The English Cowpath: Canada is Unofficially Bimetric

The English Cowpath: Canada is Unofficially Bimetric: " I wrote the following 2 years ago in response to a question from my 3rd cousin who was raised in South Africa and is now living in Western ..."


  1. What do you mean "unofficially," folks.
    Distance is measured in kilometres, and weight in kilograms. But if you want construction materials, who knows anything but 2x4?
    I rest my case.

  2. Anymore distance is measured in time. It'll take 35 minutes to get to grandma's house if the traffic isn't bad. Or if your talking about kilos then you talking dope (BC bud).
    As for the 2x4 it's not really a 2x4. Measure it and see. :-)

  3. Canadian 2x4s are actually 1.5x3.5. they used to be, in my youth 1.75x3.75. They were cut 2x4 and planed.
