I know there are four pecks to a bushel and how many pints in a quart and all that but how many sh*tloads are in a metric f*ckton.

That was my guess too.

Is it an African or European f*ckton?

I think it depends on the density of the Sh*t.

Sh*tdensity in descending order:

Bullsh*t > Cowsh*t > Horsesh*t > Dogsh*t > Moosesh*t >Whalesh*t > Tebow

Moisture content might play into it as well. Steamers tend to be heavier, I would think..

They're fluid measurements - the variables mentioned above don't come into play. The ratio will always be 3.57 to 1.

If you are uncomfortable dealing with metric units, the "American" ratio is: 7.62 to 1.

Next you will be calculating the Plank Stupidity Constant which is the point at which mental density becomes great enough to suck the intelligence out of the surrounding space.
