While roaming the 'net I came upon one of the geekiest, yet coolest, cars
around. From there, I don't know how, but I came upon a forum making fun of it. I lost the link due to the damn blue screen of death.
"I heard it did the 1/4 mile in 1 parsec."
Then I thought, isn't that a measure of distance? Then someone wrote:
"Parsec - A unit of astronomical length based on the distance from Earth at which stellar parallax is one second of arc and equal to 3.258 light-years, 3.086 × 1013 kilometers, or 1.918 × 1013 miles. 1/4 mile - 1320 ft"
Nerds... HAR But then in Star Wars 4: A New Hope, Han Solo says to Obi-Wan something like, "It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs." Which confuses me, was he just a BSing scumbag like his character is supposed to be or was there really some shortcut making it 12. I think he was just a showoff...
