The Mech Mice Measurements, M.M.M, is a form of measurements invented by Mech Mice in the medieval period. The creators wanted to establish a firm measuring system for the Colony, and so they based it off of the average width of a mouse's tail. M.M.M is based entirely on the tail, a measurement that is equal to 3 inches (76.2 millimeters). The tail is the most commonly used measurement; however, in recent centuries new measurements have been made for smaller and larger objects.
Currently, there are five types of M.M.M.: the centum tail, decem tail, tail, decuma tail, and the parva centum tail. The measurements were named after Latin words relating to the measurements needed.
M.M.M. are measured with tail sticks. Tail sticks are perfectly level, straight pieces of material that stretch out for a tail and are 1/3 of a tail in width. They can be found in nearly every home, and are used commonly. Tape measures are clever devices that can extend up to one decem tail. Some extend even longer.
