Crap!

Now I'm having to explain why sometimes we use inches and other times centimeters, and what are centimeters anyway Uncle C?

I had forgotten just how complicated we have made things and it is all coming back to me now. Miss B is going to be with us for a week and I have happily volunteered to help her with her homework...oh happy day Weeping

I send the kid back to her teacher....that's what I pay her for... to answer the bazillion questions that will have me bouncing off the walls of a rubber room if I tried to tackle them all.

I hear you. Maybe I should move this conversation to the "Help and Support'" thread? I feel overwhelmed by third grade homework. (Laughing while I write this).

I know that one!! Tell her that back in the 1970's the USA thought it would be a good idea to join the rest of the world so we made it mandatory for kids to learn it. Then all the old people threw a big, giant, hissy fit and we stopped. But kids still have to learn it-even though most people don't use it in their day to day life in the USA. But if you are a doctor some day or other professional-or like to travel--you will need to learn it.

Hummmmm, you want a job tutoring? Cool

I work with scientists often, marine biologists to be more precise, and everything we measure and weigh is done using the metric system. After a while you get used to it but in the back of my head I'm still translating (go ten meters on either side of the transect line = go about thirty feet etc.)

No thanks. I got 2 that quiz me all day long already.

OR the answer could be we have to stay with that system otherwise the NFL would have to change and that would just be a BIG hassle. Tongue
