That's 5280 Feet! It's 1760 Yards to a Mile. Get your facts strate before you bitch about a system much older than your Frog system.

Tbh, as I've been researching the entire world's other system, I've been finding it makes more sense than the American system. Good job rest of the world creating a system that's smart and makes sense!

@Killsoty: Invade Canada because I mocked the archaic measuring system only one country uses now? Have fun with that lol.

Also it was not a real mathematician. The guy from Indiana who tried to make law that PI is 3.2 or some round number to make it possible to square a circle, wasn't a real mathematician. Prof. C.A. Waldo, who taught Senate some math ahead of the proposal to see how ridiculous that guy was, that was real mathematician. Real mathematicians are only crazy, not dumb.

@mandalorianjedi: True, only one country uses it, but that country is comprised of over 300 million people (ten times more people than you have). Besides, even kids in the US know the difference between a foot and a yard and you couldn't even get that right for a comic making fun of the system. My irony detector is going off.

@EmilyAnnCoons: I'm aware the US is the only one that uses it. I was aiming directly at Canada in this case. And like Killsoty said, "bold words for someone within invasion distance". Though I'm not sure how we are going to measure the distance.

Technically we adopted the metric system back in 1866 and there were efforts on and off since then, particularly in the 1920's mid 1970's, to make it mandatory for all states to convert to it within 10 years it movement fizzled. The price tag involved with conversion is also not helping. But yeah the aerospace industry and the medical industry use it I believe, it's getting private companies and citizens to use too that's a problem.
When I was a kid they taught us about metric units in 2nd grade and then started showing us how to do conversions in 6th grade science and 8th grade physics, the hard part was remembering how many places the decimal went over when say converting from millimeters to decimeters.

I would like to point out not using the metric system didn't stop from us designing the SR71, the X15, or the Saturn V.

Food for thought.

me again Oh and I forgot to mention, the US doesn't use Imperial either, we use USCS, UNITED STATES CUSTOMARY UNITS,they have a common ancestor but there different, an example being I US gallon=.832674.
And Jenna's beloved homeland still uses Imperial, seriously have you never watched English TV or an English youtube channel where they say, "it weighs 8 stone?"

You know I told you this before, if you have a question about the US, just ask, we're happy to answer.

@MiGpilot25: That makes about as much sense as North Americans saying they speak English. They speak an evolved and localized version of English, but still claim that it's English. Much like how the Imperial system has evolved, but still claim it's the Imperial system. Arguing semantics aren't going to somehow make the system any more logical since it's the very system being criticized, no matter what you want to call it. And the British Imperial units are now legally defined in metric terms, so despite the name, it's metric.
