@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... :-)


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


For some reasons it is very specific.

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