Frank and Ernest by Thaves for March 24, 2013
Frank: Today we'll talk with Professor Ernie about some lesser-known units of measurement. Let's start with the "light-year"... Ernest: A "light year" is a unit of time measuring how long somebody stays on their diet. In most cases it's counted in small fractions. Frank: No. A light-year is a unit of length equal to the distance light travels in a year, about six trillion miles! Frank: What about the "Angstrom"? Ernest: The "ANGSTrom" is a measurement of anxiety levels! Frank: Incorrect again. It's another unit of length--it's used to describe atomic-level distances. Frank: Here's one which isn't a unit of length. What does "foot-pound" measure? Ernest: That's obvious. Kickboxer punches!
