here we have a full-scale European trying to make me happy. Well, I guess it
didn't work but thanks for trying Bernhard. I think we must start a new
discussion group: DECIMAL-l and this will ONLY be open to decimalists
(decimal-list....get the picture.......?) and metrists. We will only be allowed
to speak the decimal languages (there are several) and we must rise up to a
boycot of the infamous Ouncists, Stoneists, Fahrenhitters, Inchers, Gallonists
ate., etc. etc. Errr, am I getting carried away here a little on a list of aroid
nuts? Sorry folks, will try to behave better next time.
My dear Lord,
you have my full compasion in
your desperation about these units dating back probably to the mediaeval ages.
Or are they even of celtic ???
However, dear Lord, maybe I can give a rough idea about stones.
About two decades ago I was run
over by a mastiff dog; luckily not attacked, since it was just a puppy of
about one year.
This dog weight 10
stone seven, that was and is converted to kg about 67 kg!!! (If i remember it
correctly ... or was it rather the weight that dog would reach, when grown up?
Can't remember exactly..) I gues the seven of the 10 stone seven was some kind
of lb; no idea, if imperial, american or celtic lbs. And, if I am not wrong
again, 12 lbs made up one of these stones.
So my dear Lord, did you get it?
But surely some US aroider,
faintly acquainted with the decimal/metric system will bring some light into
(grown up with the decimal and
metric system and probably too simple minded to see through these other
systems :-( .......)
