That’s quite abstract for the Police. While we are on the subject of string, I’ve noticed that you like measuring things. Does size matter?
Well, the other reason for being at St Paul’s was to demonstrate the scale of Everest, like they do in old encyclopaedias, by taking something big that is manmade and measuring it against something really big that is made by nature. I like using cultural things to try to measure more unfathomable things, like measuring Niagara with a teaspoon, as if you were trying to ladle out a waterfall. I actually had a teaspoon melted down and made into a wire the height of Niagara Falls.
