1 Imperial pint = 0.568261485 liters
The reason for it to be this absurd number is explained in the Wikipedia page. I seems like the pint is defined as 1 eight of a gallon. And the imperial gallon (mind the “imperial” part, it defined by the British parliament in 1824) is based on ten pounds of distilled water at 62º F.
WTF?! This whole imperial system confuses me so much! Why did they define a unit to measure liquids in terms of the weight of some liquid at a designated temperature. And why that temperature and not any other?
I would really like to know the reason behind all this crazy system…
