I’m really in favor of changing, but look what happens:

Metric System, Anyone?"

Some believe that the world converting to the METRIC SYSTEM would greatly
simplify our

measures. (I’m one of them).

However, look what would happen to our old cliches…

  • A miss is as good as 1.6 kilometers.

  • Put your best 0.3 of a meter forward.

  • Spare the 5.03 meters and spoil the child.

  • Twenty-eight grams of prevention is worth 453 grams of cure.

  • Give a man 2.5 centimeters, and he’ll take 1.6 kilometers.

  • Peter Piper picked 8.8 liters of pickled peppers.
