: Many people have asked this and many have no answer. So here is my attempt. The next time someone asks you "how long is a piece of string?" hit them with "double the length from one side to the middle!". Might keep them quiet for a while

it would be simpler to say 1 of the following:
1. twice as long as half the length.
or
2. Half as long as twice the length.
