The metric system is a lot simpler :P

1m3 (cubic metre) = 1000 Liter

1L of (pure) water at 4C weighs 1Kg.

501 x Shipp

But he being a weedy rake would not weight much.. so the question remains.. how many Woody Oaks..

So the weight on Dino's Exec Roof is 501 Shipp's

Code: Select all

Shipp being a lumpy 76Kg 
- Shipp you need to drop a bit there mate.. 
your as heavy as I was at last weigh in 
.. me being a short 1820mm.. and have to lose another 4kg)

Just as a thought what would that be in Miss November 2007's

So what is the flow rate off the roof in Schooners per Dog Leg lifts..

And the rain fall what would the rate be in stampeding White n Wooly Sunday lunch on legs per Llama mating

Dice... yup thats what google was using as its conversions... so i'm relatively sure my figures are correct assuming I converted from imperial properly... like I said if i didn't blame google ;)

LUMPY! lol, well i'm around the 1720mm mark, so at first glance i need to loose a few kilos... but of course muscle weighs more than fat... therefore I reckon most of my "extra" weight is actually muscle... yeah that must be it ;)
Google is god... of the internet :mrgreen:

168399 (cubic feet) = 4769 cubic meters

4769m^3 = 9101145 Gf (standard UK grapefruit)

or 1.9 Olympic swimming pools

meaning the roof was holding around 40 tonnes
