I wrote "pounds and ounces" specifically so people couldn't make a sterling joke. Damn you, Tim!
But sterling is sold by the once....
Which is why I didn't make it the first time around. I wanted to.
Troy ounces, maybe. People aren't measured in Troy weights, even if they are as good as gold.
You may enjoy a rendition of the QI klaxon instead.
They still haven't found a way to hard quantify the kilogram?? Haven't they been working on that for decades now?
Dark matter keeps screwing up the calculations.
Info from the NPL:
I thought of that, but I'm pretty sure there's no Tahoe municipality on the Nevada side. Both Tahoe City and South Lake Tahoe are on the California side of the border.
Yeah, the community on the Nevada side is cleverly named "Stateline."
I might have learned something today, or maybe I heard it wrong. UK posters can help me out.
There was this Brit on TV being interviewed; being asked about how May reacts to D'ump. That's not important, but the woman said, I think, that May "Just flows with it." That's not really important either, except that the reason I'm not sure about what she said is that if she said "flows" she said it so it rhymes with "cows." Is that normal?
In my experience, not in the slightest.
So you normally go with the flow like the rest of us, and only Theresa May flows with the cows? Maybe she wasn't saying flow at all. I wonder if I can find a link to that interview...
Were the cows running through wheat fields?
fl-ow-s and c-ow-s?? (as in "ow that hurt"???)
Not something I would ever use, but wonder if it's some London accent (or is that dialect?)?
You....are....awesome! I had given up on finding this, or someone finding it for me. You're the best.
She may be flowing with cows as an ex-PM soon, if this no-confidence vote goes (gows?) ahead...
Yeah. It was like flowers without the -ers. She was some former official aide from May's office and she was on CNN, but it seems like her interview wasn't significant enough to make it to their website.
Gow with the flow, baby, gow with the flow.
To a 'Murcan ear a cockernee pronunciation might sound like that.
Separate names with a comma.
