It is easy to understand why people on the other side of this big pond don't like metric system. Why complicate things, like one kilometer = 1,000 meters, one meter = 10 decimeters, one decimeter = 10 centimeters, one centimeter = 10 millimeters when you can have it simple using imperial measurements one mile = 5,280 feet or 1760 yards, one yard = 3 feet, one feet = 12 inches.

Even more complicated would be the mass and volume measures. Thank Goodness no one can force people to learn the complicated way like one kilogram = 1,000 gram and one liter = 10 deciliters, one deciliter = 10 centiliters, one centiliter = 10 milliliters when it's so much easier and more logical with one pound = 16 ounces or one gallon = 8 pints, one pint = 16 fluid ounces.

Not to mention how idiotic it is to say water freezes in 0 degrees and boils in 100. It's more logical to say freezing point is 32 degrees and boiling point 212.

I think the metric system is way better but change is to hard to accept.

Here in the 'micro climate' that is East Lindsey, Lincolnshire, we often get different weather to the rest of the UK, due to our geographical location. Look at the bulge of our county, pushing into the North Sea and with the larger bulk of East Anglia to the south, East Yorkshire curling around the Humber to our north.

Today that works against us: we are cold and damp today, around 13 Celsius, whilst the West is warmer and has been sunny. Quite often there is a semi-circle of different weather around our location and we are actually the driest area of England, having the least amount of rainfall.


I am amused by the Metric vs. Imperial (or US) weights and measures debate. Here in the UK, older people like myself have a hard time with it sometimes, although 8 years in Germany made me conversant with it. I can now calculate (roughly) between kilometers and miles in my head, also centimeters and inches, liters and gallons, but I still prefer the old Imperial system because I was educated into it. I will go out on a limb here and say that it made the minds of oldies like me, more flexible. Think of this:

We had Pounds, Shillings and pence. There were 20 Shillings in a Pound, 12 Pence in a Shilling, therefore 240 Pennies in a Pound. We had coins like these - half-pennies, threepence, sixpence, shillings, two shillings, half-crowns (30 Pennies) Ten -Shilling notes and Pound notes. we used to say, when we first decimalised, "How much is that in Old Money?" when faced with what we called "New Money" (one of the more printable names we gave it, actually!)

We had Gallons - 8 pints in a gallon. Ounces, stones, pounds, hundredweights, inches, feet, yards, chains, furlongs.

Now everything is of course much easier, all divisible by ten. Then Binary comes along and it's back to rounder figures!

I have a headache now ...
