    What about yards! I have a yard behind my house! What's the deal with that?
    My yard is about 50 yards, 150 would be better though.

    Well, around here, many people use it to describe their home. For example 'Come and jam around ma yard innit'.

    1 g = 1 ml

    So weight in solids is the same as liquids. EASy!

    1 kg = 1 Litre.

    Can someone explain what "my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard" means...
    yeah, she's talking about Scotland Yard issuing a subliminal milkshake into society, which brings all the badly behaved boys to them to be questioned by her.

    Yeah but you said 'we weigh things in pounds or fluid ounces if its liquid'...
    Liquids in fluid ounces.

    Meaning we dont have stones, pebbles, rocks, boulders, liters, milliliters, kilograms, grams of any other weird measurement or weight, as far as I know.

    Nope, not stones or rocks, although I hear they are high in minerals, but my blender didnt like them. How much does a rock weigh anyhow??

    In lava form it is. Then it weighs the same as a yard.
    Is that a Scotland or a back yard?

    But you couldn't measure lava in fluid ounces, because the jug would melt.
    They put it in your biochemically lethal socks, where "Terry" would neutralise all thermal threats, until it dried, then measure the solid mass.
