The US is officially Metric, right?

I have yet to see a single road sign that says "1200m until exit" rather than "3/4m until exit). US != metric.

Drive the I-95 in Maine. I saw metric exit signs from the NH border to Portlandia.

Canadians can stay in the US for up to six months without a visa. I'm sure other sunnier countries have similar rules regarding non-working foreigners staying for extended periods of time.
