Its your insistance on using old imperial measurement! i mean even the Democratic People's Republic of Wheredafuckarewestan see the metric system as a step forward but NOOOOOOOOOOOO you guys insist on measuring things in imperial kings penises and old 8th century camels scrotums in your day to day lives.

You still use 'Feet' and 'inches' dated back when the Shah of Ivegotahugecockistan got his feet measured for a set of new sandals! What the fuck is that all about?

Quarts, fluid ounces and all that i mean what the hell is going on here? Does anybody still remember how big the King of Itchyballsistan's mug was? Yards? What is that? Is that the size of the Emperor's stretched ball sack over an old lute or something?

Seriously WTF is going on here?

What does the unit of measurement matter, so long as its uniform?

I for one wish we would switch to the metric system. Much easier to do things with.

I am disappointed. After the topic, I was expecting at least 4 or 5 pages of items.

This one is so far down the list, I had forgot about it.

Although I would have to concur, since it seems like everyday at work I am explaining the lbs. is a weight measurement and kg's are mass and if they want to convert them, they need to tell me where they are at.....

Better than using that French system you guys play with. We don't cater to their ridiculous antics.

Apparently you nancies aren't quite as opposed.

I switch back and forth from Inches to millimeters, quarts to liters, pounds to kilograms daily; I guess that makes me bilingual.

I don't care either way, I have Tools in Standard and Metric and Craftsman makes more every day
As a Machinist I hated Metric Threads and Metric anything.
As a Mechanical Maintenance Man I liked Metric and there are conversion charts available everywhere so I just used them if I needed too, no big deal to me

Regardless of what measuring system we use, we can still kick your ass.
Every day of the week, twice on Sunday.

Hell, the state of RI alone could lay Queensland to waste.

So....Bugger off.

<­BR>



FWIW: they tried teaching (converting) to metrics when I was in grammar school.
Epic Failure is a NICE way to describe it.

Sure, over 200 years ago they held the deed to a lot of dirt and trees. Your country voluntarily converted to their "system." I suppose you prefer a half liter of beer to a proper pint as well. Now go back to playing with your wallabies and stay out of grown country's business.

Nanometres (1 millionth of a metre) are also metric. Metres are not the base measurement as yards are not either in imperial.

There was an attempt to push a switch to metric when I was a kid, I think in the mid 70s. Never caught on beyond putting kilometers on some road signs. We have such a large country our oddball measurement system is not a big deal. Plenty of americans go their whole life without needing to know what a kilometer is



The french just dont have the influence they used to have in their ex-colony

Heck I remember back in the mid 60's when I was in grammer school, teachers were telling us that we were switching to the metric system and we needed to learn it.

Awesome, a barrel that is over 17 inches across, but why are you still threading it imperial. And I think 1 billion threads per inch is too fine...if it was equiv. to an AR in thread length, you would have to turn the flash hider 5 million times to torque it down....
