what? no Helens

    beauty =!= H
    Helen := H      // The beauty required to launch a 1000 ships
                    // A mH is the beauty required to launch 1 ship



Wouldn't that be a mH (milli-Helen)? A micro-Helen would only launch 1/1,000th of a ship, so perhaps a kayak or life raft.


yep, my mistake, will fix


If we're going with these...

  1 Potrzebie := 2.263348517438173216473 mm // thickness of Mad issue #26
  1 donkeypower := 1/3 horsepower


It's also missing the batman unit - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman_(unit)
