This day in History: Napoleon and the Metric System

February 12, 1812, Napoleon introduced a system known as mesures usuelles which used the names of pre-metric units of measure, but defined them in terms of metric units. He implimented this in all areas occupied by his army.

After the Congress of Vienna in 1815, France lost the territories that she had annexed; some, such as the Papal States reverted to their pre-revolutionary units of measure, others such as Baden adopted a modified version of the mesures usuelles, but France kept her system of measurement intact.

  4. I haven't read many menages, but I love when they're hot together (in the bed). :P And it's interesting to see how other people react to them :D

    Happy V-Day!

  5. I love menage stories, especially, m/f/m in a committed relationship. That foray into the forbidden is just too luscious, imagining two men totally focused on pleasuring a woman. Especially love the emotional connection of all three lovers.

  6. I love menage romances because 2 is always better than one!:-) m/f/m are always my favorites, but I don't like it when the girl wusses out about it, which always seems to happen!!!!

  7. Some interesting answers! And I love them all. Thanks for all your responses, winners will be announced at the end of the week!

  8. I think the third person adds to the excitement. I'm just getting my feet wet with these so I'm not sure what I'd like to see yet. I imagine I'll come across it soon enough!

  9. A menage gives more. More erotic, more exciting, more everything.


  10. I want the menage to stay a menage. I like it to be a three way relationship, not just sex! And my favorites are M/M/M.

  11. The menage books that I read feature at least 2 guys. Lots of sexy males definitely make anything better in my opinion.
