"Eight meters"

Edit: So apparently "meters" is in the genitive case here and nouns genrally have 's's or 'es's added to them in the singular genitive but not in the plural.

That's a bit misleading.

Oh, I didn't know about genitive stuff. But it looks like nouns generally get an 's' for genitive singular and none for genitive plural, so I stand by my sarcastic thanks to German.
