Briton on holiday in Thailand catches 10 stone carp using a piece of bread

Recommended Posts

This may help some people.

16 ounces = one pound

fourteen pounds =one stone

one hundred and twelve pounds= one hunredweight.

Twenty hundredweights =one ton.

2240 Pounds = one ton

We had to learn these multiplications when I were at school.


4 farthings =one penny

2 halfpennies = one penny

12 pennies = one shilling

2 shillings = one florin.

5 shillings = one crown.

twenty shillings = one pound ( currency)

One guinea = twenty one shillings.

Metric is much is much more simple.

Too many pints is the reason the imperial system was developed in this fashion,

Perhaps they chose the arbitrary measures during a dart match and mixed up the scoreboard with the data.

...battling for almost an hour with his hands gripped to his rod and adrenaline pumping through his body...

I used to do that when I was young, how come I never caught anything?

You got lucky.

I do the occasional fishing and even caught in a fishing park it's still an archievement these big carps are not easy to catch, even in such a pond.Landing such a monster is a archievment and need proper fishing skils.

Congrats to this guy.

The reason many fishers go to these fishing park is that fishing in the "wild" is not rewarding anymore, since all and I mean ALL the fish the locals catch is eaten so there's not much left in the wild.

On the other hand why do Europeans (and the vast majority of the rest of the world) still use Imperial units in many measurements - e.g. railway track is always "Standard" gauge
