What about the millions that don't want a change - probably a lot more? And if we put it to a referendum and the metric conversion loses, will you stop posting about this?

He's already been here under two different names and was banned once under Mattias. I would think enough reports and the mods would have to look into it. I already sent one.

Learn geography first and the numbers, then talk.
Post where you come up with 305 INCLUDING the illegals. It sure isn't the US Census Bureau numbers. They don't count OR estimate numbers with illegals in there reports.

those cartoons look they're from the 1970's, don't think that'd be too valid nowadays.

So yeah, in conclusion, USA will never use the metric system... Europe sucks, USA is a super power, I'm right, you're all wrong, if you disagree leave this country and quit b****in. Simple as that.

The End.
