Way back when I was in grade school we were taught standard weights and measurements...like a foot is 12 inches, it takes 12 to make a dozen, a yard is 36 inches...and a pound is 16 ounces....some where along the way things changed for the pound...got a pound of bacon lately...it is 12 ounces, a full quarter pound lighter than the pound of bacon of yesteryear....can of Spam..use to be 16oz...now 12 oz...pound of dried beans..12 oz.....did someone change the standards while I was sleeping
