Unit of Measurement of the Day

The hogshead.

One hogshead is equal to sixty-three gallons or two barrels.

The Anakha: The time it takes for a drunken Canadian military police officer to down a pitcher of beer, smoke an entire pack of cigs, invent 17 new swearwords and unsuccessfully hit on every girl in the bar. Equivalent to 2.34 of your earth minutes.

There are a few more 'context' sensitive answers to this one.

Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made:
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But does suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.


How far away is the father in shackles?

1/3. 15 fathoms = 1 shackle. Is that quote from the Tempest?

My car gets forty rods to the hogshead and that's the way I likes it!

I pronounce anakha an-ak-ha
You are correct. It's a character's name from a book and it has nothing to do with my gender.

There is some pretty good evidence floating around the currently occupied threads right now that confirm my gender.

I am actually asexual.

I like slugs. I use them quite frequently actually. All the rest of your crazy units are just that: crazy.
