Metre

In 1983, the fifth legal definition of the metre was the the distance that light travels in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 of a second. length of the meter was redefined at the 17th meeting of the international body Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures (GCPM) by a method to give greater accuracy. It superceded the fourth legal definition adopted on 14 Oct 1960 based on a spectral line of kryton. Earlier definitions included the distance between marks on the international prototype metre bar made of platinum-iridium alloy (28 Sep 1889). Before that, the metre was decided that it should be one ten-millionth of the distance from the North Pole to the equator (1 Aug 1793), and the earliest concept was the length of a pendulum with a half-period of one second (8 May 1790).«

Low Bridge

A truck driver was driving along on the freeway. He passed a sign that said “low bridge ahead.”
Before he knew it, the bridge was right ahead of him and he got stuck under the bridge. You could say that he got a rock solid “Trucker's Wedgie.”
Cars were backed up for miles.
Finally, a police car pulled up. The cop got out of his car and walked around to the truck driver, put his hands on his hips and said, “Got stuck, huh?”
The truck driver said, “No officer,… I was delivering this bridge and ran out of gas!”
