Metric system, I'll see you in hell!

I really wish someone would tell Canada that the United States doesn't use "kilometers" or "degrees centigrade" or any of that other commie bullshit, and that we never will.

My teachers started telling us in 1st grade that "You better learn this, because in five years, everybody's going to be using the metric system, and you'll get left behind."

Well, that didn't happen.

Now, it may be that only the areas in red on the world map to the left are still using the English system of measurement. Maybe the vast majority of the planet is using the Metric system. Well, whoopty freakin' doo! We are America, and we utterly refuse your base-10 shenanigans.
