    A "cubit" was the ancient unit of length based on the length of the forearm....so it changed occasionally when the King got overthrown...or knifed. They hadn't heard of wave lengths of light.

    In modern times the international unit of measurement of one metre has gotten more sophisticated as scientists claim:

    "it is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). Originally intended to be one ten-millionth of the distance from the Earth's equator to the North Pole, its definition has been periodically refined to reflect growing knowledge of metrology. Since 1983, it is defined as the distance travelled by light in vacuum in 1⁄299,792,458 of a second "(1)

    (1) From Wikipedia

    I like the cubit definition better(ha)

    Bill Cosby was great!

    This and the story of the Shelby Cobra (with dual Hickey's where the dual super chargers live) are 2 of my favorites.

    Dammit get in here! But Dad, I'm Jesus Christ. Is my all time favorite sketch though.
