Re: [RC]   Other nations and endurance

Our government tried to initiate the whole metric thing in the USA and some of us never caught on...that is, we couldn't translate.  I guess the government gave up.  We're still using our own bizarre method of describing distances and volume, etc.  Maybe metric makes more sense, but we're used to our methods and it's a lot of work to learn a new "language."  <g>

Subject: [RC] Other nations and endurance

Whilst we’re on the subject (and I’m probably going to be flamed anyway)…..WHEN are you guys gonna catch up with the rest of the world and go metric??
Kilometers, anyone?
