the US DoD as well as the DoCommerce have been metric for over a decade -- the US Army, and Army Core of Engineers have been fully metric since the early 90s.

I will go metric when the metric system adopts a decimal based calendar and clock. 543 liters per week is how many liters per second?

I wish I grew up using the metric system. It makes much more sense and is based on reality instead of what some king decided would be a yard.

Why would a base 10 calendar and clock make a difference? I guess it would be nice that everyone would have to get used to something new, not just us.

You've mentioned this before, and as a young Canadian who grew up using the Imperial system (even though they taught us the metric system in school), I think you over estimate who uses metric in the world. Lies, damned lies and statistics I guess!

Most Canadians, Brits and Australians I know use the imperial system. Pounds instead of kilos, feet and inches instead of cm, hands to measure a horse the list goes on and on.

Besides this annoying little factoid that keeps reoccurring: I always enjoy your blog! :D
