Nano-Warhols of Fame in the Lounge
I think this should become a recognized unit of Fame-Time.

One Warhol = 15 minutes of fame. To be more specific, maybe would should say that 1 Warhol is equal to 15 minutes of international fame. I've tried to come up with some rough examples. feel free to correct my "calculated" examples (I probably slip a decimal place or two) and please contribute more. You do not have to show your math.

Deka-Warhol = 10 Warhols. Approximate examples: Vice-President of the United States shoots you in the face, the "Agony of defeat" guy on ABC's "Wide World of Sports" (replays matter).

One Centi-Warhol = 1/100 of a Warhol. That could be 9 Seconds of international fame, or 15 minutes of fame among one percent of the current world population (excluding infants). Approximate examples Standing behind the Pope for Christmas Mass, short testimony at a celebrity trial, one appearance on late-night network TV, Olympic medal in a sport that very few people think about except during the broadcast.

One Milli-Warhol = 1/1000 Warhol. 90 seconds of fame among one percent. Approximate examples: Indicted for fraud (Not more that $10 million, not less than $5 million).

One Micro-Warhol = 1/1,000,000 Warhol. 90 seconds of fame among about 60,000 people or 9 seconds among 600,000. Approximate examples: Very clever upload to You-Tube, "Play of the day".

One Nano-Warhol = 1-billionth Warhol. Approximate examples: This post.

One Pico-Warhol = 1-trillionth Warhol. Approximate examples: Think about yourself for 0.15 seconds.
