    In old-style apothecary measurements, ʒ = dram (or drachm), ℈ = scruple, and ♏ = minim. :-}

    [edit] The only problem I can see with apothecary puns is I think I just made most, maybe all, of them.

          *gesture of revealed wisdom* Everyone's an apothecary. *nodnod*

          Then again, the whole system of measurements is archaic these days, which I suppose is just as well. Metric, yay!

            Metric? Boo! (B)

            Get thee to an apothecary.

            Metric is for the robots. They should have made it base 16 at least. But humanity needs (and loves) the dozen, and all its dirty fractions. Feet forever! And inches, if you don't mind. (I mean, just ask any guy if he'd mind having a few more inches to play with)
