Uhhh, yeah...... about that. You see, America is (for whatever reason) kind of behind the times on this whole "proper weights and measures" thingy the rest of the world seems to have adopted.

I don't know why. But that's the way it is.

Easier number to remember:
Standard unit of distance: 100 or 12
Water freezes at: 0 or 32
Basic unit of weight: 1,000 or 16

Totally makes perfect sense to stick with 12, 32 and 16 amirite? :-S

My nana was always trying to teach me imperial measurements when I was little (because that's what her generation used), and my mum was like "what are you teaching him that nonsense for?" :-D

You should run for office on the metric system platform, I am sure you would get lots of support...

You're not cheering for the C's, you're just cheering against the Heat. :-D

Oh man, I was SO happy at the end of the first half when Wade and LeBron had like 13 turnovers between them and the Heat scored only 30 points. :-D
