 Planck length 
  The planck units are the planck units, ignoring minor jiggling factors, and they are getting more and more used as the years go by. 
  If the planck length is the smallest measureable distance, and that distance smaller than this would have no meaning, then any line between two points perhaps has a finite number of points between the end points, measured in planck length units, each "point" becoming a unit one planck length in size. 
  Indeed as it happens the formula for the planck unit of area is slightly simpler than for length, and so the area is "closer" to the fundamental constants c, hbar, and G. Sorry this is so vague but just wanted to say that your intuition is not alone about this.
