Today, I had to explain to my boyfriend that miles are the same distance for everything. He thought that human miles were different than mouse miles, because they're smaller. He's 34. FML

Damn, so when that mouse was bragging to me about running several miles, he was talking about ACTUAL miles?! That IS impressive.

If you thought a little longer instead of trying for first comment you would have found some.

I can kind of see where he's coming from..

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?

It may be difficult to digest but.. There is no such thing as human and mouse miles.

36- And now I bet you'll tell me something like there's no difference between mouse pounds and human pounds.... pffff

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

Nautical miles are slightly longer than regular miles, just so you know #45. About 1.15 miles in fact.

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.

Please don't breed with him... Smh.

Well I'm sure 3 mile feels waaaay longer to a mouse who's on foot

In human miles.. Yes.. But in the measurement unit for mice. It might differ habibi

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.

But a mile is a measure of distance, so time doesn't matter at all.
