So that's what that is!

Here are some things that I have always wondered about but never bothered to look up (until now).

1. How far is a "klick?"

2. According to proper etiquette, where do you put your napkin when you leave the table mid-meal?

3. What side of a boat is referred to as "starboard" and what side is "port?"

4. How much is a gold bar worth?


1. In military terms, a "klick" is a distance of one kilometer (or .62 miles).
2. On your chair (NOT on the table).
3. Starboard is right, port is left.
4. The standard gold bar held and traded internationally by central banks and bullion dealers is the Good Delivery bar with a 400 oz. (25 lbs.) nominal weight. As of today's date, one of these bars would be worth $550,700.
