Sigh.  This nonsense is getting hard to believe.  Tomas, you earn a big fat
"Duh!", again.

No, it's not.  Check you're 8th grade math.  Any non-zero value to the power
of 0 is 1.  This applies to 10, being as how it's a non-zero value and all.
So 10^0 = 1, 10^1 = 10, 10^2 = 100, do you see the pattern yet?

This reminds me of the Monty Python skit "Ow, there's a bit of brain lodged

Now you're raising meters to the -4th power.  The units aren't even right by
a factor of the 5th power of length.
