"How tall is Mt Everest?"

Comic Type: Everquest II | Posted: Thursday December 24th, 2009 by Woody - [ Size: 600x450 ]
Some scientists are measuring how tall Mt Everest is.

I have to wonder....WHY?

They are disputing about a difference of about 15 feet...out of about 29,017 feet. A difference of 0.0005%.

To put that into perspective, lets say you were driving down the highway. The speed limit is 70 MPH. You get pulled over for driving 70.035 MPH. Huh?

Perhaps I'm just a little over-analizing the over-analizing, but how does a difference of 15 feet make THAT big of a difference? What possible difference to anything could that make?

It's not like we are making Mt. Everest a hat, and need to know what size.
