He would get 8th's and 16th's right every time. He was also a part-time carpenter. He could glance at a tape-measure and do the same thing. He struggled with millimeters when it became common much later in his life.
In my opinion this is right on topic. Imagine living your entire life learning and perfecting something one way and then having a new system or way of doing something introduced. It would be difficult for most people to just accept it as is and understand it right away. Thank you for your post.
