Well then hurry up, the place is crawling with plague and needs a good flush.

I appreciate that the math in this headline checks out. That's the kind of high-quality, fact-based reporting I come to Fark for.

I think you could fit five dogs in just what we could see. Poor reporting.

Fun fact:
The the measurement of "one foot" was based on the length of a twelve inch ruler.

Quick, someone build a long pipeline from Greenland's ice to the U.S. southwest, which is in drought and could use blast of fresh water.

It's good to see the standard RI-F uniy being used appropriately subby.

The resemblance is eerie.

Why not a useful measurement like how many microns (0.000039 inch, for all those countries still not using the metric system, namely the USA, Burma, and Liberia) this has affected global sea level, and what length of time it would take at that daily rate to change sea level by 1cm (0.393701 inch)?

To be fair, even here in Germany (or at least in Berlin) they use 'fun' measurements to give people an idea of social distance. 1.5 meters equals... 1 pony, 3 corgies, 5 crates of beer, 2 Döner spits,...
