Just thought to bring it up to the "front page".
Yep, am very 'lenient' as far as "comments" go, since they are, actually, available to every Firkin nutcase - but hey, please try to keep them along the premise that intelligent and well read, even "educated" (whatever that means. Experienced?) humans can vaguely understand.
[a 'firkin' for those who want to get to basic words, and understanding of - originated from "Old Dutch". (and no, am not going to try to explain that region of the "European" part of the planet).
It is, apparently, "one fourth" - or a 'quarter'. Further, it was an old 'trading' measure. One quarter of a 'barrel'. A 'barrel', during the old, sailing ship technology, trading days, had a specific 'size'. Which, basically, every 'honest' "trader" agreed upon.
Um, from what i can gather from eclectic reading .. the Hanseatic league of Traders would be horrified by the "dishonesty" of 'traders' .. today.
Hoooo boy, cat among pigeons, What, today - defines "honesty"?
