quorum on equivalence classes of pairs :
    (a,b) "=="(c,d) <=> a*d == b*c.

    That provides a well defined extension to fractional Ogdens.
    Throw in Cauchy sequences of Ogdens and they become complete.

    What's an imaginary Ogden?

    The assumption that Ogdens are discrete is interesting in itself, but anyway: Since equivalence classes cannot be uncountable, it may help to first determine their cardinality. eg stink:meth, republicans:momos, etc
    Kick it around.

    Park city is plummeting on the Ogden scale. I’d give it a -1. Instead of the previously stated -9.
