Yes, really. It's 12 UK fluid ounces.
Ah - what the 330ml cans approximate, I presume. I don't think I've seen 341ml bottles, though - maybe I haven't looked.

Ha - We still buy eggs by the dozen, lettuce by the head - is that a metric or imperial unit of measure?
The lettuce one is metric. The imperial version is the off-with-his-head of lettuce.

The alt-text on that one is good too - "More likely: Click on all the pictures of people who appear disloyal to [name of company or government]"

Some friends came over to the UK from Spain and wondered why we sell milk in units of 1.136 litres. Two pints, in metric.
OMG, seriously, I would be wondering as well, it wasn't just done to 1litre, 2litre etc ?

We used to sell it in pints, or simple multiples thereof. When we switched to using metric officially there was a huge outcry about it - largely from the type of conservative who (to quote David Eddings) "wouldn't change their underwear if they didn't have to". Carrying on selling in pints, just labelled differently, was a form of social judo. By changing literally nothing except the number on the bottle (and we'd had dual labelling for years anyway) they were more or less totally disarmed. And sensible metric quantities have slowly crept in - beer in 500ml cans isn't uncommon now, for example.

To be fair, I think there were concerns that shops would stop selling pints and start selling half litres but not change the price - a per-volume rise of over 13%. And since exactly that happened the other way around, at least in some places, when Europe introduced the Euro (many things got their prices rounded up to the next multiple of 5 cents, never down), there probably was some genuine concern.

It's from a microbrewery in Montreal.

That was actually my first thought: 6! together with the question: where else would it make sense?

That reminds me (not actually a joke but a curious fact). Did you know that 10! seconds is exactly 42 days? Maybe that was the ultimate question.

Makes sense.
Earth was a giant supercomputer designed to find the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything. Designed by Deep Thought and built by the Magratheans, it was commonly mistaken for a planet, especially by the ape descendants who lived on it.
But as "days" varies in time, they have to hurry up reading the output.

Inspired by the lame jokes thread:

Why didn't Hamilton travel more?
If a city had a dead end there was no path for him.

Edit: Hmm... working on it.

Why did Hamilton get lost so often?
He couldn't find a path.

Close. With the kind of number and read differently it will be the solution.
