The helen (abbreviated hn) is the imperial unit of measurement for female beauty, now superseded by the metric bella

Pulchritude is expressed as a fraction of 1000, denoting the number of ships that could be launched by the beauty of a given woman.

This system was originated by Christopher Marlowe in 'Doctor Faustus'.
"Maxim readers voted Olivia Wilde as the hottest woman in the world - therefore by definition she is rated at 1000 helen"

The metric unit of female beauty, abbreviated bl.

Supersedes the imperial helen (qv).

Expressed on a decimal scale from 0.00 (utterly repulsive and cock-crinkling) to 1.00 (the Platonic ideal of female beauty).

After the Italian word for beautiful (qv).
"Wow, Bella, you are so amazingly hot. I'd have to rate you at .98 bl"

"How come I don't score 1.00 bl when the damn system is named after me?"

"Because you've just woken up, there's mascara in your ear, your hair looks like a practical joke and there's a pillowcase stuck to your chin. Still adorable though."

"Fair enough. Now run me a bath of ass's milk and fetch costly breakfast items."
