Dunno if reverse engineering a crashed spacecraft really helps a lot, except if building one that crashes as well Maybe that's why we're not that far with these things, we just kept reverse engineering crashed alien crafts without trying to alter out the bugs present in their design (there must be bugs - they crashed onto earth, after all).
I only have a signature in order to let @DalekDave follow my posts.
Herself has just talked herself into Kebab and Beer Night one night this week!
I was remarkably difficult to persuade into this, I have to say. I must have resisted and argued for ... ooo ... no, I didn't. Not even slightly.
Sometimes, even though you know it's evil; it's bad for you; it's fat, and salt, and gawd knows what meat; the food equivelant of VB; you just gotta have one ... and it's been so long. YES!

That started me down the rabbit hole.
So, will the Kilogram actually weigh a different value in relation to the pound then?
Not much info out there and I'm totally confused. I had committed to memory that there are about 2.2 lbs in 1 kilo so I guess that will be wasted memory space.

That's always been a problem with converting a country from one unit to another.
When you buy something it has a size - period. Why do you need to convert it? After all, a 750ml bottle of Single Malt Scotch is very close to a fifth (of a gallon). Why do you need to convert it all all, though? As the say, but here it actually applies "It Is What It Is". Trying to get people to memorize long list of conversions was doomed from the start.
The imperial system is not decimal. There are 36 inches in a yard, 12 inches in a foot, 16 ounces in a pound. It's very arbitrary. Even it's creators saw it's a bad idea and switched to metric. The US is still clinching to the old for some inexplicable reason.
