Yes. I am very concerned for your welfare.
I wish you every good fortune with your enterprise. Just ensure that
none of your chosen workers are people who might impede your business by
using American gallons or liters.
As an artist, we use paints, thinners, matt medium and the like by the
squirt, blob or 'about that much' ... quantities. It's all sold here by
the litre, millilitre etc.
As for my model-making sideline, we're back full circle with your
comment, the equipment all works in metric measurements while the
materials come in metrics _and_ the hundred odd Imperial and US
As Ray commented, dilute your 100ml of active ingredient with an
(undefined) quart for every 141 square inches of surface for a coating
of between 11/64" and 0.247" to ensure complete coverage of the #47
gauge wires and #6 screwheads.
I found Monty Python generally rather boring................ now, Benny
Hill is another story...he was 100% entertaining and FUNNY! Always
wondered what he'd have done in those end of show girlie chases had he
caught one of them? :^)

Well, since we've totally degenerated into cultural slurring in this
thread, might as well go in full bore; seeing the word "colours", for
some reason, always brings to my mind an image of the word spoken by a
(younger) Mick Jagger with obscenely pouted lips, with an exaggerated,
sneering pronunciation somewhere in the vicinity of "col-OOOOO-u-rs"
(although I hasten to add that I still love their song from "Their
Satanic Majesties Request" (their answer to the Beatle's more insipid
Sgt. Pepper), "She Comes in Colours".)
Gee, maybe you can tell I'm not exactly an Anglophile ...
I tend to agree with you regarding CURRENT US TV humor which tends to be
loud and gross...none of today's offerings equal such classics as MASH,
Cheers etc. And, I have NEVER watched a full episode of Seinfeld or the
Simpsons. From clips of Seinfeld, I cannot fathom what his talent is or how
he got where he is and what the public sees in him. Guess that dates me. :)
I certainly can't think of any. Even the fancy new pumps that also dispense
E85 (spit) don't dual mark in liters.
Of course, gas isn't really sold in gallons - it's sold in hundreths of a
gallon. So feel free to do the math and stop wherever you like. *
