    I don't read Italian, but quite sure the batter in the flour dam is polenta, 'corn meal'. Yaa we use it too!

    I was thinking a light minute would be a linear measurement. 186,000 miles/sec, x 60 s =11,160,000 miles... lets ask Jason how many barley corns that is?

    A light mile would be a unit of time? We should start using that.. "Honey, I will be there in 20 light miles." That means I better hurry!!!

    Quote from the video: “what kind of country would use a system like that”?

    I think there is only one big country left, and that’s because they are pig headed about it, clinging to their colonial past.

    A handy relation to remember is that light travels about a foot in a nanosecond.
