units of metric mass vs units of customary mass

The metric system was designed expressly for the internatioal trading
of commercial quantities; and as such 'cut to the quiick' with a
physical artifact that could be directly compared with real quantities
for that purpose. The metric system is not designed to show how
quantities of matter are comprised so that a net force (f), divided by
the acceleration (a) that it causes is a Constant; that is equivalent
to the ratio of a body's weight (w), divided by the acceleration at
which it will free fall.

The customary system always did, and still does that, but remains
historically encumbered with a lot of unessary and extraneous baggage.

But I like your new name, although I'm sure you don't
get the fun of the pun.

The unit of metric mass consists of ONE slug of platinum-irridium metal
which weighs as close to the weight of one decimeter of pure water at
its maximum density as they can build it; of which copies are
distributed to participating countries so they can use it to compare
quantities for international commerce.

The units of customary mass consist of all of the fundamental units:
Force, weight, and acceleration: So that the units of customary mass -
called a slug, are 1 slug = 1 pound, divided by 1 foot per second, per
second; equals 32# per 32' per second, per second.

It isn't possible, and there is not an artifact that will include all
of the combinations that constitute a slug.

I found a slug in my garden this morning.

A 38 caliber slug.

Was it beyond the three pound limit, i.e. flat?

It was flat, after I slugged or pounded on it, 2 and 1/2 times.
