Buchenskjoll Re:FP? (942 comments)

I think you meant to write: Actually, smart arse, it can be either, you can be 18 stone or 18 stones, if you're going to try to act clever make sure you're correct! From the wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...: The correct plural form of stone in this context is stone (as in, "11 stone" or "12 stone 6 pounds");

David Cameron Says Brits Should Be Taught Imperial Measures

Buchenskjoll Re:FP? (942 comments)

Using metric everywhere makes perfect sense. And even though you're so in love with imperial units, you don't get the plural right. When used about human weight it's "stone", not "stones". And by the way, I never met a man that weighed 60 kg, you need 3 figures.... Your imperial units are no good here, jedi.
