The only part of the move to metric that will cause me problems, is switching my gasoline. It's a pain to figure mileage when I buy gasoline at places that sell in liters or Imperial gallons.

And I suppose binders designed for 8" by 11" won't quite fit standard paper.

But for the most part what's the big deal? Do people make conversions when they buy whiskey in fifths, milk in quarts, and cola in liters? No. When the speed limit is in K/h, I look at the K/h line in my speedometer. How long will it take me to learn my height and weight in metric? 2x4 wood isn't 2"x4" anyway.

When I was flying, I could look up and tell how high a cloud was (or look down and see if I was in landing pattern altitude. But international pilots don't seem to have trouble switching.

I don't know, but maybe the biggest adjustment will be for cooks using old cookbooks, measuring cups, and measuring spoons. Received on Tue Dec 13 2005 - 09:26:23 CST
