Well, people might call it a pound of butter, but its actually 500 grams. Actually, these days its tought to find actual butter ... most of it is butter with canola oil or axle grease or something else added.

We are a metric country but there are still some people (usually older) who still talk about imperial measurements - usually for things like a pint of milk, pound of butter, couple of inches or something.

The problem with doing nothing all day is that you're never sure when you're actually finished.

I know we're metric but the plans for my boat were from the US, I had to go buy a new ruler and it wasn't easy.

The rest of the world is lovely place to visit but who would want to live there? The Great Downunder is the only place to be and stop poking fun at Clarke - he wasn't all bad was he?
