And Winston Churchill wept

Ambitious G20 commitment to lowering deficits... as EU settles for lowering IQs'...
euroweeniesI'm with P.J. O'Rourke...

"How did an allegedly free people spawn a vast, rampant cuttlefish of dominion with its tentacles in every orifice of the body politic?"
Can mandatory bedtimes be far behind?

So, just wondering if the weight of the pkg is included in the weight of the pkg of eggs or buns or whatever.
What an absolutely stupid idea that Miller and McG might think is great.

"mary asks... the weight of the pkg"

you mean like gasoline in canada being volume corrected for temperature expansion at the pump?

i bet that works in favour of the consumer too, huh?

When the gov't tried to change recipes into metric, I argued that - at least in baking - everything revolved around the number of eggs used. Generally, in cakes and cookies, it's so much flour, sugar, & fat to the egg. So I suggested that instead of the kilo, we should use the 'oeuf' as our standard of measurement.
