Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Meter"

The meaning of "Meter" in various phrases and sentences

Q: I am a good meter

(I'm not sure 'meter' is a right word because I listened it but I think someone said 'I'm a good meter or I'm a good half meter' about height.) ne anlama geliyor?
A: It's sort of a slang. It's usually used to compare, but it can also be used alone.
It's usually to do with size or length.
It almost means like, "at least" but usually means "a little more than" in a way.

e.g.
1)
I am a good 1km away from you right now.
=I am atleast/a little more than 1km away from you right now.

2)
I am a good 5 centimetres taller than you.
=I am atleast 5 centimetres taller than you(probably more).

3)
That building is a good 50 metres tall.
=That building is atleast 50 metres tall.


I would say that "a solid..." is more common.

e.g.

1)
I ate a solid 1kg of meat today.
=I ate atleast 1kg of meat today.

(be careful though, solid can also mean firm or hard)
Q: B.S. meters ne anlama geliyor?
A: "b.s. meter" is part of an expression that means you think someone is not being honest.


"My b.s. meter is going off" = "I think you are lying or not telling the whole truth"


Is that what you mean?
