Instead of the "Imperial" system? Mass Riots? Protesting? A call for impeachment? Does anyone think he would ever try to do something like change us over to the metric system or something similar?

I think it's in progress as we get more and more crap from overseas measured in metrics. I'd have to get a handy converter to take with me everywhere otherwise I'd be out to pasture trying to figure it all out.

Never learned metrics.

It works fine for science but it isn't on a human scale.

Those that use it for everyday usage and defend it blindly are fuckin stupid robots as much as any brain dead TV watcher.

Changing standards of time, date and measurement are known as "slow" leverage principles of governance.

The idea that only a few counties use the Imperial system is telling. A form of cultural diffusion.

When gas shoots up again I figure he will executive order metric system so gas will seem cheaper and he'll call it keeping up with world standard or some bullshit.

I don't care myself it is easy to convert so who cares.

The blond girl when asked if higher gas prices bothered her and she said "no I always put 10 dollars in"

We know from experience in Canada that it is just a recipe for a fucking. All of the sudden people don't know how much a gallon of gas costs when it's measured in litres. So the gas companies can jack up the price wildly and the average idiot can't figure out he just got fucked.

Same thing with meat. Everybody knows how much the pay a pound for hamburger. Start selling it in Kilograms ans you cause confusion. When the customer is confused, you fuck him in the ass before he figured it out. That's how business works.

All that and more is exactly what happened in Canada when we made the switch.
