Metric value[edit]

What's a US quart in metric/SI? reference to another US unit (not the same as UK gallon) doesn't help. jimfbleak 08:28 24 Jun 2003 (UTC)

As the articles says 1.136 liters. IIRC a US quart and an Imperial quart are the same (their definitions are different though). --mav
A US & an imperial quart are only the same with respect to their ratios to other units of volumes (excluding fl. oz. & any cubic length). So yeah, a quart is 0.25 gal or 2 pints in both systems, in this way they are the same. But an imperial quart is still about 20% bigger than a U.S. one so in this respect they are different. ... Maybe that's what you mean by "IIRC" Jimp 03:41, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Colbert Report[edit]

Shouldn't this page be protected, wikiality was mentioned on Colbert again tonight? "If we believe there are 5 pints in a quart..." or something to that effect.RudeBII 06:43, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
