lol man...that's awesome. it's true that Standard measurements are a damn mess. 12 inches in a foot (whose foot did they measure?), 3 feet in a yard, 5280 feet in a mile, which is 1760 yards.

volume measurements make even less sense, especially when you consider than a cup of fluid ounces doesn't measure the same volume as a regular cup. The whole teaspoon, tablespoon thing. Good lord.

Temperature too. 32 degrees Fahrenheit is the freezing point. Why isn't it 0? Because 0 was the coldest it got in London when the scientist was developing the scale. Lol

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.
