Hi Guys,

This thread has been going on too long. I for one have lost interest and 
have begun deleting them without reading.
However I now feel compelled to write something about it...

Every country should decide for themselves which system they want to 
use. Who are we to  force some system onto people in another country?

Of course there are economical/trade benefits to using a system that is 
used by the majority of the world. After all the world is getting a 
smaller place these day. But the U.S.A. is a big enough market, so it 
won't hurt them too much economically if they stay with the imperial system.

Anyway, I suggest we close this topic before it runs too much 
off-list-topic, gets out of control and we start calling each other 
names... ;-)
