YMMV / 38 Parrots

  • Memetic Mutation: "Measuring in parrots" has become a Russian idiom meaning measuring something with units that don't make any sense, often humourously compared to video graphics cards benchmarks. Also, the Russian version of Google Calculator accepts both "boa" and "parrot" as units and lets you measure, say, the radius of Earth in parrots.
