I was drinking a Snapple today and I always enjoy the Facts that are on the inside of the cap.

Share your facts as you get them throughout your day

Here's mine:

Right, but you dont just say "a mile isnt a mile". You have to differentiate between geographical mile and nautical mile. Otherwise, yes a "mile on land" does equal a "mile on water".

In fact, the nautical mile isnt even in the International System of Units as a measurement.

So stuff your made up measurements in your pipe and smoke them!

I prefer to get my facts off the internet as opposed to under bottle caps. It's a lot more reliable.

Which is as good as 1MOA at the equator. Holy not-quite-gun-related, batman!

That was the rhyme. "A minute's as good as a mile."
