How much do you weigh? Are you sure?

Turns out you may want to reconsider.  It turns out that the “official” kilogram is either gaining or loosing weight (they aren’t sure).  Makes you wish the good ‘ole pound wasn’t redefined , doesn’t it??  The solutions?  redefine it–the kilogram–as a certain number of atoms of some material?  Wow….

I knew there was a reason I didn’t like the metric system….. If you need/want an easy metric -> imperial or imperial -> metric cheat cheet, look here.
