LOL jno. Some time ago I read an excellent article about the two guys who set out to figure out how long a meter actually was and how much liter is. They didn't care about Louis XIV being beheaded and just took their results to Napoleon after many years of measuring. The article had a little trivia about the British refusing to accept the metric system because it was made by the French :0)
