Oh Yeah, Well How Many Table Spoons Do You Weigh??

Last night I was baking samboosak with Daniella and a bunch of other girls in my apartment. Everyone knows that the measuring system (what's it called?) in Israel isn't the same as it is in America. So the following conversation took place when I needed to convert grams into tablespoons.
Me: Daniella, how do you convert grams into tablespoons?
Daniella: You can't convert it, grams is a weight table spoons is a volume.
Me: Table spoons isn't a volume!!
Daniella: Oh yeah, Alison, well how many table spoons do you weigh??

(p.s. when asking this question to Yael, she answered with 8,926)

Imperial system sucks! America should switch to Metric!

Although, I heard a system based on 6 rather than 10 is easier for human beings to grasp. Who knows, but 10 works well for me.

Metrics for life!

Thats right! Metric system rocks!

I don't know about six Nukes, but I know that the ancient Babylonians used a base 60 system. FYI, The Chinese have traditionally used a system based on 5, which is half of 10.

btw, 1 tbsp.= 0.5 oz. and 1 g = 0.035 oz.

Are you kidding Nukes we can't switch to the Metric system, do you know how much it would cost to switch all the speed limit signs in America. Damn you just don't think things bxtrcmhu.

I wouldn't normally mention it, but since we're on the subject, grams measures mass. Newtons measure weight.
