    Bigger than pebbles but smaller than boulders.

    British use stones...it's 14 Lbs. So 14 stone 2 Lbs would be 170 Lbs.

    I feel like it's a way to force me to do math when I don't want to LOL.

    Ha...

    My wife is first generation U.S. and grew up in a British family so she uses stones sometimes among other British-isms...fortunately, she's never been more than 10 stone, so the math is pretty easy...if it goes above 10 then I have to get the calculator out.

    A but if British confusion where they break their lb weight down into larger units of 14lbs each, called Stones.
