Would you approve the US joining the metric system? (meters, celsius, etc..)

    Yeah as a teen it seemed like a good idea but I moved on shortly after.

    Most Coke is made with corn syrup but it is possible to get Coke made with actual sucrose, which many say
    tastes better. Both are sugar, although corn syrup doesn't come in cubes. But the point-- total grams simple
    sugar-- is the same.

    Those cubes looked metric to me.

    Oh c'mon now brianswindall, you wanna make a big deal about something with you living in Nova Scotia, man we got more carjackers in most of our big cities than the entire population of Nova Scotia, let's ask them what they think the size of lug nuts should be.

    So a metric ton is less than a US ton, and you’re saying size doesn’t matter? We even have amps that go to twelve ! The early deluxe and I believe some other Fender amps.

    Lets not forget the ever clever English:

    A long ton is defined as exactly 2,240 pounds. The long ton arises from the traditional British measurement system: A long ton is 20 hundredweight (cwt), each of which is 8 stone (1 stone = 14 pounds).

    I’m guessing you don’t like coke. Its not required that you drink it. That’s your choice. Haters gonna hate.

    Nope, read. A metric ton is more than a US ton, not that it matters

    Get over it, metric is king ... unless I'm working on old cars.

    Everything's easier. Except changing.

    However, I'm fluent in both and tend to go back and forth for no particular reason. But, I do like metric (millimetres) when measuring nut width, etc.

    I like a weird mismatch.

    Just to, you know, confuse Aliens from Pandora X.

    How does a 600 gram maple neck sound bolted to a 3 pound 13 ounce ash T body? Pretty good and therefore, what exactly is the problem? :^)

    Metric is for people who can't handle Fractions.
