LOL you and your vectors. Speaking as a credentialed engineer, allow me to say that physicists insist on vectors, engineers just look for what makes the part break. Which is always a scalar. ;-)

But, in the end, isn't scalar just a trivial tensor?

Seriously, though: I know it can be annoying, but if my pedantism received anything over the last couple of months, was vindication.
