    Personally I wouldn't know. But, I think it depends on the state of the fish. If it's a quiescent fish then it's not a problem. But if it's an excited fish it could be a problem. You know squirming around trying to get out of where ever it is.

    Also the type of fish could change whether it was a problem or not. For instance if it was a Bone Fish (Abula Vulpes) or an American Sand Lance (Ammodytes Hexapterus) it could be problematic. Especially if you were in Church. However if it were just a Weakfish (Cynoscion Regalis) your may not have a problem transporting it, but other problems may, or may not, arise.

    So far we’ve purchased 7 inches of fish. If we purchased fish whose lengths are whole inches, how many different combinations of fish sizes could we have?
    Bonus: Do some research on "partitions of integers" (don’t be alarmed: I am not good at this…). and see if you can find how many ways we could get 10 or even 12 inches of fish.
    For 7 inches of fish, there are 15 possible combinations.
    Bonus: For 10 inches of fish, there are 42 possible combinations.
    For 12 inches of fish, there are 77 possible combinations.

    carrying around 12 inches of fish isn't the problem for me, it's the 12 gallons of water I have the problem with. It's no wonder I have backache

    Although I suppose I could lighten the load considerably by making them American gallons instead of British.
    What is an American gallon? Here a pint is 20 fl oz and a gallon is 8 pints.

    Edit: I went and looked on Wikipedia, seems you guys have different fluid ounces as well. Weirdos! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallon

    There is something fishy here. Did you copy that from my answer?

    Here are the numbers for all fish combinations from 1 to 15 inches:
    1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 15, 22, 30, 42, 56, 77, 101, 135, 176 - Ha!

    Ha, ha, ha, PeterBrown is trying to pull our leg!! Who would ever use a system as complicated as that?!!!

    Hey Murrayalex, here some interesting results from Glasgow University:
    "Dear Diary: the experts tell me you could be bad for my health".

    "The results showed that those who kept a diary recorded greater levels of anxiety and somatic symptoms such as headaches, feeling run down and aches and pains. On top of this, those who reread their entries reported even higher levels of anxiety and distress."

    However, it is not known yet whether the writing of a diary causes the problems, another explanation could be that people with health problems more often write diaries... quite surprising results anyway.

    I can never get my head around the American way of quoting weights in pounds, as in 'I weigh 200 pounds'. Why can't they just say 14 stone 4?
    (There are 14 pounds in a stone Clulup, and 16 ounces in a pound)
    Just discovered another variation between British and US Imperial units, a hundredweight here is 112 pounds, in the US it's 100 pounds, although it only persists in the building trade here.
    If you think that's complex have a read about our currency pre-1971.
    I hope Chick doesn't start bringing in more complexity to her questions, she may get completely different answers from me than she was expecting!

    No joke???

    Methinks in that case I have to pay more tribute to the elegance and simplicity of the measuring system of continental Europe. I mean, basically we only have the meter (about three feet), all the rest is deduced from that:

    Volume: One liter is the cube of one tenth of a meter.
    Weight: One kilogram is the weight of one liter of pure water.

    All the rest is just a multiple of meters/kilograms/liters, e.g. one kilometer obviously is 1000 meters (kilo=1000), one millimeter obviously is 1 meter divided by 1000 (milli=1/1000).

    Temperatures: 0 degrees Celsius: the freezing temperature of water,
    100 degrees Celsius: the boiling temperature of water.

    How easy life can be!

    The Imperial system did have its benefits, though currently we use a mix of the Imperial and the Metric system. One benefit is that the numbers used have multiple factors - so it's easy to work out that an eighth of a gallon is a pint for example or express things naturally in fractions. It's not that easy to do those kind of 'human friendly' calculation using litres or other metric units.
    I remember reading an article about how the kilogram is a very poorly defined unit, the official kilogram is a block of metal in Paris that is weighed once or twice a year to calibrate laboratories instruments, not a litre of water!

    I didn't expect you to write a diary (you seem to be of a quite healthy nature ), I just referred to you because the research was done in Scotland, where you obviously come from. Sorry for the confusion!

    See, you are the living proof that not only diaries, but also journals are risky! Forget that stuff, focus on the fun of TC!
