A World of Metric

Buzzfeed had an article today about all the countries in the world that haven’t embraced the metric system.  There are but three left:  Burma, Liberia and the U.S.  This is, like, embarrassing.

Actually, most engineers, scientists and technicians in our country have used the metric system for many years; even car mechanics use metric (and well as English) wrench sets for use on foreign vehicles.  Our country’s general refusal to adapt is, however, a harbinger of its eventual collapse.

Average America needs to get off its collective couch and get with it.

While we’re at it, we also need to successfully wean ourselves from the QWERTY keyboard to something more ergonomic, before we’re left with nothing but wimpy handshakes from all that carpal tunnel.
