Comments: Switch the Speed Limit Signs For Fun

Robin Williams did a great thing about liking the metric system for measuring certain body parts. Something about being Mr. Tripod man if I remember correctly. But the metric system plays hell with romance. Where it once was “I’d walk a thousand miles for one of your smiles” with the metric system it would be what? “I’d walk a thousand kilometers for one of your thermometers”?

Ya know, every now and then I would *wonder* what happened to that Metric Conversion act. . .Thanks, Jen!

I'm pretty bummed about it, tho. For someone who used to bake for a living, I *still* can't remember how many cups are in a gallon.

Actually the more I think about it I realize that we could probably blame the whole thing on women. What woman would want to say that she has a 80cm waist? Or 91 cm hips??
