pt for margin what is this craziness?

Hampton Catlin - You made me laugh and wonder "what is this craziness" using pt as unit for margin in the defining variables video of the Sass course.

It's a pretty contrived example, but it seems like it could (possibly) have some good use cases.

I am king of "well, it should be possible" ;)

I much prefer writing the code in Sass (Sass’s indented syntax), rather than Scss. Every tutorial I watch, they usual say Sass, but it is written in Scss... leaves me confused!

What is your preferred version to work with?

I just set up all my imports for a new project, and it is working sweet!

Michael Trilford -

It's Sass & SCSS by the way, like Hampton Catlin taught us in the video capitalization matters.

Thank you, I did wonder about how I should write SCSS, as it looked wrong.

I think it was just for an example, as it made the whole number crazy 3.45678 value?

Can't quite remember :-)

Thought it was a weird choice also, haha.
