      Hee! I don’t know either. I’m not sure how many other countries in the world don’t use the metric system either. Though there were some instances in which I think this individualism probably worked to your favour, with simplifications in spelling and that sort of thing. (Though I’m still very fond of the British spellings, and retain them in my personal writing.)
