do you know?
it's not 10,000 years
How long is a piece of string?
does anyone know without looking it up?
i did look it up.
It can be a few years or a few centuries...its just the length of time something definitive lasts...
I don't think it's a set number of years but rather a period of time distinguished from other periods of times by, er... something distinguishing.
depends on the era concerned.
and it doesn't have to be really long either, e.g.
Nazi era is 1933-1945 - 12 years
Ooh, I know that one, four and three quarter inches ...
For example, the time period known as the "60s" (1960s) is an era known for the loosening of social standards and more liberal politics. But it didn't really start in 1960, at least according to a history professor of mine. According to him it went from the assasination of Kennedy in 1963 to the end of combat operations in Vietnam in 1973.
An era is 214 years, then.
Depends if it is a geological era or a calendar era.
An era only lasts until it's corrected.
well era is a precise formula used to determine how many runs a pitcher gives up per game.
Era lasts 18 or 36 wash cycles, depending on which bottle you buy.
Not really. Both are entirely dependent on a series of events; although, geological eras do have a tendency to be longer.
Any ERA is fine, as long as it stays under 3.50
Isn't an 'era' something to do with the time the zodiac takes to complete a rotation or something?? I'm sure I read that somewhere...25,000 years..?
I dunno...maybe that's an "age"
Ah the classic comic classified ad. "FOR SALE - Piece of string: Length, as described"
Whos ERA was 10,0000?!!! that dude needs some HGH
Actually, to be technical, an era is the number of runs given up every nine innings (or a projected number of runs for every nine innings). I don't think we'd want to see how many runs the fat toad would give up in a whole game.
I meant per nine. Thanks for correcting me!
I haven't heard that name spoken in a really long time! Brings back horrific memories! Make it stop!
you forget tot mention it is EARNED runs so errors that allow a run to score dont count
Twice the length it is from one end to the middle.
Well this thread has certainly stayed on topic.
How's about we just get the answer now, since we're all just engaging in pointless banter?
Was an era not fully defined in an episode of Friends?
