Fun with metric conversions

Everyone should know this: how much do you weigh in kilograms (kg) and how tall are you in meters (m)?

For instance, I weigh 61kg and I'm 1.75m tall. I live 16.4km (kilometres) from work.

This is a good conversion chart. This is a much more comprehensive measurement conversion chart. But if you simply want to know how much you weigh in kilograms, best to just plug in the numbers in a Google search query like this:

"135 lbs to kg"

Hit enter and voila!
