    I'm an engineer...
    The decimal metric system is the only one that has the characteristic to be coherent: every unity is a combination of seven foundamental ones, and every measure can be expressed in multiples or submultiples of that...

    Yes... but I'm an Italian girl, fighting with the Anglo-Saxon system...
    You know... the weight in pounds seems bigger than in kilograms...;) .

    I'm joking, the Anglo-Saxon System is less coherent, but is very used, for example even in Italy we express the altitudes (aeronautical) in feet!

    Un etto = 100 grams
    Etto is an abbreviation of ettogramma (hectogram - from Greek hecto meaning 100).

    Mentre si dice "10 euro" e non "10 euri" perché la "o" non è una desinenza maschile, si parla tranquillamente di "chili" e di "etti", dove dovrebbe valere lo stesso principio.:)
