    hmm lets seee... how long is my .... metrick sure sounds like more!!!!or does it?

    when mesuring horses they use hands... so...is that how many hands it takes to help jack off the horse? is that matric? and why can jack get off the horse by himself? do the hands aggravated ?do the ranch hands get paid extra for helping jack off the horse?what about jill jacks wife do they help get her off when jack is outa town? all theses different measuring systems seems to agravate some and please others, just like the ranch hands that have quite a job.
    nowdays that I dont see so well,I would rather have all my sockets&wrenches color coded as well as the fastners. as for the gass I put in my car/motorsycle/4 wheeler/lawnmower....when it's full it's full.no need to gallons or litters. I see no reason for that any way.just either fill it up or put in the amount of$$ that you want /have to spend on it.I cant pay in gallons or liter....when I buy chicken by the piece is that metric or ???? do they choke their chicken before marinading it??opps I gotta go, jacks wife is yelling....sounds like she is ready to get off.it's a hard job but somebody has to do it.

    A volume chart is going to be messy. Just the "barrel" unit alone will have a forest of intertwined lines like a French hedgerow.

    There are seven different barrel sizes used in the USA, with the size being dependent on the contents. Their names and metric equivalents are as follows: US cranberry (95.5 liters), US dry (115.628 liters), US liquid (119.24 liters), US federal (117.348 liters), US federal proof spirits (151.416 liters), US drum (208.4 liters), US petroleum (135 kg.), US petroleum statistical (158.99 liters).

    And then there's the matter of the floz (fluid ounce). Despite its name it's a volume measure, not a weight measure. There are a lot of fluids out there and the volume of each it takes to weigh an ounce will vary accordingly.

    Just to add insult to the foregoing, many years ago I owned a boat, not much of a boat, 20ft or so long, but for Lloyds vessel insurance and registration it was measured in barrels. I suspect something to do with rum but bore NO resemblance to the number of barrels it could carry.

    Addendum to my previous post. Maybe it had something to do with it's internal volume (measured in barrels).

    Yes, displacement seems most likely, 'tho I don't recall ever being asked about it's dead weight. Lloyd might know, or perhaps his brother George.
