Ryan says: Oh, hey, I came up with a pretty good line last night on the way back from Red Wing.

Ryan says: I was talking about the hard drive capacity of my new computer, and I said it was half a Petabyte.

Ryan says: Mel had never heard the term Petabyte before, so I went down the line of storage terminology.

Caroline says: riveting, as always

Ryan says: Bit, byte, megabyte, gigabyte, petabyte.

Ryan says: Then computing processor speed: megaflop, gigaflop, and petaflop. . . which sounds like a failed child molester.

Ryan says: Huh?

Ryan says: Huh?

Caroline says: that was the line?

Ryan says: Yeah.

Caroline says: meeeeeeeeeeh

Ryan says: Well, we had a good laugh.

Caroline says: maybe funnier if delivered in person

Caroline says: because reading it doesn't have the same delivery

Ryan says: Yeah, when spelled out, petaflop looks more like a failed animal rights activist.

Caroline says: See? Exactly.

Ryan says: But, when you SAY it, it comes out "Pedoflop."

Caroline says: Which is funnier.
