how drugs have taught an entire generation of american kids the metric system?
One generation? More than that.
(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 :))
this is a repost of a repost that happend to be a repost...
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.
LMAO so true
has any highidea been upvoted into 1000? :P
i think about that every day. my math teacher pretty much knos im a pot head but dosnt care cuz shes from the hippie generation. and she alwayz wants 2 kno how im the best in my class at fractions and metric measurements lol
most comments are so old, sad. i think about this every day lol awesome
damn, i wanna upvote this one but i dont wanna ruin it, its at 1111 votes! (:
epic highdea. cheers but with a joint.
if you would have said weed instead of drugs this would be awesome
*This would be P.J. O'Rourke's original highdea
Fuckin. ayyyyyy! i know. i never knew anything about grams or ounces or anything.. then i started smoking... i know this shit better than scholar students at school! XD
Dude cmon give credit where credit is due this is from P.J. O'Rourke
its because of weed that i know there 16 ounces in a pound.
Beneficent news.This is a uppercase collection. I like this matter.This computer has lots of benefit. I found galore interesting things from this situation. It helps me numerous away..So i requirement many info for distribution this view with several of my human. Thanks
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
haha so very true! i failed outta math junior year and this year but i know how many g's in an oz, oz's in a lb, g's in a key off the dome lol much more useful info then algebra and geometry
Ha this is true, it also taught a generation of British kids the imperial system....until the economy fucked up and we had metric mary jane once again.
literally thought the exact same thing earlier today on my way to my 9am class. dying laughing brother
