Cool. It’s the right answer, too!

Here’s another:

A small particle escaping earth’s gravity, slows to a constant speed of 2.86 outhouses per fortnight. How many Microcenturies will pass before it travels a parsec? Here ‘s list of measurements.

Here’s a few for atomic measurement.

CPhill should remember Donkeypower.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_humorous_units_of_measurement#Donkeypower

Just in case a question appears requiring the amount of power required to accelerate a mass of “mule muffins” to X Mules per hour. (Francis wants you to remember that mules are half donkey. So use the proper converting constant, else you might end up with something other than a half-assed answer).

Francis, and his sister, Frances are still pondering the correct solution for the mules per hour question. At least one is up in the air about it, but both are flying high; they are having a party, and are on their third Moscow-mule, so it might be Midnight in Moscow before there is a mulish answer.

Until next time ... keep kickin'

Shouldn't it be in a liquid measure Chris?

Yes, I figured that!

I think that is about the ugliest emicon wink that i have ever seen!

Could you convert it to

"Imperial minims"

What are "Imperial minims"?

I just looked them up

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minim_(unit)

I am very glad that we use metric in Australia!

660,000,000 km3

From this web page:

$${\mathtt{1.071}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{10}}}^{{\mathtt{25}}}$$     US minims

the conversion is 1 US minim = 1.040842731 imperial minims

From:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minim_(unit)

$${\mathtt{1.071}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{10}}}^{{\mathtt{25}}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{1.040\: \!842\: \!731}} = {\mathtt{11\,147\,425\,649\,010\,000\,000\,000\,000}}$$

= 1.1147 x 1025 imperial minims

I have to admit, too....I never heard of "imperial minims," either !!

Thank you Francis and Company.

I liked this unit of measurement!!

#### Mickey

One mickey per second is the smallest resolvable unit of measurement for the speed and direction that a computer mouse pointing device is moved. It is named after Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse cartoon character. Generally there are two measurements sent during a mouse movement, one for the horizontal axis and one for the vertical axis. Device sensitivity is usually specified in mickeys per inch.

Only a question or so ago I was dealing with another mouse.  Only that was Jerry. We shared some cheese.

It could have been worse for the donkey I guess.
