In England, nothing is just from the middle-ages.

We still use furlong for ***** sake.

Y'all make fun of us for the imperial system...

But you still use furlong?

Most snails' speed is roughly one furlong per fortnight

Unit of measuring distance. It's about 201 metres or an eighth of a mile.

Don't be fooled, American's use the term "Cubic Ton"

I've lived in 7 cities in 7 states none of them bordering one another and I've never heard anyone use that but I did learn about it, so I'm sure it's probably used somewhere

Furlong is a stupid way of saying an 8th of a mile yeah sure but cubic ton? Realllly? Both terms are outdated and cubic ton is about the same as 40 logs not sure how that makes sense.

I don't think anyone says cubic ton though, I've heard metric ton far more often.

Cubic ton like furlong are old measurements, cubic ton was used in America not sure on it's full meaning but I think lumberjacks used it.

Why would that ever be useful? What's even that distance?

Horse races, mainly.

User avatar #9 to #7 - luthervonappledorf (12/14/2013) [-]
And you can imagine how useful that is.
