I had no idea there were different systems! You learn something everyday is seems. Just out of curiosity, are there many people in England, (or Austarlia for that matter), who are considered billionaires by Brittish reckoning?
Ack, spelling errors! Take the extra "t" from "Brittish", and use it to replace the "s" in "is". Thanks!
... and swap the "a" and "r" in "Austarlia".
Are there many people in England Austarlia who are considered billionaires by British reckoning? I doubt it but you never know. Of course it would be easier in Australia because the Aussie dollar is worth less than the UK pound.
If it weren't for currency fluctuations the Aussie dollar would be worth half a UK pound: we went decimal by converting 10 shillings to a dollar.
