You Learn Something New Every Day!

I learned today that a mickey wasn’t just some drink someone gave you to knock you out so they could steal your wallet.

Here’s what a mickey really is according to Webopedia:

mickey

A mickey is a unit of measurement for the speed and movement direction of a computermouse. The speed of the mouse is the ratio between how many pixels the cursor moves on the screen and how many centimeters you move the mouse on the mouse pad. The directional movement is called the horizontal mickey count and the vertical mickey count. One mickey is approximately 1/200th of an inch.

Cool, huh? :)

Learn something. It won’t hurt you none. I promise.

Have a great weekend wherever in the world you may find yourself!

Later…
