<GoldenSandslash> I wish America would switch to the metric system. <Cockroach_> you'd just end up with a mixed system like the UK or Canada and it'd be a pain in the ass <GoldenSandslash> No it wouldn't.
<GoldenSandslash> Also, even if we end up with a mix at first, eventually down the line (maybe a generation or two later), we'd end up on pure metric, as people realize that it is objectively better. <GoldenSandslash> And imperial would fall out of favor. <Cockroach_> hasn't happened in canada and the uk, they started around the time we were going to, but backed out <Cockroach_> they still have miles on the roads in uk and fahrenheit on all the dials in canada <Cockroach_> :P <Cockroach_ > beer is still pints <Cockroach_> people are ft/inches, and lbs <Cockroach_> etc <GoldenSandslash> Because beer makes you drunk and stupid, so of course you'll use the stupider one. :P <mainstreet> hahahaha
