Dong [Aug. 28th, 2007|08:03 pm]

Did you know the "dong" in a unit of measurement for length in Vietnam? It was news to me, as was the strange fact that I, being just over 6 feet tall am also around 79 dongs tall.

Oh by the way.... I slipped in the shower and banged my head.

I thought that the Dong was the unit of currency in Vietnam:

Apparently it is also a unit of length.

1 meter = 42.857 142 857 dong [Vietnam]

I am not about to google "dong" and "length".

I can't find anything on Google about the dong being a unit of length.

If you're 79 dong, that makes you worth about a quarter of a penny!

OUCH! What did you bang your head on? The side wall? Good job you didn't go the other way. Have you got a bath mat?
