EXACTLY. Imperial makes fuck-all sense and I don't know why people would want to stick with it. The argument of "we're used to it" is just stupid. Give it a couple of months and you'll soon be used to the new system. And it's not that hard to convert road speed limit signs and so forth. EVERYWHERE ELSE DID IT. FFS. If America's as great and smart as it thinks it is, it should be able to metrify in a flash.

It's interesting stuff when you're young. Once you have a car, it's nothing but a pain in the ass.

yes, and not to mention our cars' speedometres all have mph and kph on them, so it'd just be looking at one number instead of another. and luckily 40 kph is much slower than 40 mph so it's not like someone would go tearing down the road after the conversion feigning ignorance. if anything, people would go slower for a bit, which isn't all bad.

Yes, but then again, you have what, 60 million or so who voted for Bush. Reading a different number may just be a struggle for them.

I want to rig the Oscars so that they don't happen. Lame award shows for the PHAIL.

What, are you selling Varitek or something?

My vision's too poor for me to be allowed to drive. So no car for me!

That explains your love for trains.

Even us with 20/20 manage to fuck up driving somehow.

When I was little, my dream was to be a train driver. I'm sure my family would be rather unhappy if I dropped out of uni and did that - and they needn't worry, since nobody's stupid enough to let me drive trains with my vision!

Though I know the road rules extremely well. When I was little, my mother's local road map book had the road rules printed at the rear. Every time I was in the car, I read it. She soon got sick of me correcting her driving!

Temple Of Low Men? Huh. That and Woodface I think are markedly inferior to the eponymous album and Together Alone.

I bet Joshua Tree will be at #3.
