Hmmmm. I can't think of any reason why an Australian would *want* to weigh a
sheep, sure it wasn't the Irish? lol
I'm afraid not, Sue. However, talking of IQ reminds me of the camparison of
IQ testing with the way (so I'm assured) that Australians weigh sheep.
Apparently they construct a crude balance or fulcrum, get a long pole, place
a basket at each end, put the sheep in one basket and then fill the other
with stones until they exactly balance.
Then they guess the weight of the stones :-)
