Topic - Things we don't have standard units for?

mkean - on 19 Feb 2013
The metric/imperial wranglings on here made me think, there are loads of different units for all sorts of measures but some things have remained unquantified. So what do we not have units for that needs standardising?

I think we need an accepted measure of the suffering or trauma associated with an activity. So for instance running more than 5 marathons in 5 days is pretty silly and afterwards you'll probably say "never again" but as the time goes by and you forget how bad it was eventually it'll start to seem like a good idea again. I'm proposing the "Darwin Month", so an activity that you can't even think about doing for 3 years afterwards is a 36 Darwin Month activity.

Any other units that the world needs?
