Over the counter medicines are allowed by your “freedom of choice” to offer only teaspoons and tablespoons.Why not just create a new measurement unit for each circumstance—like medieval cultures did?The non-system we use in the US, measures feet in barleycorns (three barleycorns in an inch you know), to determine shoe size, instead of millimeters. My essay might help you with context when considering this question.But far more important, the very thesis of in the US, which does not allow me to purchase metric tools—despite my desires as a consumer.
