Google is too useful for it's own good some times. I mean, you can actually get valid data with a query like this:
http://www.google.com/search?q=c+in+smoots+per+fortnight

For extra fun, look up Smoot (both the unit of measurement, and the person.) The irony of his story is amazing.

*L*  I have a friend named Smout, but people frequently pronounce his name as Smoot.  He's in physics, so maybe he'll appreciate his mispronounced name more?

You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
If this predicament seems particularly cruel,
consider whose fault it could be:
not a torch or a match in your inventory.
