In defense of insanity

For anyone who knows me (or has been stuck in a confined space with me) you know that I’m an ardent fan of the Metric system which was devised by the French who then for some reason decided that garnered them too much respect and started saying 60 and 12 for 72 and 4 20’s for 80 because they hate themselves…

literNaturally, my grandmother is part of the gang that still argues in favor of the old Imperial system or as she calls it, “the American system” which has no rhyme or reason to it. Thankfully this British comedian lined up the whole thing to explain how it all indeed does fit together. One might need to add that this doesn’t work for the American interpretation of the British system as much like the language, we took it, tossed in a barrel of rabid, radioactive monkeys and shook things up for bit. Needless to say, let’s please go Metric fully so we don’t crash satellites in to Mars anymore and asking for “a liter of Cola” isn’t as funny as it is.
