Bee BS: Preposterous- 9,000 sq. mile pyramid? (18) RE: BS: Preposterous- 9,000 sq. mile pyramid? 07 Oct 08

And yup, somebody, likely in a hurry and not familiar with metric abbreviations goofed. Common sense did not kick in, where a person would normally think 'That measurement looks ridiculous'.

Reminds me of the gas station attendant in Florida when I was a kid, looking musingly at the Manitoba car ahead of us and saying "That's a funny way to spell Montana". Why, yes, it is!Sometimes what you see is a horse of a different colour - not a zebra.
