@Chaja: Rats, I knew someone was going to ask about 'imperial,' and I don't really know, that's why I only raised the question. Specifically, a pound is a lb. is .45 kg, that one's not a problem that I know of. But in other cases, I believe 'imperial' means 'non-US.' I'm kind of tired to mess with a long web search tonight, but for instance:
1.0 U.S. ton (short ton) = 2000 pounds
1.0 imperial ton (long ton or shipping ton) = 2240 pounds
1.0 metric tonne (tonne) = 1000 kilograms = 2205 pounds
1.0 US gallon = 3.79 liter = 0.833 Imperial gallon
1.0 imperial gallon = 4.55 liter = 1.20 US gallon
1.0 liter = 0.264 US gallon = 0.220 imperial gallonhttp://bioenergy.ornl.gov/papers/misc/energy_...
1 U.S. fluid ounce = 1/128 U.S. gallon = 1/16 U.S. pint
1 British imperial fluid ounce = 1/160 imperial gallon = 1/20 imperial pint
1 U.S. gallon (basic unit of liquid capacity in the United States) = 231 cubic inches
1 imperial gallon (basic unit of liquid capacity in some Commonwealth nations) = 277.4 cubic inches
1 U.S. bushel (basic unit of dry capacity in the United States) = 2,150.4 cubic inches
1 imperial bushel (basic unit of dry capacity in some Commonwealth nations) = 2,219.4 cubic incheshttp://www.exhibition-seeds.co.uk/information...
Now someone is going to ask what the difference between troy and avoirdupois is. And I hope someone else can answer, because I haven't the faintest.
So do you buy eggs in cartons of 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, or what? And do they keep better in the carton than in the egg rack? (-;
