One Last Mystery Solved – What’s up with “A4” Sized Paper

Between Borders.com has resolved the issue of the A4 size paper versus the US 8.5″ by 11″ … in details upon details. 🙂

Basically, it comes down the whole metric system thing of precise measurements versus the 12″ equals a foot but 4 quarts equals a gallon or that 5280 is a mile – or that smidge is smaller than a skoosh … the US system takes real skill – any fool can calculate the whole MM-CM-M-KM and the power of ten, that’s just laziness. 🙂  … Look how much you pay for gas because it’s by the litre. 🙂
