(Tried to post this the other day, but it kept telling me that the server wasn't playing the game.)

Bath?? Bath???....oh yeah, isn't that one of them big tub things you fill with water to have a wash.....haven't had a bath in years.
wtf Shocked Fart Embarassed

We are on Level 5 Water Restrictions here now in Brisbane. We are in a pretty bad way with water.

We are actually getting pretty heavy rain as I type this...which is great for the gardens and lawn....have to mow it now Laughing ...but unless we are getting it over the catchment areas it doesn't mean much. I have already lost one palm tree and a couple of others are looking very seedy so this rain will do them good. They just reported on the news that we need 300mm of rain to fill just our main dam 200mm to fill the reserve and 700mm to fill another dam so we are all hoping that we get significant rain over the catchment areas this winter. At the moment we have had 50mm in my suburb, but only about 30mm over the catchment areas.

Dimitri, I think you guys use 3.8 litres to the gallon whereas we use 4.5 litres to the gallon. I have fitted AAA rated shower heads which are rated at a maximum of 9 litres per minute to my showers and keep my showers to about 3 minutes which means I use a max of 27 litres or 6 gallons. I save further by only turning on the shower hard enough to wash the saop off so we are also saving like that. The Council has sent to all households in SE Queensland a Shower Timer set at 4 minutes in order to try and save more water. I can't even use my spa (jacuzzi) now cause it uses too much water. Mad Laughing

Keetoowah is right when she said "military training serving you well now huh??" When you have to carry every drop of water you need you soon learn to conserve it. Had many a tub in my helmet. Bushy....you must remember what its like when nobody showers....no-one notices the stink cause everyone smells the same. Very Happy

Damn, don't throw me into one of them there Canadian lakes !!!! Apart from making the porr fish suffer, I don't think I could handle the cold. I mean, its all "spanner" water way up there in the Arctic isn't it? wtf Confused Confused Its Winter here in Aussie now and I am sitting here in shorts, t-shirt and sandals Very Happy Laughing ...and its cooled down quite a bit because of the rain.

Cheers, Vince

Yes in Canada we use the American gallon not the Imperial gallon. Smile

Also note, its not that cold in the water, you could survive, its hot out now anyways because its summer here. You'll be fine. Laughing

Well "Mitri" I always knew you eastern folks where different, but here in the west we used the Imperial gallons before we went metric. We switched because your idiot Trudeau made us switch to metric. You are wrong, we out west, never did use the U.S. gallon here and the rest of Canada didn't either. Check it out Buddy. An Imperial gallon is 4.546 liters, just so you know. Canada used Imperial measurements before the Metric system and that means no U.S. measurements at all, incl pints, quarts, gallons etc. I know cause I used to buy gas at .33 cents per Imperial gallon when I started driving. A 45 Imp gallon drum of bronze gas used to cost just under $15.00 delivered to the farm. We did not and never have used U.S. measurements.

Seems to me that insteada tryin' to do all the math

ex:(3.8liters (or litres)vs 4.546 liters (or litres) = 1 US gallon for comparison,

You could just use:

1 US gallon and be done with it!

1895ss,

Hey now Trudeu wasn't my idiot. Shocked

Also your right about the using the Imperial system of measurement before going metric, however I've always delt with it as 3.8Liters thats what I was told it was when learning about the gallon and when I buy a gallon of something its always 3.8L. Confused

Dimitri

Yes but just for your info, a U.S. gallon is smaller then an Imperial gallon.

U.S. gallon = 3.7854 liters
Imperial Gallon =4.546 liters

Just so you know, there are 4.5 Imperial quarts in a U.S. gallon.

Surely not mine. He came from your neck of the woods. You where born after the metric system came about and have no idea about the problems it caused or the billions of dollars spent to switch over. Trust me, we used the Imperial system before metric. Ask people in your area who were around before the switch.

I know this is off the subject and has NOTHING to do with hunting (by this I mean this entire thread) but how are liquid products packaged and sold in Canada? what about Australia? and the UK? (I do know that the Irish are prolly too drunk to measure anything deeper than "two fingers", and a Scotchman three)

Forgive my ignorance, but, as an American citizen who's never had occasion to leave the country, been "taught" the metric system (as though it's some mythical being hiding out there in the shadows), I had no idea there was any such thing as an "Imperial" gallon, containing anything other than 3.78 liters.

Well too be fair he was born in Montreal Quebec. I've been to Hull for about 4 hours once, thats all my time in that Province. And plus they don't like us in Ontario, isn't that one of the main reasons they wanted to seperate anyways ?? Very Happy

I trust you that we used the Imperial system before the switch, and I'm sure the gallon was 4.546L. Guess its because I grew up in a post-"metric" country the American definition is the one I was always told to use. Smile

I know how much it cost to switch and I also know many people didn't switch. Heck in Europe and Asia they arn't truly metric using Imperial measurements on alot of things and claiming them to be metric like standard 6.35x1.27mm screws (1/4-20UNC) or 9.525x1.5875mm (3/8-16UNC) and there are more weird "metric" sizes that are really Imperial sizes renamed to metric sizes. Smile

Who said I liked the metric system ?? Confused

hunterjoe21,

The Imperial and American system is different. The inch for example in the Imperial system used to be 25.399 956 mm and the American 25.400 05 mm. Alot of precision items in WW2 suffered from this difference, most the difference is negligable but for percision parts it was critial and did cause confusion in the war effort, so they wanted to do something about it. It was actually Canada in 1951 which the Inch was defined first as 25.4mm (which is right inbetween of the Imperial and American and a nice number to do math with) which was later adopted in 1958 as the standard world wide inch. Smile

The US now has 2 "foots" one in the new 25.4mm per inch(the standard one used today since 1958) and one with the old 25.400 05 mm inch called the "Survey" foot. At 100 miles the difference between the 2 is about a foot though, not much. Smile

Holy Precision Instruments, Batman!!!

I know that there are numerous scales, of which I will never have a use (I used to work with a machinist who measured everything in millionths of an inch), but until this thread didn't know (nor did I care) that an Imperial system existed.
