Why do we have to keep beating this same topic over and over and over and over and over and over again?

None of those options apply to me, this is a very 1 sided poll.

1 km = 1000 m
1 m = 1000 cm
10 mm = 1 cm
100 cm = 1000 mm = 10 dm
1 l = 10 dl
1 kg = 1000 g

Well, since it's not going to happen in our lifetime, I'll probably be taking the dirt nap.

Because the guys who keep bringing this up want us to be European. They won't be happy until we fork over 65% of our income in taxes, squeal like little girls to Europop, and fall to the grass like nancyboys every time somebody kicks our shins in a soccer match.

Jesus on a minibike. Move back to Europe already.
