Well, this one got lost in all the corrections, but here it goes again:
Do you want the whole 8.2296 meters?

Bert

==========
Sometimes when governors, heads of state, etc. from other places visit Texas, our governor presents them with a 37.8 liter hat.

Charles

He liked it so much he went back 1/15th minute.

Do they belong in a 33.814 ounceary journal?

Have you heard of a mineral called literz?

Is any of this 0.035274 ouncematical?

That’s 125 gallons & I’m not lion. That’s enough cat litter to fertilize a whole farm

My guess is that 454 grams is the weight of 473 litters of a kitty named Milly!

Do we decimal system?

Alex

==============

This is an example of how a proverb or cliche would change if we switched to the metric system.

There are 473 ml in a pint. There are 454 grams in a pound.

Other examples would be "A miss is as good as 1.6 kilometers," or  "28 grams of prevention is worth 454 grams of cure."

I was hoping to get other examples.
