Happy World Metrology Day!

I hope that you all had a wonderful World Metrology Day. Today marks the anniversary of the signing of the Meter Convention, which created the International Bureau of Weights and Measures.

The theme for this year's celebration is measurement in sports. I discovered this (and the existence of World Metrology Day) back in October when I wrote a critique of the techniques used to measure downs in American football.
Anyhow, I hope you're all enjoying the fruits of metrology today as well as every day!
