Maybe some of you world wide travelers out there can answer my questions about this calendar. It appears to be a calendar to me, but I can't make sense out of the way it is set up. Looks like in Europe they have up to seven weeks in a month. It looks more like the ones I am used to if you lay it on its side, but then the numbers are harder to read. Is this the normal way calendars are printed over there?
OK, she also bought this folding measuring stick from the same guy.
It seemed a little strange to me at first glance. It didn't end at 3 or 4 feet, in fact it didn't even end at an even inch. What the heck is going on. Then I realized it came from Europe so it must be metric and sure enough, when I turned it over, it ended in one meter:
Here is a complete view of the metric side:
Yep, the one side is marked "METER" at the beginning of the rule:
And the other side is marked "LONDON" for the English side.
I have never seen a folding scale, or for that matter, any scale that was marked "LONDON". Does that mean that other parts of England use a different scale and this one is only good in London?
Oh wait a minute. It was made in Germany. OK, I guess one side is to be used only in Germany and the other in London.
Now, I suppose Interpol will be after me because I have this measuring device in the U.S.A? Don't tell them where I live, OK? I guess I better hide out the rest of the day, but I want you all to have a great day beyond what can be measured by any measuring device, you hear?
