Y'all are familiar with the unit of measure called a "milliHelen", right? That's the amount of beauty required to launch one ship. Elf asks about another unit:

Your task, should you decide to accept it, is to come up with a definition for the word milligoatse.

However, if you're not familiar with "goatse", please don't go searching for it. There are things that cannot be unseen.

A milligoatse is the amount of disgust required to destroy one brain cell.

My favorite (that I concocted myself in Physics class in high school):

the light-year-slug

It's an amount of effort (like a foot-pound) so vast that it hardly seems worth it to do anything at all.

Is a milliPicture = one word?

Over in Elf's thread I made the less witty than I'd hoped observation that:

At some point we're going to want Google to implement this in their units converter, so we need to define a few things. Like how many milligoatses in a centitubgirl?

To which tehrasha replied:

Both terms would be measures of volume, but the difference may only be a matter of symantics. A pessimist would see a given volume as half empty, measured in goatse, while the optimist... [mental horror redacted]

So how many millipictures in two cents?

Dan: Actually, milligoatses are diameter, while centitubgirls are volume. Therefore you'd need to measure centitubgirls in milligoatses^2/sec.

Ow. I should know better than to do things that'll evoke these sorts of mental images...
