Doesn't sound stupid to me. The whole measuring system using quarts is kinda stupid. The US got the quarts/ ounces/ gallons/ etc. from the Brits a long time ago. You guys were still officially using quarts & gallons, etc until 1959 and longer, unofficially. Here in Canada, we switched from Imperial measure to metric in the '70s. Imperial quarts were bigger than US quarts. It could get really confusing. It gets even better. There are liquid quarts and dry quarts. Here you want liquid quarts = 946 ml.
