We have resorted to metrics. Forget this American Standard crap!

Now we just measure in grams. Why? Because 1g = 1ml. Water, coffee, whatever. Now, granted, I know that this is not technically true, but in the instance of measuring water and coffee, it works.

By the way, an imperial fl. oz. is 28.4 ml, not 29.57 ml as in a US fl. oz.  Both are quite close to 10 barn-megaparsecs (a unit of a really long and narrow volume) though.

Also, one pint is 20 fl. oz = 568ml.  Anything else is the wrong amount of beer.  ;)

I rather like the German one liter steins.

And would would turn down a yard of ale because of metric snobbishness?

Shoot me in the face, this stuff is so f'd up that I only use gallons and half gallons because it's buried in our culture.

It's a lot more fun though - unless you crash a Mars orbiter that is, and your Canadian neighbours can always taunt about how much more efficient their cars are.....

So our French cousins had it right all along - but wait -  the kilogram is about to be re-defined ! - and now Chrome is telling me I can't spell "neighbour" for some reason 'cos someone called Webster seems to have decided to change it.

Vive la différence.

Sooooooo much adoo about nothing ,..... Really

Unless we are making something for an experiment, a pint is a pound... Or close enough not to make a difference other than to the.... Persons who have been without a bowel movement for an extended period of time.

YMMV as I often say :-)

Agreed (in part).  However, if all coffeegeek posts were to be excluded based on that sort of criteria........there would be far fewer of them ;o)

Yl/100kmMV of course.

Agreed it's only so much navel gazing. Misses the point though that this is dependant on the pint in question. It's not universal and it's open to misinterpretation.

Believe me a pint of Heineken in the US is a sad disappointment compared to a pint of Heineken in the UK and we're not talking flavour here, just four ounces or so.
