    • In the Marines, they use “jacks past chow”, an estimate of how many times the average E-3 will have jerked it since the last meal they ate. This allows even the simplest Marine to comprehend complex things like numbers, as this information is always on a Marine’s mind.

    • I think something along the lines of using the amount of time it takes to cook bacon(or steak) as a basic unit. Comparable to about 10 minutes. Then for larger ranges of time chicken. Even bigger, turkey.
