: : Anybody can tell me what is the quantitative measure of an ORDER OF MAGNITUDE? Or is there one?

: : Thanx in advance.

: I am under the probably mistaken impression that this term comes to us from astrophysics. Stars are classified by magnitude, I believe. Then again, I am attracting a growing reputation for defiantly choosing to labour under my false apprehensions, even once it's been conclusively proven to me that I am wrong.

Dear Fallen one,

Surely it's the measure of champagne? As for your misapprehentions, they are only "missed" when you don't share them.
