Published May 06, 2011Remember how boring math class was? Grams, metres, joules... the concept behind each unit of measurement is so abstract. How can you visualize a kilometre? If only there was a better way to cope with a gruelling equation. Well, a new website centred on diminutive dark lord Glenn Danzig hopes to make number crunching a whole lot easier, not to mention a lot more metal.
What's That in Danzigs? has turned the heavy music icon into a new, bare-chested measurement you can apply to problem solving. Plus, it just sounds cool. Would you rather say you made record time on your 100-metre dash, or say you just ran a hearty 62 Danzigs? It kind of makes you sound as if you outran a whole fleet of the guy!
Regrettably, some of your weakling numbers don't even warrant a Danzig. You may have pounded back six litres of Raspberry Schweppes over the weekend, but that doesn't even qualify as a Danzig. If your beanpole physique weighs in at a measly 68 kilograms, don't even bother converting your lack of girth to Danzigs (the unit only registers on the plus side around 84 kilograms).
Whether you're in math class with your iPhone nearby, or just have some spare time at home, why not crunch numbers metal-style for a bit?
