    Metric would really change the flow of the Who's "I Can See for Miles" as the lyrics "I can see for kilometers and kilometers and kilometers and kilometers and kilometers - Oh yeah" just doesn't roll off the tongue quite as easily. ;)

    Here in Ontario, we're on Metric, but it still hasn't completely caught on. Gas is in Liters, distance is metric, but if you start talking temperature on a warm day in metric, nobody knows what the fuck you mean.

    I like temperatures for weather in Fahrenheit because I'm used to it and have convinced myself that it's more accurate since it's on a little bit of a finer scale but realistically metric makes the most sense.

    I measure my weed and coffee in grams, if that counts?
