Heh, heh, this is completely off-topic, but you're still lucky that this
14 stone tuber weighs exactly 14 stones.
But, for example, in the US, the 1/2-inch thick plywood is really 31/64
inches thick, and a 2-by-4 inch piece of wood is really 1.5 by 3.5 inches,
unless it is rough 2x4, in which case it is exactly 2x4 :-)
