Imperial measure

Imperial measure

Postby richardlionheart » Sat Aug 11, 2018 6:42 pm

Wonder if the Uk will revert back to good old Imperial measure after Brexit. For example, the fuel consumption of my car is just over 633,500 Rods to the Hogshead, or if you like, itll go one Light Year on 160,489,497,237,284 imperial tablespoons of fuel.

Any other measurements you'd like to see return.... ?

I do believe at the time Yellow Stilletos were also compulsory, as was knowledge of how to dance round a pile of handbags.
