It seems Americans will measure with anything rather than use the metric system if this recent tweet by @41actionnews in #Kansas is any, er, measure! A UK spec washing machine is 84cm, therefore this guestimate would be approx 6m. I’m no fan of #metrification but even I can visualise what six metres would be in spatial measurement.

When driving on single-track roads in the UK, please always use passing places rather than attempt to squeeze past an oncoming vehicle by driving on the verge. They are provided for a reason! Verges are often very soft or there may well be a hidden deep ditch right by the road. This mishap occurred recently on the Isle of Harris. #NC500 #passingplaces #smartcar #smart #visitscotland
