(stolen) Top 10 reasons we should convert to the Metric System (with apologies to David Letterman)

10. People will finally understand my joke about driving attoparsecs per nanocenturies.
9. Gas will seem cheaper at 50 cents a liter.
8. Being 22 kilos overweight does not sound as bad as 50 lbs.
7. Defense will be easier if the offense has to drive 10 meters for a first down.
6. Arizona summers will not seem as bad when its only 40 degrees outside.
5. Its not "metric", its "Digital"!
4. Imagine all the exciting math you will do converting your favorite recipes to milliliters.
3. Less fractions to deal with like, "Do I need a five eighths socket or a nine sixteenths to loosen this nut?"
2. The boy band 98º will not be as popular calling themselves 36.7º.
1. Half a liter is more than a pint, which means, MORE BEER FOR EVERYBODY!

And of course there is weed :))

As with so many others. we need A filter to capture alike highdeas and group, rate, delete and clean out the system. Kinda like a laxative. Clean the shit out of highdeas. I'm not necessarily referring to this one bt the plethora of like highdeas.

more like since there was a metric system to be learned, and drugs were first bothered to be weighed out. i think thats all about making money though, thats where the greedy stoners or people who sell but dont smoke interfered. Ass Holes.

who else can you count on then the stoner in your class to tell the teacher an oz has 28 grams

in math a while ago, we were doing conversions, and my teacher asked how many grams were in an ounce, and everybody kinda looks around in there books while i just shout "twenty eight point three!" later in the class, the teacher got really pissed at a kid for having his feet on the table, and i told her she should chill out. she then told me she would like three grams of MY chill. :D
