I don't know if I'm last to the party here or not, but did you know that google will do unit conversions to you?

Just type into the search box:

14.5 kilowatts to horsepower

What's the temperature Kenneth?

How tall am I?

It won't do viscosity, however. No newton second per meter squared to centistoke conversions for you.

Did you know: avoirdupois can also mean fatness? As in, President William Howard weighed nearly 160 kg (350 lbs if the avoirdupois system you prefer) near the end of his presidency. Taft was a man of considerable avoirdupois.

Why did I use the unweildy germanic verb placement in my parenthetical there? Down the stairs my hat please throw!
