Canadian Weights & Measures

Canada is officially metric. We went metric in 1970. I came in 1978. I’m a Sagittarius.

How I think about weights and measures is completely screwy. Observe:

I measure my body weight in pounds. I measure the steak I eat in grams.

I know my height in feet and inches and I know my ceilings are 8 ft high. I know my work is about 2 kilometers away from my house. 

I can gauge something 10 feet high and 100 meters away; but not the other way around.

All fluids are measured in liters. Ounces confound me. How much rice do I make for our dinner? 1 cup (in 2 cups of water).
