Where have you been? The US measurements are old British units. We will be dragged kicking, screaming, scratching, biting, hair pulling and most likely shooting into the metric system. We will be asking questions later, mostly about how many did we shoot, how many times did we have to reload and if there were any French. Soda is in liters when in bottles but in ounces in cans. Nutrition is in calories/grams/milligrams when the package is ounces/pounds/gallons. At the doctors, you get medicine in measured in mg, weighed in pounds, height measured in inches/feet, and bodily fluids measured in ml/dl. For the cars tires are in inches, fuel in gallons and go miles per hour. All the belts, screws and other parts are in mm (on the "foreign" and "domestic" brands) A side note- The Pontiac G6 is made in Australia and is domestic The Honda Accord is made in Ohio and both the Mercedes and BMW SUVs are made in South Caroilna and are "foreign" Ben Franklin revised/created our "English". There are 280,000,000 Americans vs 50,000,000 English, yet we speak "English". And, why is the Royal Family's motto in French?
