Cool but does anybody care about the decimals?


jaa101

Many of these are wrong in any case. They've converted 100 kg to 220.4624 pounds but the correct figure is actually slightly less than 220.4623; it's worse than simply a round-off issue in the result. Some of the last digits are actually off by two. And, of course, the correct principle is to not increase the number of significant figures in situations like this. Since none of the kg figures have more than two significant figures it makes no sense to provide more than two or, at most, three significant figures in the conversions. Another issue is that, in cases where the trailing digits are zero, they've suppressed them, giving the impression of less precision in those cases. All this would be understandable if the chart were created by a random gym worker but it appears to be from converters360.com, presumably a web site whose one job was to get this right. No wonder their domain is now for sale and the page in question was last archived on 6 April 2018, see: https://web.archive.org/web/20180406004322/http://converters360.com/weight/kilograms-to-pounds-conversion.htm They even created the table as an image, preventing anyone from copying the numbers as text, and why use old-style numerals with proportional (instead of tabular) spacing in a table? Then they've printed the converted figures close to the wrong column of kg figures. So bad.

Nope


DontSeeWhyIMust

Every weightlifter who actually wants to gain dials in their lifts to the hundredth of a gram /s


mvgr9011

Four decimal places? What are they weighing? Hmmm...


a4techkeyboard

Weights?


Spillmill

The stuff they use before and after their sessions.

Evidently, while pound may have gotten some popularity in Rome, sig fig has not.


MarsTaco

When in Rome…


ThinkBlue87

Holy sig figs

I like how they shorten kilograms to kg but then shorten pounds to pound


vatoniolo

If you actually had American clients you'd need a few more columns


SulzAlexUt

It's the weights they lift not there actual weight. But yes Americans are fat.


antiquemule

What if they’re British? They need it in stones and pounds.


grimreaper1414

I’d assume this weight chart is for weight lifting, and not body weight. In which case Kg would be correct.


antiquemule

Ah right. There was much talk of Americans less than 100kg, ho, ho....


the_spondulux

It's not the 1970s anymore.


antiquemule

Oh, don't we do that any more? I left the UK in 1985.


cangooner65

Could they also do Kilometres to Football fields


2020bowman

If an American is too stupid to convert.... they should spend more time in school and less time in the gym


lastofusgr8tstever

If only we all had these tiny computers with us which all have Google which will convert nearly anything for us in seconds


justbiteme2k

Americans __less__ than 100kg...


JSCruz-

its for the weights, not for themselves. Sounds like you have never been to a gym


justbiteme2k

I'll have you know I had a gym membership for over two years and I went twice thank you very much. Now I go outside for exercise rather than drive my car there and move about on a stationary bike/treadmill.


FunkySjouke

Neat I'm 120 pounds


Datapower

Why bother Make the idiots learn metric


Ifritmaximus

But I’m over 100kg


Ok-Mammoth1143

So I guess something can’t weight 12 pounds in Kilos


GeeshPolice

I always just double it. Close enough for *lifting something*.


carlmankert1

Gonna need another column
