I've read they don't do it because the cost for changing roadsigns etc. would be too high.

I've heard that as well, but countries like Canada and Australia changed their signs and didn't end up broke. In fact I believe they spend much more money doing all sorts of conversions when they work on space projects (those are in metric) or export produce to/work with Europeans. But yeah, I understand that might be a major hassle now.

Guys when are you going to switch to metric and celsius? Very simple, 0- water freezes, 100-water boils. Being technically inclined I like it so much biggrin.png

 

probably never xD, at least not by the government, the big boy's in congress(which are Nut heads, that raise there salary all the time) wont want anything to do with that. plus on the side note it's America it's nuts period, congress has messed the usa up a lot wacko.png

 

It would be tough to get used to meters per second but I guess we could try.

 

agree it would be tough to get use to.

the Congress is more stupid than you can think, most of there action's are questionable spending to much money, we have a $16,787,451,118,147 Debt

Its great for simple maths physics with g (our gravity = -9.81ms-2) nearly equal to -10ms--2 (-10 metres per second squared), you can drop a pebble down a well and count how many seconds it takes to hit the bottom, and approximate how deep it is, multiply the number of seconds squared by 5, giving the distance in metres.
