A lesson in conversions for the mathematically challenged 

A friend offered to help me with math and emailed this:

1/2 large intestine = 1 semicolon
1 million bicycles = 2 megacycles
1000 aches = 1 megahertz
10 cards = 1 decacards
1 kilogram of falling figs = 1 fig Newton
1000 grams of wet socks = 1 liter hosen

Other helpful conversions are welcome in the comments.

    15 ohms = 1 transcendental meditation class
    10 pecks = 1 agitated chicken
    .022 pounds of goldfish = 10 gram crackers

  2. I invented the conversion of evil spirits to good. Indeed this year I came up with the concept of instantaneous global evil-spirit eradication. I believe it is the only mathematics conversion necessary. What do you think Tim?

  3. *Universal* it was sorry – universal evil-spirit eradication. It seems to have gone down a ‘hit’.

  4. I’m picking up that Martin Luther King Jr. II intended to finish the job in saying: instantaneous universal evil-spirit eradication. Maybe Martin Luther King Jr. II should have taken Mr. Obama’s advice: “I think of this job as being a relay runner — you take the baton, you run your best race, and hopefully, by the time you hand it off you’re a little further ahead, you’ve made a little progress” (Obama, 2016).

    Thanks, you got my mind in a playing mood:
    Speedo for someone with a hip circumference of 100cm= speedometer
    Kittens packed to fill a 10cm x 10cm x 10cm box = liter of kittens
    100 cents found on the beach = sand dollar
    A phone weighing only 1/1 000th of a kg = gramophone
    1000 kg of wood = plankton
    Hours: The minutes of 60 meetings
    1/1 000 th of Pete = millipede
