I recognize that there already exists a colorful but imprecise English system of units—e.g., the ‘goof’, the ‘screwup’, etc, ......into the realm of profanity. Though highly descriptive these units are basically qualitative. True failures deserve to be measured.Any ideas on what the units would be called?

We've adopted a method at my workplace called the "Stone scale" after a coworker who has the worst luck imaginable. The screw-ups range from a minor to a major, with two or three less defined stages in between.
