Rudy's Useless Trivia Question #17:
How many Furlongs
Are in a Half-Marathon?
Pictured (above):Is Albert Einstein Cycling“104-Furlongs” to his “E=MC2“ Destination.
So why ask this question where Alex Trebek would consider "Useless" to ask?
Well, two weeks ago I was a 'Groupie' for a couple of L/T Friends who ran the Dallas Half-Marathon and wondered about the Furlongs-to-Miles conversion.
But the Burning question is:
Should we "never commit to memory what you can find in a book"?
I guess the answer all depends if 104 Furlongs is any value to you besides spectating a horse-race or being an “Einstein” as a Jeopardy contestant.
Even though Albert Einstein himself quoted that:
“We should never commit to memory what (we) can find in a book” ;)
