What the heck IS a stone anyhow?

Someone commented that they had lost "a stone" and I have seen it in several other people's postings. How much is a stone equivalent to?
In my head I am picturing a guy taking rocks out of his pockets while standing on a scale. ....... :-)

14 pounds. Give or take. It's an english thing.

It would be like if Wisconsiners (Wisconsites?) weighed things based on a brick of cheese.

I think.

OMG.... CHeese....laughing.
I get it now, and I am thinking about the equivalency possibilities.
3 bratwurst=1 brick of cheese=1/12 a keg of Old Milwaukee Beer.
The math is making me a little hungry..........

Hi a stone is exactly 14lbs. They use this term in the UK. I am 11 stone. We never weigh in lbs over there only stones and Kg.
