The Aztecs Measured Distances In Arms

311

“In the Aztec empire, all distances, except walking distances, were measured in arms. The arms were put down end to end. It was the arms of the ancestors that was fetched from a house called the Arm House. If you had to measure a lath, you had to fetch the arms first. Now I think you got it. By the way, they thought that bushes became trees when they grew up.”
