|1.||Go the extra kilometer|
(Verb) (GOE THUH EKSTRAH KEELOE MEETER) - A modified form of the phrase "go the extra mile". Definition - to perform somewhat above and beyond, but not to the extent of honorable recognition.

A thousand meters. A metric measurment used for mid to long distances. Approximately 5/8 or .625 of a mile.
A word which is - more often than not - BUTCHERED by alledgedly educated media speakers and now the general population.
The correct pronunciation is based on the FACT that the first part of the word is 'kilo' meaning 1000 and uttered as 'keelo.' The second part is 'meter', uttered 'meeter.' Thus the true pronunciation of this 'whopper' - give me a break - is 'keelomeeter' with the 'o' pronounced as it is generally uttered in the alphabet as opposed to the long 'awww' sound. The explanation for this is best offered through understanding prefixes and suffixes as well as investigating how other related metric measurements are uttered. 'Centimeter' for example is NOT uttered 'cent-IM-itter' just as 'millimeter' is NOT uttered 'mill-IM-itter.' These two words are usually NOT BUTCHERED and are found said properly as 'sEnta-mEEter' or 'sEnti-meeter' - with the 'i' pronounced as in the word 'it.' And 'milli-meeter' - 'i' pronounced as in the word 'it.' Or 'milleemeeter.'
A typical example of the BUTCHERING of the word 'kilometer':
Trucker Bob: "I drove 'bout 500 'killawwwmitters' til I stuck it in the sleeper. So tired, forgot I never had a sleeper and woke up in the godamned reefer...sheeet!
Fed-up etymologist: "Excuse me dude, but it is pronounced 'keelomeeter' *long 'o' as in 'toe'* could you please get it right and pass it on?"
Trucker Bob: *walking over to etymologist and dumping half eaten bacon and eggs on his head* "I don't take kindly to bein' corrected by some teacher-boy home-ohhh-secksull!"
Fed-up etymologist: *who also happens to be a runner-up in an ultimate fighting light-heavyweight t.v. championship, Ninjas the trucker in the throat and throws him INTO the floor while stating* "Perhaps today is a good day to learn shit-for-brains." *drags him outside and stuffs him into his reefer*.
A system of measurement, used by most of the world, based off of units that make logical sense, unlike the arbitrary US system people have grown accustomed to.
1 kilometer is 1000 meters, 1 meter is 100 centimeters, 1 centimeter is 10 millimiters.
1 mile is 1760 yards, 1 yard is 3 feet, 1 foot is 12 inches.
The United States government's hopes of switching to the metric system were dashed once they realized it would cost billions of dollars.
Me: Yeah we went 135 miles per hour for about 5 minutes, the cop was gone.
European cousin: Cool?
The Hobo Equation also known as the homeless equation is a simple equation in which to roughly estimate the number of Homeless individuals that exist in a given area. The equation as it stands today is H=0.0247P-.000862X^2 Where H is the number of Homeless people in one square kilometer P is the population of the given city and X is the distance in meters.
This Equation shown using a mock position 10km outside of a city of 3.5 million people
H= 0.0247*3 500 000 - 0.000862(10 000)^2 H= 86 450 - 86 200 H=250
Therefore there would be on average 250 homeless people per square kilometer 10km away from the centre of the city.
I.E. I used the hobo equation and there are 250 hobos in this area!
Klick is a common military term meaning kilometer when referring to distance. Its use became popular among US soldiers in Vietnam during the 1960s, although veterans of the war recall its usage as early as the 1950s. The term is of unknown origin. It is likely to be an example of condensed pronunciation or contraction of the term kilometer, although other theories exist.
We're about 2 klicks south of your position.
|6.||kilometer high club|
1) The metric equivalent of the mile high club usually associated with our European friends.
2) A derogatory commentary of any previous unsatisifying attempt at becoming a member of the mile high club.
Tom promised to fly me to Europe and make me a member of the mile high club but after landing I don't think we even made it to the kilometer high club!
