We can all read measurements on a ruler or tape measure. Most of us can even read the measurements of a metric scale. But do you know the names of the lengths you are measuring? There isn’t one easy to remember name, but, depending on what you are measuring, the names are unique. Sooo…
Measurements you may not know:
1. Ratio of an igloo's circumference to its diameter = Eskimo Pi

3. 1 millionth of a mouthwash = 1 microscope
4. Time between slipping on a peel and smacking the pavement = 1 bananosecond
5. Weight an evangelist carries with God = 1 billigram
6. Time it takes to sail 220 yards at 1 nautical mile per hour = Knotfurlong
7. 364.25 days of drinking low-calorie beer = 1 Lite year
8. 16.5 feet in the Twilight Zone = 1 Rod Sterling
