Gents I am knot happy about all of this nonsense. Also knot particularly keen on the May Gurney T/O bid. Hope to be proved wrong though.

Sounds like a good idea to me, I have had shares that have been underwater and several that have sunk without a trace. A unit of measurement for how much underwater one's holdings are could be useful. I was at least a couple of fathoms down on Costain not so long ago.

ADVFN charts a 'bit slow' on the updates. Bid 286.25 offer 293.25 edit.....now updated :-) btw 'fathom' is still the nautical depth measurement.

A fathom is a measure should we bring that into our 'bring back ' campaign as well

As this 'bring back' discussion is now getting serious may I suggest that we bring back King Edwards as well

LOL. So have I, and on my window sill next to me are phennigs, schillings, groschens and French and Belgian Franks. Apols for spelling. This share and Glaxo were my only blue yesterday.

Still use chains - cricket. Furlongs - horses. Appreciate metric is easy but I like our own systems and traditions.

How long does it take an average 16 year old to work out many .......

I believe the army uses metric for all vital battlefield statistics and ordnance, i.e. in a situation where accuracy and clarity are important. http://www.army.mod.uk/equipment/23275.aspx Anybody proposing the retention of archaic measuring systems should consider the following: How long would it take an average British 16-yr-old to work out the number of square yards in an acre, pints in a cubic yard and tell you the freezing and boiling points of water in Fahrenheit? And then ask yourself how long would it take a German 16-yr-old to work out the number of square metres in a hectare, litres in a cubic metre and the boiling and freezing points of water in Celsius. The current mixture is daft. Lets go metric and have done with it. Beer will still taste the same when we buy it in the same units in the pub as we do in the supermarket.
