|Subject: ||Re: Can SQL do this? (Facetious quip)|
Look, it's axiomatic that SQL can do anything. The only snag is that
very few people know the relevant code...
One foot is exactly twelve inches.
One inch is exactly 2.54 centimeters.
One centimeter is exactly on one-hundredth of a meter.
One meter is exactly 1/299,792,458 of the distance traveled by light
in a vacuum in one second of time.
One second is the time required for 9,192,631,770 ticks of an atomic
beam clock running at the radiant frequency corresponding to the
transition between the hyperfine levels of the ground state of
the cesium-133 atom.
