curious george?yes he would for sure know how many barrels of monkeys it would hold. witch would be half of the rating as the other half had barrels of bananas in it. unless the monkeys poop over board then they can add some more barrels to the deck.but it would be over weight till the monkeys ate&pooped over deck.or died or thrown in to feed the sharks for the monkeys entertainment...try to stay on the monkeys good side.but always remember they are swingers....
Ounces. Inches. Meters. Furlongs. Nautical Miles. Thousandths. MPH. Pounds. Kilo's. Grams. Grains. Hands. KPH. Stones. PSI. Nm. Troy. Avd. C°. F°. Hours...
I suspect most people comprehend reading of thermometers and odometers, less for scales and protractors, some don't get the 24 hour clock, and well known challenges facing tape measures. So then we found off-beat comparisons, that try to relate scale of one thing to others, such as football fields.
This I swear is real, someone wishing to sell a grapple. Of all things in a household, a grapple not top of many lists,
yet remotes are identical, right?

LOL, You're supposed to use a banana for scale!
(although, actually that particular remote is a very common model..it used to be the one that came with most Cox or Comcast cable boxes, so it's not particularly stupid to use it)
And some wag has made a standard aluminum banana for scaling purposes (this is a still from one of Hand Tool Rescue's videos on youtube ) https://i.redd.it/6688tff4tq531.png

I heard, yesterday, what I consider is the definitive way to measure the size of a lawn.
A freind of mine is a real estate agent and he tells me that the recognized way to determine the size of a lawn is the number of "tinnies" (cans of beer), that it takes to mow it.
He went on to say that a local builder prices all his jobs by "slabs", ie. cartons of beer. Which when you think about it is not so silly because the jobs rarely change in the amount of work to be done, but the ever increasing cost of living changes the price constantly, so a slab of beer rises consistently with the cost of living,.......no more calculating to be done.

The U.N.G.C. actually overruled their European branch office the E.U. on that one.
Now I have a question for everybody. How many metres in a mile?
