    But, there's no ring for guineas, crowns, half crowns, florins, sixpences, threepences, halfpennies, and farthings. This is what happens when your money system is as poorly designed as your measurement system.

    The first time I visited the UK the old system was still in use. When I paid for something I carefully counted my change. Many times it was wrong. At first I thought it was simply the natives taking advantage of an American but later I realized that the error was as often in my favor as it was against. Apparently the system was as confusing for them as it was for me.
