The Man From UNCLE

My sister-in-law (Mrs. Wh00ps’ sister) gave birth at 19:04 to a beautiful baby girl, 7lbs 10oz. And no, I’m not going to tell Eu what that is in metric.

  1. Aaaaah!

    Odd that Oz has been metric for ages but babies still get talked about in Imperial. I’m sure the hospital writes down 3.415 kilos or 3,415 grams but it’s a mouthful, isn’t it? Far more natural to say X lb Y oz. Nobody here seems to drive for kilometres and kilometres or says that something is kilometres away either, even when they don’t really have any grasp of what a mile is. The metric system might be great for precision measurements but shithouse for conversation.
