My car gets 40 rods to the hogshead, and that’s the way I likes it!

By 2010, measuring land by the acre will be illegal in the European Union. Maybe it makes more sense to use hectares; maybe not. But in 2010, registering land by the acre will be a crime.

A punishable crime.

Think about that.

  1. I’m not sure quite what to feel when my hyperbole (http://www.nostate.com/116/the-penalty-is-always-death/) starts approaching reality…

    point taken. there is the principle of the thing to consider.

    but truth be told, the hectare is logical and reasonable unit of measure, and rather easily converted from acres in the case of argument (1 acre=0.405 hectare).

    acres outlawed though? it bears the foul odor of a nanny-state.
