A kilometer is measure of distance from here to way over there.

It is figured as a thousand meters and not like 653 meters or 12 meters or 823.11273 meters. Who the hell cares since a meter is an arbitrary distance in the first place. Somebody scratched a couple of marks on a metal bar and said, "That's a meter". And it's not like somebody else is actually going to take that bar and measure a distance off a thousand times. So not only is the cake a lie, so is a kilometer.

So you want a more exact measure of what a kilometer is supposed to be? 189.893 rods are equal to a kilometer. Not good? There are 4.97 furlongs in a kilometer. No? Don't even start about conversion to miles, since nobody civilized uses that any more. Admit it, you don't know what measurements mean in first place, just numbers on a readout. Just accept what the road signs tell you and pretend that you really are getting 300 km per liter of petrol/gasoline.


Guesstimate[edit]


Moo!
Follow the White Rabbit
Will the universe be changed one bit if you do? Probably not. The curious songs of blue whales? Maybe. But your reflection in the mirror? Oh, yes.
