 NOT SO! THERE'S A BIG PROBLEM HERE and HAS BEEN FOR A LONG TIME!

NOTHING RELATES
in such an outdated non-system of
inches, pounds, gallons, firkens, knoginheads

or even
barleycorns!

Lifetimes are consumed trying to memorize complicated figures and fractions.
And writing silly things like
"oz." for ounce or "lb." for pound.

Is the solid of 16 oz. in a bag of nuts
the same as 16 oz. of liquid in can of juice?

OR
Add up in your head, the total of 2/3+3/8+3/5 of an inch.

OR

How about going shopping and trying to
determine which is the better buy?..
1-17 oz. can of a product for 63 cents,
or 2-14.5 oz. cans for \$1.10
or maybe 3-16 oz. cans for \$1.49.

OR
How about 3 feet in a yard... 12 inches in a foot?
A foot is nowhere near the length of
an average person's foot and blah, blah, blah.
