I was born in Copenhagen Denmark in 1932 ---- What was the measuring system ? STUPID ? no SUPER STUPID. ( Danish garbage). British system UK ? ---stupid in 2004. American system 2004 ? ---STUPID. Why do I keep saying STUPID ? ------because I know they all have to go to Metric and Decimal like it or NOT. And for every day procrastinating ---the cost goes UP. (is that stupidity or not ? ) Chinese system 2004 ? ---smart ----they burned all UK rulers and garbage and went Metric overnight .(under Mao). SMART to do ? ----I say yes indeed. Sweden swapped traffic patterns overnight ? Smart ? yes ---costly but smart. Waiting makes it more costly. So I say hanging on to the old British crap ? is stupid. So who is it that resist the change ? ----The shortsighted greedy stupid bastards --- who cares more about a dollar in the pocket(now) than the FUTURE of the Nation. What about Canada ? ----STUPID ---- the wimpy bastards in Ottawa did not have the guts to say ---BAN the old system period. ----Do like China go all the way. Period. ----------- or you will be kissing Pekings ass in the future. IMHO. Loren what do you think ? am I on the Soap Box ? . Great blast for the end of 2004 ---say I . Safeway grocery shopping ? ---take a close look and you will understand what I am saying. ---------- Safe Way ? my ass ---they rip you off right and left. Hope they sue me ----that would be MEAT on the plate for me. Am I saying these systems were STUPID from day one ? NO NO. I am saying they are OUTMODED. Is this a CRUSADE ? of mine ? yes go METRIC. America is a UK clone ---and the system is outmoded.. I worked and attended school in UK and USA, ------- IMHO they need the Metric and Decimal system. Was I stupid ? when Canada changed to metric ? YES I could have had all my tools for free. ----too late now. Are the rules of the ROAD universal ? all over the world ? ---YES and so should measuring systems be. IMHO. Those rules ? on the ocean and in the air. not in Picadilly Square. The Frenchies got us by the ass ---they got that Platinum meter rod in the basement in Paris. Chiraq got Bush¨ outwitted on that one. It really should be in the UN building. I see that Platinum is going through the roof price wise. Do NOT throw those Platinum plugs in the garbage. Is Metric easy to learn ? -----super easy IMHO. Hagar . The Metric Nut.
