Odds are it is just me using it wrong, but to me TILT was always a direct reference to cartoons like Bugs Bunny when something, like an altimeter is going fast, like REALLY 'you-cant-see-the-numbers-passing-by' fast and then the meter reads TILT out of a sudden like it was saying 'I quit'.
So when I say my math calculators went TILT they gave up on such a problem as the one I mentioned above.
Case in point, I still have the 'result' saved, I am not too well versed in physics so I cannot even read it correctly.
My calculations ended with this: 7.982198e+ m3/h
I am not even sure what that is.
*little edit here, just googled 'tilt' to check if maybe I had it wrong. Turns Google is trolling me. Dammit, I am too tired for this.
