Now this is funny. Here's a list of "non-standard units of measurement", including such items as

  • 2.4 statute miles of intravenous surgical tubing at Yale University Hospital = 1 I.V. League
  • 365.25 days = 1 unicycle
  • 1000 female sheep = 1 milieu
  • 2 doctors = 1 paradox

and more beauties along the same lines. Swiped quite blatantly from Mark Kleiman.

When Mom signs on to her new MSN Internet receiver, it makes the most screwy jungly noises you've ever heard. I wonder if this is standard with the latest version of MSN. I've never heard a butterfly make a sound, so somebody's imagination ran wild when creating that thing.

Oh, if you wonder why I'm not going bonkers over the Bush = AWOL thing, it's because Kevin Drum is all over it.

Butterflies making sounds?! I wonder what's in the water at Microsoft...
