Ring Ring! It’s the Geek Phone, and It’s For Me!

I was buying a pair of headphones the other day, and I wanted an extender cord as well, since they’re for my computer, which is under my desk. They didn’t have extenders, so I checked the length of the cord to see if it would be long enough as is. The cord’s length? “Two meters”.

So then I’m trying to figure out if two meters is long enough. I know a meter is around a yard, but is either shorter or longer. I’m in the aisle, holding out my arms to try to approximate, and all I can think is:

“It’s a little smaller than a womp rat.”

    That would be geekier if I wasn’t someone who dates everything from whether it occurred before or after May 25, 1977.

    Brilliant. I suspect that Luke’s talking in Tantoonie terms is not unlike the Navajo Code Talkers of WWII. I imagine some confused Imperial code breaker trying to run Beggars Canyon through his universal translator and comming up short. And how much did the destruction of the Death Star rely not on the force, but on Luke growing up on a planet where the only thing to do on a Friday Night was get drunk and shoot 8 foot rodents fronm the driver’s side of a speeder. Long live the red-neck rebelion.
