Comments on this teaser

 Posted by Nerine 01/22/09 Yay, first Comment. I got the yards but not the chain. Nice teaser. :) Posted by dancingd3 01/22/09 2nd comment! I got the yards part too, but definitely not the chain. Where (or when) is that unit of measurement used? Good, but hard. :) Posted by bramfarm 01/22/09 Same here. An explanation would make it more interesting. :) Posted by Lord_Hawk 01/22/09 Sorry, this is old english imperial measurements. I should have put in an explanation - never even thought about it. A good example of where the chain is used is on the cricket field, where the distance between the stumps is exactly 22 yards, or 1 chain. 10 chains make a furlong, which is obviously used in horseracing. But cricket isn't very well'known in the US, or so I'm led to believe! Thanks for all the positive comments. Posted by fame 01/22/09 EASY 8) :evil: Posted by Hadleigh 03/09/09 Very easy and I got both the yards and the chain. Maybe because I remember the measurements from school. Wow that makes me feel old :D :D
