: : 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
: one side to the middle?
: Sorry, but that's the width.
: Try "one end to the middle" next time.
EH? Let's not get bogged down with technicalities shall we?
