Doing What I'm Told  
I just had the funniest conversation with a disembodied voice about the rain that continues to pour here in Atlanta.

It raised some questions:

1) Does anyone have any plans or experience building a really large watercraft? In particular, I'm interested in waste disposal and ballast systems.

2) I was asked to gather 8 of every creature (1 het male, 1 het female, 2 gay male, 2 gay female, 1 transgendered male to female and 1 transgendered female to male). How can I tell?

3) What the heck is a cubit, anyway?

4) Should I tell the newspapers?

According to one definition ...
... a biblical cubit is the measure from the elbow to the tip of the farthest finger, that is, about 18 inches or 1/2 a meter.

Re: According to one definition ...
That's fun. I hope the elbow is standardised to either DIN or ISO or you will have one netherworld of trouble with your measurements. I don't think I'd trust an ark built on the measurements of varying elbows.
Is the a standard elbow like the original "meter" stored in Paris?
Is it a male or a female elbow, I wonder? And there we go again: het male lebow, gay male elbow, het female elbow, gay female elbow...??
