I hardly think that the metric system is "bleeding edge". It has been
around for how many centuries?
It would seem to me that all high-tech and semi-tech industries use
metric. For example doctors use "CC", computer technicians use "MHZ", etc.
But the common person prefers to have there speed signs saying MPH
instead of KPH, and even $4.00 per gallon, instead of $1.05 per liter.
I just thought of a great marketing ploy. We could start advertising
saying, gas prices are now $1.05 per liter instead of $4.00 per gallon!
People would be lining the streets to get gas. :-)
