Thread Name: BS: weight measurment
Subject: RE: BS: weight measurment
I think when it comes to talking about body weight most of the time people in the British Isles still use stones, even if they use metric for shopping. I can't see that changing in a hurry.

Schools aren't the only place people learn about weights and measures.

I've never seen anyone look puzzled when someone sings "Sixteen Stone"
