How to measure a compression fitting so that you know what size tubing you need?
I have this pressure cooker with a compression fitting built into the lid. I need to buy copper tubing to fit that compression fitting. How do I know what size to get?

I would take the compression fitting with you to the store, or at least take it apart and take the ferrule (compression ring) with you. If you’re in the USA it’s likely to be 1/4″.
Cosmonaut Compression Gaiters

"The actual designer is unknown, but it was presumably a doctor or medical technician at one of the medical research facilities associated with the Soviet space program, such as the Institute for Bio-Medical Problems. The gaiters were designed to assist in the alleviation of a specific medical problem, the development of varicose veins in the legs during prolonged periods of weightlessness. Their elastic nature puts pressure on the legs, simulating the effects of gravity and thus preventing swelling of the leg veins. The adjustable lacings allow the gaiters to be ‘customised’ for the best fit and also provide the capability to vary the pressure on the leg as required.
The gaiters are presumed to been made in one of the maunufacturing plants associated with the Soviet aerospace medicine program.
Cosmonaut Vladimir Titov wore these gaiters after he returned from his year-long mission on the Mir space station (Dec 21, 1987-Dec 22, 1988). While on board Mir, Titov would have used a similar pair of gaiters to prevent varicose veins, due to the microgravity environment. This pair was worn during Titov’s post-spaceflight physical rehabilitation, to help prevent the same condition resulting from the effect of gravity on his debilitated leg muscles.
Vladimir Titov, colonel in Soviet Air Force. Commander of the Soyuz TM-4 mission, Titov spent 12 months on the Mir space station carrying out a range of scientific and engineering experiments and research. After returning to Earth he spent several months undergoing physical rehabilitation from the effects of his long duration flight. Titov later trained as a NASA Mission Specialist and made two space shuttle flights in connection with the Shuttle-Mir program, STS-63 (Feb 3-11, 1995) and STS-86 (Sept 25-Oct 6, 1997).
These items were part of Lot 299 at the Sotheby’s New York space auction 16/3/96, consigned by Titov himself. A document in Russian, with English translation, signed by Titov, accompanies the gaiters and refers to his use of them."

A highly processed compression and diffusion of images depicting the Capital Letter A. The source images were drawn from the flickr most interesting, and most recent uploads with the tags letter and A.
To increase the definition of the final image, the inital set was edited down to the "right" set based on a simple criteria: was a capital letter A visible in the image. Each member of the right set was cropped to subarea containing the image of the capital A.
Post processing was applied to emphasize the color variation of the original set, and to add texture and depth to the resulting image.
