    I think accuracy at sub 1 ohm is pretty bad. If the few hundred milliohms your leads usually add are an issue, the meter is out of its useful range. Try putting the probes into another meter and...

    He is stress relieving the bed so the twist stays permanent and he can get his pack of smokes back out from under the corner foot.
