Not really. There are a lot of really solid improvements since Morrowind, but everyone focuses on other things while ignoring what's good. Ie, conversations in Morrowind were awful. Seriously, 99% of all NPCs had exactly the same thing to say but in Skyrim you can actually get some useful information. NPCs vital to quests don't accidentally die in Skyrim.

Of course, exactly like Oblivion you must first get some mods to make it PC friendly.

I've definitely seen butter measured by sticks in recipes. That's why most sticks also include measurements along the side on the wrapping, so that you can easily get 1/2, 1/8, etc. Ie, cut directly into the butter and the wrapper where the line indicates then pull off the wrapper afterwords.

If it's in the US, are they really "imperial" measurements?

Also, one of my grandmothers used all sorts of extremely obscure measurements. She knew the difference between a dash of salt and a pinch of salt. I suspect many cooks even in super-genius-enlightened EU countries do the very same thing, no one's going to measure out .35ml of of vanilla, they're just going to add a little.

I don't think anyone at Youtube ever send out emails to all of its own employees saying "upload all the videos you can by monday or you're on my shit list!"
It's one thing to be unable to keep up with the take-down lists, and it's quite another to encourage your employers to contribute to the infringing.
