Dave's World sure is beautifully bizarre place, as Dave Moore proved yet again on this morning's show.

Dave lured us in with this sentence; "Your Mickey is tiny", but his meaning was equally as startling.

Did you know that a "mickey" is a unit of measurement for the speed and movement direction of a computer mouse?

The term was coined by computer scientists, who named it after Mickey Mouse, and is defined as: "the smallest detectable movement of a mouse cursor on a screen."

The length of a mickey changes depending on the equipment being tested, but is generally about 0.1. So now for ya!

And the trivia master also has another fact about decades that will hurt your brain.
