I’m on the back end of a sinus-flooding Sudafed-medicated summer-cold thing, and Google normally kicks my butt anyway. What the heck is a femto-Planck? Is that the same thing they use to measure the particles that make up chalk?

From WikiPedia: “Femto- (symbol f) is a unit prefix in the metric system denoting a factor of 10−15 or 0.000000000000001. ” And the Planck length is allegedly the smallest length that can be observed (due to quantum nature of Reality). Thus the division of the “Planck” is nonsense and the femtoPlanck utterly ridiculous. Therefore the ideal unit for measuring fractional aggressions, yes?

Assuming you believe WikiPedia, then yes. I was thinking we’d need some form of “imaginary numbers” math to measure them. Of course, nobody knows what “imaginary numbers” are any longer due to common core math. So femtoPlancks it is.

That *will* make it into a comic some day, Orvan 🙂

I get the d[arn]edest looks at the check-out when I answer the query of “Did you find everything OK?” with “Not quite. I have a problem with the tomato paste. No matter how I apply it, it just won’t paste a tomato back together.” }:o)

Measured in femto-Plancks?

You’re right, that micro-comic is hilarious. “Tomato paste” HA! It works on so many levels!

Wrong tool for the job. Try ketchup instead.
