So how long *is* a piece of string?

In the UK we used to have a measurement called The Foot. Definition - 12 inches.

Now we are Europeans, we have the Metre. Definition - the distance light travels in a vacuum in 1/299792458th of a second.

Good here, innit!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
