Oh I don't know... I think the original post had an awful lot to do with attraction(s)...

We still use mph not kph. It's more fun to keep anything to do with roads/driving in imperial and everything else metric.

But was the Imperial mile the same as an American mile (5280 ft.)? I know that an Imperial Gallon was 5 quarts American.

And I fail to see or understand why this is a problem for you. It may or may not be in the proper place, but somehow I think tomorrow will still arrive and if it doesn't, it probably wasn't because of this thread.

I suppose I'm not surprised that the older characters are slowly disappearing. With so many people turning to this ideal of needing to protect their kid from everything unhappy in the world.. Heaven forbid little Susie see's what happens to Bambi's mom and all that jazz. Then the fact that there's not fun music and graphics and 3D...yeah just not surprised. It is a shame though.

Very true. Bambi and Dumbo and Old Yeller were traumatic experiences in my young life. But I feel like I learned something from them in an easier way than when I learned the same lesson at the death of my first beloved pet. Not to mention person. And they help you remember to focus on the happy and the joy within the sad - being twitter-pated conquers all.

Oooh, I think so. Cups are different too (which makes it a nightmare when using US recipes!), but as far as I'm aware, the mile is the one measurement that's been the same for an awfully long time. I could be wrong though!

Will stop the off topic nonsense now.
