Metric for the win…

I’m not a fan of the imperial system when it comes to engineering calculations, I make no secret of this. Nothing is easier than multiples of ten in my mind, it just makes sense. As opposed to a 12 here and a 3 there, and the whole mass and weight thing which I didn’t even realise existed…..

So I found the irony of the claim in this video that the imperial systems official definition of a ‘foot’ length measurement is actually defined as a metric measurement quite hilarious … Come on America, Liberia and Myanmar, get with the programme. You’re secretly using metric anyway it seems!
