The thing that resonated with me was the idea that a unit could have 2 or more items in it. I never used to think of a unit that way. To me, a unit was always made up of only 1 thing. So, It becomes sort of a brain-bender. How can I put together a unit to count – but then, if you expect someone else to use the same unit, you must explicitly tell them what the unit is comprised of.
Very interesting and enlightening!
