Hey we are tired of it too. I always have to convert stuff because most of my friends aren't American.
And I have to convert stuff to the murican way so you guys understand me. Plus I hafta convert back because some people ain't as nice as you.

I don't really like going outside.

Thanks to the Russians, space travel continues and the Chinese forgot they left a cup of noodles, oh that's not right, a capsule, yes, a capsule in space that accidentally saved/rescued Sandra Bullock from George Clooney's ghost!

That earlier bit with the first man in space was the Russian Germans fighting the American Germans.

RE: Online conversion
From a technical and engineering perspective full conversion to SI units is a no brainer. Especially in the era of globalization.

Because of widespread software technology this may have been more important in the past than today. The irony though, the Mars Climate Orbiter was lost because of a software error related to the use of US units where SI units were expected.

You can add to that list the scientific perspective (though it may have been implied). Every biology paper I read uses the metric system.

My son now almost exclusively uses the metric system and he uses Celsius too.

Fucking kids, we should be weighing shit with stones like they do it in Britain. Where do these kids think we are, Canada?
