"How :wide_w: :wide_i: :wide_d: :wide_e: are you?"

@kingu_platypus_gidora Finalement, c'est pire qu'aux Etats-Unis. Ils utilisent des unités absurdes, mais au moins ils les utilisent partout, tout le temps.

@hypolite Ouais. C'est pas mal ici le pays ou les mesures sont les plus compliquées... :-)

@kingu_platypus_gidora

For real though, can we PLEASE standardize to #metric for cooking?

No one on Earth knows how much a tablespoon is

@Christian @kingu_platypus_gidora@octodon.social

You get a tablespoon and put stuff in it. :)

@Christian @kingu_platypus_gidora What people do is they have a set of measuring spoons of different sizes, including table spoon and half table spoon. I have one. It takes half the space of a drawer. I think it's an incredibly bad design because you literally need a different measuring instrument for all different amounts, instead of using, like, a kitchen scale for all amounts.

And don't get me started about measuring flour amounts in volume when the density is so variable.

@kingu_platypus_gidora i thought this might be like in the uk, but no, every answer apart from human height would be different

@radicalgraffiti

For some reasons it is very specific.

Like pools. Only people with a pool use Farenheit.. why?
