Had to laugh

Reading some background on bbc website  Distances in km rather than miles.  Heights in metres rather  than yards. When did the UK change ?  There would be an outrage if yards and miles were used here in Spain !

I went to school in the 80s and 90s - height was always measured in metres.

So I guess about 30 years ago, Varche ;)

Had a very confused conversation with local butcher when I went to order a turkey. He was talking pounds, I was talking Kilograms. I almost ordered a VERY small turkey. Welcome to Wales  ::)

May well have been. I have a couple of tape measures in metric and imperial. Handy to take into diy stores here as it is obviously your own. Iuse both but nevermixthe two. Funnily enough the Spanish have to use imperial for some rhings here. Putting aside tyre measurements, the other obvious legacy of British ndustrial revolution is the continued use of inches for pipework.

The article had obviously been converted laboriously from imperial into metric e.g. one country had a drone exclusion zone of 5.6 km ( 3 and a half miles at a guess).

Whippersnapper.

In my day, during the reign of Queen Vicky, we used pounds, shillings and pence. Miles and yards and addition of fractions.''''1/8 plus 3/16 etc...etc.

To show how times have changed there was not a single black kid during my time at school.

As people from Yorkshire don't like people from outside Yorkshire, and don't tend to visit places that are not part of Yorkshire, the gene pool will be quite restrictive.

The BBC can't make its mind up. I see loads of programmes where they talk about a few meter tall or even so many hundred meters away but then say that something is so many miles away. I wish they'd use one or the other.
