    I'm one of those that just never caught on to the whole metric thing ... we switched over when I was at just the right age to not have yet learned everything needed about Imperial, so it was really hard to grasp learning the Metric Basically what I'm saying is I don't have a clear understanding of either HAHAHA!

    I'll always be 5 feet f'all. I'll always know my weight in pounds only. Temps in Metric mostly though, unless I have to convert for our Yank friends

    Revised imperial units could have worked. I invented it.

    10 inches in a foot, 10 feet in a yard, 1000 yards in a mile.. Every single spedometer, measuring tape, and ruler in the world would have had to change..

    The big downfall...Going down the hiway at 20 mph just doesn't SOUND very good.

    I once made the mistake of asking my grandfather how the old english money system worked. BIG MISTAKE!

    Some Americans got really concerend when i told them that the speed limits on our highways are between 90-110. Then they cottoned on to the fact that we go in km/h.

    beer over here is 37.5cL for a stubbie and 75cL for a long neck.

    You've still got stubbies?

    What comes in stubbies? VB?

    I haven't seen a stubby here since I was in school.

    The only beer we have over here that is truly still a stubbie is VB but we call all bottles around the 375mL mark stubbies now. I suppose its the same as no matter what brand it is you still call 'cling wrap' 'Glad Wrap'.

    I see the wisdom in your thinking, i too like ice cream. I too have not gone back and counted. Coincidence? I think not.
