So Scientific

How'd they measure hail before various golf/gum/base balls were invented? It's always the least scientific, and most hilarious, way of measuring things ever.

Just imagine a chief of staff walking into the Oval during a national hail emergency: "Sir, the hail was just upgraded to -basketball-. We're dispatching the 83rd infantry."

Post to your LJ, hippie!

It's easier to visualize peas and gumballs rather than centimeter measures.

There's no way in hell I'd go out in basketball hail.
