It's a remnant left over from pre-metric system weights. Apparently precious metals and gemstones need special treatment.
One troy ounce (oz t) is equal to 31.1034768 grams. Also equal to 1.09714286 avoirdupois ounces, exactly 192/175, or about 10% larger

Except we're not using stupid bullshit measurements, we're using the same exact measurement for both.

a tonne is a tonne.. it will be converted into tonnes..
User avatar #42 - lean (12/23/2014) [-]
A tonne as you put it (16 oz/ lb, 2204.6 lbs) is different from a US Ton- which is to say, a different unit of weight. A ton (US) = 2,000 lbs, in whichever system of measurement is used. It is not a KG conversion, nor is it explicitly Avoirdupois.
Some (typically precious) metals are measured in troy weight ( 1 Oz T = 373.24 grams, 12 Oz/ lb) This is a different weight than Avoirdupois ( 1 Oz A = 453.59 grams, 16 Oz/ lb)
Both of these can be measured in Tons (US) whereby 1 Troy Ton = 8957.760 KG, whereas feathers are explicitly only measured in Avoirdupois, 1 Ton = 14514.88 KG.

This has been an illustration of why a US Ton of feathers can actually be heavier than a US ton of metal. Precious metals and feathers are measured on different weight criteria

I suppose that's true. But the sense of entitlement would mean nothing if banks actually had to ensure that their loans and investments were sound, and if they'd go out of business if they fucked up like they should.

Of course the sense of entitlement is what causes legislation like that in the first place though. I think it all started with the artificial boom of the 20's, where people were partying 24/7 instead of working 24/7 like they had to through the rest of human history. Then the crash happened and people of course for their own convenience blamed the system rather than themselves, and wanted to continue that carefree roaring 20's lifestyle, so came Government make-work jobs and eventually the Welfare State which made entitlement even more of a problem, and now here we are less than 100 years later and things just continue getting worse.

Yeah. The Great Depression was a direct result of government mismanagement. The stock market crash caused "bank runs" where everyone makes crazy withdrawals because faith in the banking system had just been shattered. Instead of the Fed supporting the banks (giving the cash reserves for which they insured the banks) the Fed clammed up. This led to widespread bank failure. The Fed looked on until it was too late, not realizing that the collapse in banking itself was precipitated by a lack of available funding. People had no money, so less was spent- boom, economic collapse.
