just to be a pedantic ass, it's 2.204 lbs to a kg and obviously when dealing in larger weights the .04 will make a difference

LOL no defence needed, that actually is just one of my little very specific foibles I have as I needed to know it many moons ago aged 16 and working in a warehouse loading wagons etc

I know it doesn't really apply to the size of fish tanks we were talking about, but of course when dealing with weight restrictions and loading wagons up with up to 30 or 40 tonne of stuff you need to know that extra .04 lol

Where I worked on my gap year we weighed all the hay and haylage we fed to the horses, I can now hold up any item and tell the weight in lb's almost to the ounce...

I never thought I could but after doing the same thing a few dozen times a day, every day, for a year...it kinda just becomes second nature.

Yes I can see how that would have developed actually.

Spose it would have come in handy on payday you could instantly tell if it was "light" lol
