I thought to myself and commented afterwards, "If that's what that's called, wouldn't it be measuring speedos instead of… speed?" For the record, I'd like to provide you a list of things that I'd personally like to nothave to deal with on a daily basis, let alone measure (in no particular order):

I think things pretty much speak for themselves in that list. :)
