You have to capitalize parts of the URL for it to work here, but if you change the capitalization after the last “/”, it won’t work any more. That part is case sensitive.
Where did you get that information? YouTube?
“Rods are the thing. I demand rods per moon.”
I’m not sure what you mean by “moon”, but I will assume you are referring to a synodic lunar month (lunation), which is 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 2.9 seconds, which I will round off to 29.53 days. A rod is 16.5 feet, so…
885.8268 ft/h = 53.6864727273 rods/h = 1288.475 rods/(synodic) day = 38048.6769513 rods/lunation.
The foot was originally the length of the king’s foot, so I guess we’d have to use Tyrannosaurus Rex’s foot size (“Rex” is Latin for “king”).
“what is it in furlongs/fortnight? (I know someone out there will try to figure that out)”
1 furlong = 660 feet, so…
0.27 km/h. = 885.8268 ft/h = 1.3 furlongs/hour = 31.2 fur/day = 436.8 fur/fortnight.
All moms can do that.
“Nothing wrong with a green Christmas and New Year”
I live in Iceland, an here we call it a “red Christmas” when it doesn’t snow.
And, by the time we’ll have to go to northern Canada to see snow, none of us will be here any more. I’m not denying that global climate change is happening, but it’s not happening that fast.
I see the mistake. It’s 0.34 hours, not 34 minutes. That’s about 20 minutes and 19 seconds.
“Why are there socking stuffers and not … shoe stuffers?”
There are. We don’t have Santa Clause in Iceland. Instead, there are 13 Yule Lads, who live up in the mountains, and come to town one at a time the thirteen days before Christmas. These Yule Lads were originally mischievous and caused all kinds of trouble. Like Santa, their main purpose was to frighten children into being good around Christmas. Today, though, children put their shoe in the window in the evening before going to bed, and in the morning there is a gift in the shoe, ostensibly from one of the Yule Lads.
