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 It superceded the fourth legal definition adopted on 14 Oct 1960 based on a spectral line of kryton.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).«

Get Me My Drink

On reaching his plane seat a man is surprised to see a parrot strapped in next to him. He asks the stewardess for a coffee where upon the parrot squawks, "And get me a whisky you cow!" The stewardess, flustered, brings back a whisky for the parrot and forgets the coffee.
When this omission is pointed out to her the parrot drains its glass and bawls, "And get me another whisky you bitch". Quite upset, the girl comes back shaking with another whisky but still no coffee.
Unaccustomed to such slackness the man tries the parrot's approach, "I've asked you twice for a coffee, go and get it now or I'll kick your ass".
Next moment both he and the parrot have been wrenched up and thrown out of the emergency exit by two burly stewards. Plunging downwards the parrot turns to him and says, "For someone who can't fly you're a lippy bastard!"
