14 lb to a stone, Buckytom!

And don't get me started about 'hands', 'rods' 'perch' etc!

I've had to learn to be able to think in pounds since I've been coming here, now conversion arn't difficult...though when somebody still says "4 sticks of butter" I still occasionally do a double take (that would be the equivalent to 1kg of butter here).

When I'm in a metric country, I don't even try to convert. I go to the store and find something similar in size or weight, eyeball it, and just learn how much I want that way. I'm not a mathmetician. I forget it as soon as I'm home, but when I'm away that works. For recipes, you do have to convert, and I do own a few cookbooks written in metric. Most measuring cups have both, so no problem.
