Yeah what she said
A pound of feathers is not the same as a pound of well never mind lol, liquids and solids are not measured the same or you're heading for disaster!
On a venting note- it really ticks me off (being nice lol) that the entire planet can not use the same types of measurements- instead, I have a great recipe I get from my aunt in Germany that's all in grams, and then I go to a recipe in the US and it's in inches, and another is in fathoms and then another is bushels (kidding)- gosh can ya tell I thrive on consistency? Not that there arent enough conversion charts out there but it's a PAIN in the arse when you're in the grocery store and there is none lol
