Why The U.S.A Said No To The Metric System

Now that the metric system is in wide use all over the world, we can see why Americans chose not to adopt it:

  •  A miss is as good as 1.6 kilometers.
  •  Put your best .3 of a meter forward.
  •  Spare the 5.03 meters, and spoil the child.
  •  Twenty-eight grams of prevention is worth 453 grams of cure.
  •  Give a man 2.5 centimeters, and he’ll take 1.6 kilometers.
  •  Peter Piper picked 8.8 liters of pickled peppers.
