Might I suggest, that as this thread has dragged on now since
roughly three months before the O.J. Simpson trial started at the end of
the Mesozoic era, and it has attracted enough loonies arguing for the
Imperial system and enough rational folks arguing for Metrics, that it
deserves to be given its very own special little newsgroup where the
entire krunking debate may be taken, put into a neat little package,
and ideally lost in the dresser somewhere?

Thank you.

BTW...I remember at one point reading that there was a custom name
for the volume of 1 cubic meter, but can't recall it and don't see it used
anyplace (and I refer not to the kiloLiter, thank you). Anyone know what
this was? I believe it was one syllable, possibly starting with an "s."
