Why Some Countries Can’t Go Metric

If the metric system did ever take over, we’d have to change our thinking to the following:

  • A miss is as good as 1.1 kilometers.
  • Put your best 0.3 of a meter forward.
  • Spare the 5.03 meters and spoil the child.
  • Twenty-eight grams of prevention is worth 453 grams of cure.
  • Give a man 2.5 centimeters and he’ll take 1.06 kilometers.
  • Peter Piper picked 8.8 liters of pickled peppers.
