    Hey Austin, since you have pokemon in your mind lately, could you talk about this pokemon that has been bothering me, it's Cosmoem and it's said to have a height of 0.1meters yet weighting 999 kg being the heaviest pokemon ever. I'm definitely not good at physics or science in general but i just feel like there's something wrong about it. If it's actually normal then nvm all this

As the webpage explains above that chart, pre-decimal English currency denominations were abbreviated L/s/d, from the Latin libra/solidus/denarius, Roman coins whose names and relative values were used for medieval coins. Thus, a goose would cost *3* days' labor, not 6, a pound of cheese would be a quarter day's labor, etc.
