Maybe he has to Pee really bad and is not sure whether it's going to be in Metric or Imperial. :biggrin:

As far as I'm concerned that is precisely what was behind it all in the first place.

I am going to challenge you to buy a 5 Liter jug of Oil and try pouring it into an empty 5 Quart Oil container and see what happens.
A word of advice, don't try it over your living room carpet. I predict that there will be a mess.

In fairness, he did use "imperial gallon" elsewhere, so I am assuming he means imperial quarts, and the imperial quart is larger than a litre and the litre is larger than the US quart. Which of course is part of the problem as when someone says gallon, quart, or pint are they talking about imperial or US?

Do away with METRIC? How about we do away with the fake news media known as Castanet that keep fudging the numbers!

I'm stoned too. I can also drink from a hogshead, but my mead keeps spilling out the eye holes.
Pleased to mead you Kelvin.
