Comment Re:How deep? (Score 1) 725

My province is the size of the UK (not just England) and we got around to it alright (the rest of the country as well). I'm not saying that everyone works exclusively in metric, but at least we're generally uniformly on the metric system. Admittedly, we're 1/10th the population of the USA.

Some things may never change however: I know my weight foremost in pounds (though I also know it in kilos), a 'two-by-four' is still 2" by 4", Plywood is measured in inches-by-inches-by-millimeters and recepies generally favour ounces and teaspoons.
