Is This an Argument in the Other Direction?
According to Gizmodo:
The fact that the US—perhaps the world's leading technological and scientific power—chooses to make life more difficult for itself by using an archaic set of measures is mind-boggling.Maybe that means the relative absence of the metric system isn't much a drag after all.
Besides, in the Computer Age, binary measurements are obviously more advanced than decimal. There are 2 tablespoons in an ounce, 4 ounces in a gill, 2 gills in a cup, 2 cups in a pint, 2 pints in a quart, 4 quarts in a gallon, 2 gallons in a peck, 4 pecks in a bushel … In other news, I think the metric people got something right (for once) when they devised paper sizes.
