If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Set up coffee to make the normal first pint. Except I didn't put my cup under it and left the drip-catcher (a dirty cracked cup) there. Said drip-catcher cup holds 8oz or so (1/2 pint to you metric-oriented heathens).
So, when musical sound of dripping stops I go to collect it. Keen observation indicates I'd need to sponge it up and suck on the sponge for that to succeed.
Cleaning, drying, and more careful, this time. It sounds nearly done.
It was never illegal to sell bananas using only metric measures as we were allowed to use supplementary indications for a limited period which was extended several times due to public resistance to the metric units until 2009, in 2009 the requirement to ultimately cease use of traditional units alongside metric units was finally removed.
Well - I think that works both ways - but here's a trick: consider the context!
When someone say use an "eight ounce cup", I would imagine only a very very small portion of the population would imagine that meant that one should weigh the vessel to determine its appropriateness for use. They'd probably jump to the irrational conclusion that it must be the cup's measured volume which they need to ascertain.
And I was talking in relation to "pint" - which sort of clarifies everything to almost everyone.
