the metric system is so much easier, i've never understood why we haven't switched over. i was taught the same thing when i was a kid elfie, but we are still on the wacky american system of mixed measurements. base 10 math is a breeze. i can even deal with binary (base 2) and hexadecimal (base 16), but there is no logic to "standard" weights and measures.
The way that you wander is the way that you choose. The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder where the fair wind blows.
