Hey endless would you ride her?

Stan, your probelm is keeping the ex around, not having her as a passenger. If you wold have gotten rid of her this wouldn't even be an issue.

it's pretty easy ... for a french guys, so i will try to explain ....
volume, weight and capacity are all linked one to the other. and water freezes at  zero degres celcius.

for instance, one liter of water, weigh one kilo and will fit in 1 cubic decimeter.
1000 liter weight one ton (1000 kilos) and will fit in 1 square meter. 
 
but what about for me when I moved in the US ... people talking in cup, in fluid ounce, in gallon, in inch, in foot, in yard, in mile, in pound, in degres farenheigt (i don't know how to spell that fu**ing word  :-X )

Well, my car gets 73 Furlongs to the Horsehead and that's the way I like it!

1.6 kilometers per mile.  Roughly one and a half times the distance in kilometers.

0.45 kilograms per pound.  Roughly half the mass in kilograms.

I don't understand why we're NOT on the metric system.  We're one of the only countries that doesn't widely accept the SI measurement.  It's simple to use, and even simpler to scale to larger or smaller units.  Ever try going from pounds to grams?  What about quarts to ounces?  Square feet to acres?

pounds to grams????  Were you thinking pounds to ounces?  A pound is 16 ounces.  There are 43 560 sq ft in an acre.  There are 32 ounces in a quart.

An acre is 1 furlong long, and 4 rods wide.

660 x 66 feet = 43560 sq ft


Besides that, the Imperial system rules.  An inch is the width of your thumb.  You can take a foot, and divide by 2, 3, or 4, or 6 and get an even measurement.  Try that with 304.8 millimeters.  Unless you are lucky any division of a measurement by other that 2 will result in a fraction, and 1/2 of the divisions by 2 will result in fractions.  Base 10 is horrible for units of measure.  Now if they had used base 12 it would have been a different story.

metric is great for engineers.  It SUCKS for people.  How much is in a juice box? About 8 ounces, easy.  In metric? 226 milliliters WTF?  Which is easier?  I can't imagine how tough it would be to try to cook with metric.  I would go insane trying to get the right number of grams.

Heck, even Celsius sucks, the divisions are too big, end up going to fractions to get useful information.
