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? :)

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."

Sorry mo, but we've gone metric. We don't serve pints anymore. Now we serve 0.473176 liters.

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.

A liter is a tad larger than a quart, IG - how would that "charge the same amount of money..." think work with that?

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.

> 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...

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.
