Marc,

Since you have sworn obedience to the King and respect to the laws of the Belgian people, a toise is nineteen decimeter: Code civil - Burgerlijk werboek articles 677, 678. (French toise)unless you're planting trees, in which case it's actually 2 meters =Veldwetboek =Dutch period toise).

And if you mind that decimeter, we can always start a civil war. The Fronde was the direct result of Mazarin's edict of the Toise imposing a standard measurement troughout the kingdom.

Best regards,

Bruno
