Hey, what about rods and chains? An acre is based off the chain, what did the stade ever produce?

BTW, that was called leading the witness. ;)

Very clear now. :P

(Sorry. I just can't resist poking fun at you non-metric users.)

Even for non-metric users, "stones" is a bit arcane. May as well give one's height in cubits and one's annual income in terms of the purchase price of cows. Measure one's property in square stades. Give one's weight in drachmas. Crash rockets into Mars. :rolleyes:

Stones are perfectly normal units of measure in the UK, and also the reason for my first ever reply on Spiderweb. That was a very long time ago!

I eschew low remarks about furries. A mole is not a unit, but merely a number.
