'That's a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string"?'

FYI A friend of mine will take you up on this question with the response
that a piece of string is approximately one metre long. Apparently he
read a survey somewhere which found that one metre was the average
length  cut and used for tying or otherwise. Unfortunately I cannot
provide the reference.
