    One problem though....grams are units of mass, not weight.

    EDIT - In America, there are 16 ounces to a pound. But in England they have 14 pounds to a stone.

    Quite right too. Although Europe seems to have become a lot more like the US in recent times, what with a single currency and having member "states" overseen by a main government.

    You're right, that is a problem. Who the **** would use weight? Mass is clearly the better measurement.

    Anyone using pulleys or high-tension lifting tools and suspension platforms: engineers, construction workers, mechanics, fishermen, etc.

    Does this mean the whole day's been cancelled? Is it a four day week?

    Doesn't matter anyway. Your argument is moot. Pounds are used for both mass and weight: LBM and LBF.

    Plus, no one in a field of any merit uses weight because it varies.

    I like being in love with someone who shares my apathy toward this holiday.

    Add us to this list. Although, I did concede & get her the gift she asked me to pick up: EXORCIST on blu ray.

    To be fair, I am grateful there is a note on the calendar to remind me to love my wife, though.

    I have yet to find someone who loves beheading martyrs on this holy day as much as I do. :(
