  1. Perry! A marathon is 26 miles, 385 yards, which is 26.2185 miles! For most of your conversions, it doesn’t make much difference, but you’re short 30 metres, and those 30 metres matter!

  2. Steve, you must’ve crossed it a bunch of times right?

    Greg, you are correct! But I still weigh the same amount as 44 chickens.

    Vanilla, that’s cool.
