    Also in the famous Christian proof that pi is equal to three...

    "And he [Hiram] made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one rim to the other it was round all about, and...a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about....And it was an hand breadth thick...." — First Kings, chapter 7, verses 23 and 26

    "The size of 2 American football fields, with cooling towers four stories high."

    I for one haven't a clue as to how long an "American football field" is, or any other football field either.
    Then again how high is a "storie"? Is that like in a house? An apartment building? a skyscraper building? Or?

    It sure bugs me when they throw in these ambiguous measurements that they expect everybody to know perxactly what they mean.

    A Usonian football field is 777... jugs of maple syrup long.

    A story is about the height of 36 jugs of maple syrup.
