    Speaking of diets, there is a poster outside the canteen at college saying 'There is no healthy or unhealthy food - It's all about getting the balance right'. I quite agree with that. Have a good balanced diet and then chips will not make you fat.

    I know that it is a unit, but I never heard of that one? So what's the proportion between kilo and stone?

    A Stone is an imperial measurement so doesn't have an exact unit into it for KG. To explain what it is exactly, one Stone equals 14 pounds. Hope that makes more sense now. UK imperial measurements are always confusing, be it weight, length or money! Nothing ever goes into any other measurement in any logical amount. Quite mad!

    Hey guys

    Atleast i didnt use Roman Numerals LMAO!!!

    anyway for simple conversion its like this

    1 stone = 14 lbs

    2.2lbs = 1 kgs

    so a 10 stone man would wieght 140lbs in imperial and 63KG

    needless to say, i weigh a hell of a lot more than that lol...


    interestingly its 12 ounces to 1 pound in weight, UNLESS you are weighing gold where its 13 ounces per pound. later refered to TROY ounces...

    theres more silly ones like that, but i would have to google it LOL... ... i will save that for a slow day...
    If i had a hammer, I would hammer in the morning, i would hammer in the evening, i would hammer all day

    I refer back to my earlier post which is 1 stone is equal to 6.35029 kg.

    I'll forgive Dial up boy for not reading my post this time.

    No, I read your post. But I stated it "doesn't have an exact unit into it for KG", as they are completely different measurement systems.

    The imperial system is completely mad and as illogical as anything I've ever encountered. Why of why didn't people come up with the metric system before they did? Surely it makes sense to divide everything equally by 10? Mad!

    Because the metric system is designed for the simpleton johnny foreigners. As we British a vastly superior in intelect we need a more complicated system of measurement to proove our superiority. We ruled most of the planet you know. (note for Americans:- This is sarcasm. We know you rule most of the planet now although of course you have no imperial tendancies. Honest. (This of course is more sarcasm))
