    Asking it twice won't help much. The same people see it both times.

    A bathtub is usually made for a person. In countries where they use the metric system they use meters to measure people and therefore bathtubs.

    'Murica just wanted to be unique, land of the free and all XD. But what do u want to measure in the bathtub? area? Weight? volume? perimeter? it really varies with what you want to measure @kfrench30

    bathtub is usually hollow and doesn't weigh much relatively to the transport.
