Shut up already. We already HAVE good conversion lists on the FAQ
page.

I thought it was useful. We often have threads that duplicate information,
and some of them grow to considerable length, but I seldom see someone react
so strongly over a simple message that actually includes useful information.
(Some on this group don't even know where to find the FAQ.)

Once would be useful, but five times is excessive!

You're right about that. I only noticed the one thread (with two messages
about conversion tables). A link in one message would have been adequate.

*Now* I understand Lynn's objection. My apologies.

Whoever uses 1/5 teaspoon?

A metric cup (which is different from a US cup) is 250ml.

(2 metric cups = 500ml)

Fluid ounces are volume, not weight.

You don't think fluid has weith? Shoor some water up the air? Where
do they go (of course, I am talking about planet earth)?

OK, you shoot a VOLUME of water up in the air and it comes back down
because it has WEIGHT.
Of course fluids have weight. But, it is impossible to convert from
fluid oz. to weight simply because they are two different measurements
and all fluids do not have the same weight per unit volume.

Your chart says 1 fluid oz. = 28 grams
My question is, 1 fluid oz of what = 28 grams?
1 fluid oz. of water weighs ~ 29.5 grams
1 fluid oz. of gasoline weighs ~ 20 grams
1 fluid oz. of ethyl alcohol weighs ~ 23 grams
1 fluid oz. of mercury weighs ~ 400 grams

Nonetheless, a _fluid_ ounce is a measure of _volume_.

Then you should've saved it to your hard drive rather than posting it
here.
