I must admit I got my idea from a unit used for feminine pulchritude when I was in university. The unit was the “Helen,” based on the “face that launched a thousand ships.” One milli-Helen would be enough to launch one ship; a negative milli-Helen would send a ship back to port! LOL
LOL. Sounds a lot like our “1 to 10 on the ten scale.” IOW, if they were already a 10, how far up on the 10 scale were they? 10.01 or 10.10?
(It was in my Ohio State days. Lots of 2’s. Lots of 8’s. A ridiculous number of 10’s. Sry if that offends any women Freepers, but us straight guts can’t help it. BTW, personality really could bring someone from a 7 or 8 to a 10.?? Easily.)
