Uh-Oh: A Dispute About Figures

Daniel takes issue with 6 Feet—Or 6 Feet 6.6 Inches?

the definition of an inch since the 1960s is 25.4 mm, and by that definition, 2 m is very slightly more than 6′ 6.74″.

Folks, I’m staying out of this one. I was the last kid in my fourth-grade class to understand long division, and it’s been downhill from there. Numbers baffle and bore me; I’ve posted Daniel’s point solely in the interests of accuracy. Please don’t deluge me with studies on this topic and your brilliant analysis thereof: the good Lord didn’t bless me with a mathematical brain, so I cannot appreciate your genius.
