Ok! Ok! Whoever hits the dartboard first wins! Peace!!
*stumbles into the dartboard, head-first*
*Watches a dead-guy walk out the door wearing the pub dartboard ( at a jaunty angle ) on his head*
I fancy a 404 meself.
Ok another game of 404! Yay!
You buy a new dartboard and i'll let someone walk off with it and announce: "dartboard not found!"
Maybe a quick game of round the clock or 301 first though eh? :)
Feh, we can always do 418 and toss at the teapot.
Ok we'll give that a try!
When i've won we can have a game of 402. :)
Crap, some Red Lectroids just walked in. I will just escape in my Ford pickup.
As you make your getaway, remember that green means go, red means stop, and (as would be inferred by a visiting alien) yellow means "floor it."
Black means someone's turned the light out!
Who cares i need a beer!! Lucky i know my way around this pub/bar blindfolded. <pours pint of Guinness into glass pours glass contents into mouthwipes mouth smiles and repeats>
Well i'm rounding that up to half a litre(jeez that sound like a bucket full :) ): <pours 1/2 Litre of Guinness into glass, pours glass contents into mouth, wipes mouth, smiles and repeats>
I'm surprised that the "charge the same amount of money for less product" industry hasn't switched liquid stuff from quarts to liters yet. They could "go metric" and pocket some extra coin.
When the liquor industry made the switch, they elimintated the "fifth" and replaced it with "750 ml".
750 ml = .825 quart
1/5 quart = 0.8 quart = 727 ml
What I don't remember is whether they changed pricing (hard liquor - I really don't pay much attention to wine).
My point? By going from a "fifth" to 750ml they *increased* the product quantity (size) which seems to run counter to what you are suggesting would happen.
What *would* happen is that they would end up confusing the living shit out of most Americans (since most Americans are essentially "metric stupid") and they could get away with "murder."
The size of a liter is set by the manufacturers of computer storage such as disks and tapes. They play silly games with sizes based on powers of 2 vs. powers of 10 to skew the numbers in their favor. They also typically show you the capacity *after* compression and deduplication.
So that "750 ml" bottle of liquor is really just a couple of shots' worth.
.... it works!
> May I have a KiB of beer?
The first OBGYN we had always described what was happening in the process of birth in terms of CC's of beer for some odd reason. His wife was from Sweden and if I had to take a guess, they must have measured beer by the cc. Wow, just dumped a bit much out there. Beer out the nose. Did not realize how much a KiB of beer was. Sorry, let me wipe that up with... uh...
You don't say!? :))

I think i've sobered up now - a little; but i still can't quite grasp the CC's of beer analogy, maybe he was talking about motorbike engines? :) :/

Nah, she wanted the motor bike, so I said I wanted an ultra light airplane. About the same risk I figured.
