Aha! Does that mean a pint of water weighs 1lb?

Interesting. I did not know.

It was under £1 for ½litre of beer when I got here. In fact it was
under US$1/ US 1pt. Now it's a bit more.

Cheapest I had was CzK 17 for half a litre. At the time that was about 50¢.

It is one of the things I miss most in lockdown. And there's no
electricity supply in my man-cave/basement so I can't even go down
there and play with my old computers. :-(
