    Re: SI Units

    Speaking of units, here's a line from an article on space.com last week:
    "Footage shows that the meteor, roughly the size of a tricycle, was moving at 
    a speed of 13 miles per second (75,317 kph) as it traveled over southern 
    Ontario."
    
    A tricycle?? Is that the latest SI unit? We're measuring everything in units 
    of "tricycles" now?! Of course, this is supposed to be a nice visual way of 
    picturing something about a meter across. I suppose a "unicycle" would be 
    about one foot across. :-)
