Yeah. I mean, if you redefine 1 foot to be the approximate size of a mouse's foot, then redefine all the other units proportionally... Totally makes sense. On a completely unrelated note, I have never heard the term 'mouse mile' or any other animal's mile. Where the hell did that though even come from?

I see what he's saying if mice measured things it would be different like monkey miles, dog miles, elephant miles or bird miles Is nautical miles the same as land miles? kinda like Europe uses the metric system and US doesn't

I mean, our miles are roughly based on the Roman mile, which was meant to be 1,000 paces. I suppose a mouse mile would be 1,000 mouse paces. It might even be minimally useful, in that a (human) mile walk for a person is not much in terms of effort, but for a mouse it's an epic journey. That said, I'm not sure how one comes to the conclusion that this is an actual, practical, measurement. Like most FMLs, I'd love to have some context to this one.

I didn't say it isn't still 3 miles. I'm just saying if a turtle and a person had to walk 3 miles the human would finish faster. Both still did three miles just one would do it faster.
