Re: "250 grams (1 pound)"
I'd go with the "WTF?" reaction to 1 Pound = 250g ... that said, if you meander across to Germany, you'll find that a Pound is accepted as 500g. Confused the heck out of me for a long time! Still nowhere near 250g, but is at least a nice, clean integer multiple gets our 250g to 500g. Is there a Hun somewhere, editing reports? (Disclaimer: I am allowed to say that as I am one these days!).
A single malt. Because Paris is indeed lovely.
