    AFAIK, a double quote only denotes an arcsecond, not a time second. Bad
    Canon.
    I'd rather they were entirely standard-compliant and unambiguous, like
    '1/4000s f/5.6', but I bet somewhere sometime that was too wide to display
    and the "superfluous" characters were removed.

    I think you meant to post 457200000000Å.

    But of course the precise notation would be
    2828765383554074068400227560934600000 Planck lengths.

    Every body is forgetting that I have very bad depth perception.

  9. No, he meant they were the first to use elongated tees when driving off
    the 1st, 5th, 10th and 17th holes (on El Golf de Dios course)

    No! I was making an oblique, tongue in cheek, reference to the Inca's
    cult of the dead. In short, they treated the dead like royalty and
    drinks were served in cups sometimes fashioned from human bones.
