Many a time here. Frankly, I even consider this discrepency a stress
contributor on the planet.

I wish we could get the U.S./Japan/etc to come down from 60 and Europe
to go up from 50 and split the difference at 55 Hz thus bringing the
planet back in tune.But then 440 isn't that solidly entrenched a
standard either.
