Ton of Gold

enable images!

I have been reading through the Bible this year and this comic came to mind when reading in 1 Kings with the temple preparations. Also after looking up 'ton' vs 'tonne' I came to the shocking realization that neither are 2,000 pounds. But that's what I learned back in grade school! Apparently there are short and long tons too - why is this unit used so many different ways? OH American tons are 2,000 pounds per this article here and that explains why I learned it that way since I am American. 

S: And I want to use a ton of gold!
A: Ok, how much are you thinking?
S: ... a ton.
A: Can you be more specific?
S: 2,000 pounds.
