You must remember one thing. A quart is one fourth of a gallon and is double of a pint. Thus 2 pints =1 quart
However, when it comes to pint, the imperial (British) pint is more than the US pint. This is because an imperial pint contains 20 fluid ounces while a US pint contains only 16 fluid ounces. So if you are a British sitting in a US pub, do not be surprised by the size of a pint of beer as it would be less than what you get in your country. Also remember the the imperial pint is 20% more than the US pint. A quart is one fourth of a gallon, whether you are in UK or US. The difference in volume may be there, but the relation between a quart and pint remains the same in both countries which is that a quart is double in volume to a pint.
Now that I know more about this subject than I ever intended to, I come to a conclusion: I really want to be a Canadian sitting in a British pub but I am totally flummoxed because I would now have to convert the whole caboodle into litres and if I consume even one pint, I won't be able to count anymore! I'll stick to good old H2O I think !
I also surmise that if I follow the above calculation, 2 Please equal 1 Thank You and they would be just a little more effused in Britain than in the US. Always remember that no matter where you vacation, one P is never enough because half of a Q is not adequate for any instance I can think of. A full Q is the minimum required (or 2 P's) and I guess the more P's you make use of, the Q's just keep following until no one knows who started this politeness fest nor what it is about anyhow!
Signing off before I lose my mind again and have to ask for help from the local mental people... I could certainly tell them a story that would earn me a long vacation there! I wonder if they could help me with my "R" blog?
