Dog units

rather than arguing metric vs. imperial...

What about the "dog year" as the fundamental unit of time, "dog light-year" as unit of distance, and "dog pound" as the unit of mass? Cats might be a better source for the unit of electrical charge.

       Then this site should be called "Halfbarkery"

       xenzag, I don't get your comment. Something wrong with the name, or the idea? I can see how it could fall into one or more of the deletion-prone categories, but seems consistent with other ideas in the "units" section.

       Hiya [Ford], I think this stands up as a legitimate idea - a new system of units. I'm not voting for it as you haven't really thought it out or explained it very well. I'm not voting against either because it contains multiple instances of the word "dog".

       What about not starting lame ideas with the phrase 'what about.'

       Due to dog relativity, would a dog pound be less than or more than a human pound?

       dog years is a sliding scale so its not much good as a unit of anything - if that makes sense

       [Ford] - you could be right.... ideas which are solely naming systems are sometimes ok. [m-f-d] retracted

       its a bit stupid though... dogs are so last year - lets try NEWTS.

       car? my fiesta is a bit feisty...

       I can't disagree about it's being stupid. Silly, anyway. But that doesn't seem to disqualify entries.

       This is a bad idea.
