Twitter Is Weird

Or Twitter is The Twilight Zone. I can’t decide which.

I actually got into this conflict, though without engaging family members. I read, in some cookbook, that wet and dry measures are different. And it may be weights are not volume, but unless you are measuring dry by weight and liquid by volume, the dry cup and the liquid cup are the same volume.

There’s an easy way to prove this....(of course it’s easier to prove IRL than via communications technology).

  1. I love the story of how Edison told a university educated worker in his lab to tell him the volume of a light bulb, the guy started measuring it all over the place, planning on doing some impressive calculations. Edison in disgust picked up the bulb, filled it with water and emptied it into a graduated cylinder. College can be hazardous to your intelligence.
