The Imperial system. It SUCKS. What I hate is how I WANT to learn Metric, but since I was taught Imperial all my life, I'll never know it. Main reason was my Republican father who said "the dumb Brit system is not needed in America". :roll:

I see no reason why not, and I'd happily go with the metric system, but I am not in charge of such things.

US date order is the main thing that gets me. No sense at all.

Sometimes I do wish I'd been raised to think in metric terms, since even with all the crazy 'murrican units, I find myself using some of the smaller units. After all, we don't really have much that can be comparable to millimeters and milliliters and milligrams. o3o

Haha, yeah, I don't think people even knew things that small existed back then (or did know but didn't have any practical application for it)

Then again, there are tiny units like grains and caliber and mils, but who even uses them? Well, except gunsmiths, but I doubt many people can think in such units readily.

Yeah. Some fine artisans and alchemists were probably an exception.
