    So... do the french call "chips" (from this day forward, all words that are meant to have the European (read: wrong) definitions will be in quotes) fries?

    > supposedly it is more widly used even in the U.S. than the english system

    I'd love to see some proof of that... (unless you meant in the scientific community)

    > fritÚs

    I suppose it'd be fruitless to see what that directly translates to

    OK, that makes more sense, although I think the only reason it's so widely used is to keep to the SI standard.

    actually the reason i think it's more used is the fact that it is just easier to use and understand! it makes sense!!! EVERYTHINGS BASED ON TEN!!! like our numbering system!! it's so simple yet so genius!!... why can't anyone else see it that way...

    Eh, everything else in science takes some time to wrap your head around, why not the numbering system?

    "Yes, Govtcheez, you are totally correct" would do nicely. For dramatic effect, stare straight ahead and speak in a monotone.

    ah haa! but do you not believe the metric system is more efficient?
