Love it the conversions take a bit of time but multiple of 10s is so simple.

Yea, I think when I worked as a temp for the USPS back in the early 90's their timeclock punched your timecard in 10ths, No wonder they suck.

I still use both in my call making but there is nothing wrong with the metric system. No need for cutting wood to 1/64 or 3/64, just add a millimeter.

I'll stand by for the backlash.

I once had an engineers tape measure. It was standard, but the feet were dividing into tenths....10 "inches" to a foot.

When we get a dumb one, we send a kid to the tool room for a level and tell him to ask the clerk for one with a double bubble in it. grin

I still don't understand the convergence. I save what gray matter I have to remember good tree stand locations and where I put my scouting cameras. Can't spare any on math.

I remember being in the 3 rd grade and our school was teaching us the metric system. I remember my parents and others talking about as well as hearing President Jimmy Carter talking about it. Everyone was against it and it just went away - except for the nuts / bolts /; tools.

There seems to me that it would have been very helpful if it had been used - in teh construction industry. I see a lot of people that have been in teh building trade for years and they cannot add and subtract fractions. Something tells me if we had gone to the metric system many of the homes you guys live in would have been build square. Just sayin.

I remember how to convert fractions to decimals, that's about it. I sucked at math.
