For those of you who regularly read ESPN's Bill Simmons, you already know that one of his readers wrote in and said that Bill's book, "Now I can die in peace", was 189 poops long. Bill plans to use this quote in subsequent reprints of the book.

However, it made me wonder about other interesting units of measure that exist out there. Another classic unit of measure is the Smoot, familiar to those who have ever walked over the Mass. Ave. bridge from Boston to Cambridge, MA. What is a Smoot you ask? Here's one definition: http://aether.lbl.gov/www/personnel/smoot/smoot-measure.html

Anyone know of any others?
