Yeah, like :

5,280 feet = 1 mile

3 feet = 1 yard etc... you mean like that ?

When I was in grade school (I'm American btw), the teachers told us that the US would go metric for certain. I am disappointed that it hasn't. We are exposed to a bit more metric system than back then (the '70's in my case), but we are still using the old English system. Even the British (correct me if I am wrong ! please ) are using metrics !

But I think the answer, Toyjons, to your question is that in America's case, it is part stubborness, and habit. Or arrogance and laziness, not sure.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.**
