You do realize that Britain is a member of the worlds largest Military Alliance, and Im not talking NATO. Its the Commonwealth with 52 Nations in military and trade alliances with Britain. To name a few , Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and India. Lotta guns my friend, lotta guns.

This could be very interesting if it ever happened.

I am sitting here trying to imagine someone like my father sitting properly and having a proper High Tea. The teacup would look like a thimble in his hands and I do not think that he knows how to sit up straight. LOL

Roundabouts...anyone ever hear what happens at the ones in New Jersey. I get scared whenever I go to my sister-in-law's house. We have to try to get through one on Route 70 outside of Cherry Hill. TOO SCARY!!

I for one am totally confused by metric conversion. I have never been able to grasp the formulas. Thank goodness for the internet and the sites that do it for you.

John Cleese is just too funny at times.

Faerydreamer;

Metric is easy if you take shortcuts are aren't to concerned about accuracy.
For Kilometres to miles multiply by 6
For miles to Kilometers divide by 6
For metres to feet divide by 3.3
For feet to metres multiply by 3.3
For weight its 2.2 lb to a kg.
500 gr. is close enough to a lb.
2.5 cm is an inch so is 25mm.
Temp. is 0 C. is 32F
10 C. is 50 F
16C is 61F
20C is 72F
37C is 98.6 F.
And -40 C is -40 F.
Now isn't that easy. It only took me 10 years to learn and thats because I'm an Old Fart and I cheat and carry a little conversion chart with me. rolleyes.gif angel_not.gif

Harlot;

If you are talking about the English Pound well the old Sterling system is gone and now its decimal like ours. 100 pence (pennies) in a pound. Weights and measures are different also As we use metric in Canada our liquid measurement is in Litres which is 4.5 Litres to the gal. You also have to remember that there is a difference between a imperial gallon( that we once used)and a U.S. gallon. Imperial gallon was about a quart larger than an American gallon or 5 U.S. quarts made up an Imperial gallon of 4 quarts. The American quart is closer in size to a Litre. Volume is in Cubic centimetres, cubic metres and Litres. It really is confusing I know but the day will come when America will have to switch to Metric as it is the only large country in the world that doesn't use it. My cheat sheet isn' to accurate because in reality a Kilometre is 5/8ths of a mile or .625. 100km/hr is equal to 62.5 miles /hr. When Canada changed over 30 odd years ago it drove everybody nuts for a long time. Now it's second nature. Guess Napoleon is doing a little Jig as the French system is used world wide. biggrin.gif

Camac.

PS. BTW it is pronounced Kill-o-metre not Kilometer.

Dear friends,

I don't want to affront someone here but I'm a littlebit amused about this discussion. For me it's a lot of fun to read it...

At the same time it seems I detected the real reasons for create all the confusions around the metric system.

The first reason is (sorry if I say that too hard) that lots of people in the U.S. aren't interested in use the Metric system.
The second reason is the try to compare both systems directly - it doesn't works. That's the same game to compare apples and oranges...

The Metric system is basing upon seven basic units, which are defined exactly:
1) for the length: Metre
2) for the mass: Kilogram
3) for the time: Second
4) for the electric current: Ampere - since 1954
5) for the thermodynamic temperature: Kelvin - since 1954
6) for the amount of substance: Mol - since 1971 and
7) for the luminous intensity: Candela - since 1954
(Click the underlined words to see the definitions)
All further measurements are derived from the basic units either by formulas or/and by prefixes
Too complicated? Okay, let's do an example by prefixes:
1 m (metre)=10dm = 100 cm = 1000 mm... and the opposite way
1 km = 1000m = 10000 dm = 100000 cm... (the measurements deka- and hekto- aren't really in use in this context)
once more but now by formula:
The volume is measured in m. That means length multiplicated with width multiplicated with high (I know that's public) But the result in metrical measurement is interesting:
1m= 1000dm (you can call dm as litre!)=1000000cm...
and in the opposite direction:
1cm=0.001dm (litre)=0.000001cm...
The comparing of speed is admittedly a bit more complicated because the time is measured by a base of 60.
The convetional measure for speed in metric system are m/s (metre per second) and km/h (kilometre per hour). The problem is that the measure of time by a base 10 is unusual. (somebody wasn't consequently there) Therefore applies: 1m/s = 3.6 km/h because a object moves in 1 minute (60 seconds) 60 meters and in 1 hour (60 minutes) 3600 meters. 3600 meters= 3.6 km.

To learn more about the Metric system click here

Maybe I completed the confusions totally... maybe not. I'm willing to discuss this theme furthermore - if you interested.

By the way, Robert Phoenix, I found a way to show you a size of a beermug and a slug in Metric system:

The slugs in the foreground contain 4cl (per slug) and the beermug in the middle of the pic contains 0,5l... biggrin.gif

The only thing I know, or want to know about the metric system is:
A litre is a quart and a swallow. My 2 litre growler gets me half a beer more than my half gallon one for the same price! biggrin.gif

Well, the heck with the metric system. I got a measuring tape, yard stick and a calculater. LOL
As to round a bouts, there is one in Albuquerque, sort of an experiment I guess and it does tend to confuse people here. We are used to going either north, south, east or west and a round a bout just goes round to some. It is actually quite funny to see.
I wonder what Mr Cleese thinks about our new President. I would really like to see something from him now.
Tea time would be okay by me. I work so hard doing what I do that I forget to take breaks and tea and cakes or shortbread at 4 would be lovely.
Blessings
