a term used to describe a person, group of people, or country that uses an antiquated system of weights and measures. this system might use measurements like feet, pounds, yards, ounces, stones, leagues, fathoms, cubits, hogs heads, miles, stones throws, gallons, cups, quarts, teaspoons, inches, etc.
the united states is measurementally challenged, as we have still not converted to the metric system. the old system is way retarded.
