NONE OF THIS EXAMPLE BELOW IS POSSIBLE...
WE JUST IMAGINE IT TO ILLUSTRATE
HOW NOTHING WITH INCH-POUND MEASUREMENT
IS RELATED TO ANYTHING.
Let's IMAGINE a person from another archaic country
or planet that wanted to know how you could possibly make the
old "inch-pound non-system"
easy to understand by
MIGHT somehow relate to each other
with inch-pound measurement.
could take the length of a yard and divide it by exactly
ten equal parts... so we can make a cube container with
equal sides to hold water...
...then by some
strange course of events IMAGINE again IF we could fill that cube
container with water
AND that cube contained the liquid of exactly
1 quart which, when placed on a scale weighed
exactly 1 pound.

Let's go party!"
