Two things Fred:

Last one first, ok? What in hell is the relevance to the Yoga positions and positions related to accidents and drunken stupor?

And first one last. For once there is something in the US where a tradition is almost impossible to break. Imagine that. The US was going to officially change over to the metric system, back in the 70s, but there was so much opposition to it, the government gave up trying. Now its just a second measuring, in smaller letters.

And in truth, I never do one of the things the image shows. In fact, I don't think anyone thinks in terms of 'yards per mile'. I haven't the slightest idea of how many yards are in a mile. I use 'feet per mile'. But I still think in terms of metres for distance, because of my military training. When I give directions in distance, I always tell people to go "such and such metres, turn left, and go another 150 metres to................." I just do.

But try getting me to think in terms of volume in litres? Forget it: ain't gonna happen. I'll stick with tradition

As for the 'day, month, year' thing. I automatically do that anyway, so I'm already there. S5
John; are you a special case or do more poeple talk in "meters" in the US?

I'm a special case. I never hear anyone talking in metres, other than ex-military.

Same thing with the 'zero-vs-O' fiasco. Most people still use the letter 'O' when talking numbers. Any time they do, I always repeat what they said but insert the 'zero' and place emphasis on it.

Hilarious. Much appreciated.

Yet when I produce a manual to show DIY'ers how to build a background playscape or a barn, I need to convert all the measurements into both Feet and inches, and then into m and cm. What's worse, is the accompanying copy in multiple languages. I haven't had to do one in Klingon yet - but I know it's coming.

I do not understand the punchline of the last one....

.....the joke is Africans as scientists? I laughed at that, but is that all?
Yeah, my same thinking.

You get it.

I didn't mean to be racist, my point was more about the African continent: We can be lucky if we find two scientist and one lab there.

Now this is a prelude to a debate I'll open as soon as I hae time...

I'm looking forward to you posting this. But just what is Monsanto doing that is going to 'Stop' mankind? And stop us from what? Are you talking about genetically modified corn?
This is why I got rid of my motorcycle decades ago. You can never be too careful.

The motorbike was traveling at approximately 85 mph. The car driver was talking on a cell phone when she pulled out from a side street, apparently not seeing the motorcycle. The car had two passengers and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them. All three died instantly.

At least the driver won't have her head up her arse any longer.
I have never owned a motorcycle for this reason. I watched a guy on a motorcycle being a dumbass get turned to mist and a smear on Loop 375 in El Paso. Sort of sealed the deal on any future motorcycle desires.

Also, if people who talked or texted on cell phones while driving all died in flaming wrecks, I would feel little pity for them.
