Ok…some of the members are American

So let´s try to bring them into at least the 20th century on this topic.

It´s really quite easy…and this explanation may help to get a nice overview

Some observations:

  • Summer Glau is missing from some of the charts!

  • I think it should be “Yo mama” instead of “Your mom” :doh:

  • Who woulda thunk a caption weighs 100 grams?!?

Yo Deano-

So [B]14cm[/B] - is that small, medium or large-eh!!

Well…put it this way: the NZ condom factory ships the 12 inchers to Australia in boxes labelled medium.

:cool:

Yo Deano-

Thread is about metric system and you’re using the term “inchers”

No wonder it’s so confusing for the Americans and hard to learn-eh!! :rolleyes:

That was in the olden days buddy…many years ago when I lived there…
(was keeping it simple…ease you into this gradually y´know)

:wink:

It’s only stupid Amerriccuns that don’t understand metric. Wheeze smart’uns know how. I learned metric back in 1972 when my Mom purchased a 230 4 door Mercedes-Benz. Being 14 and having to fix the car daily, I had to learn metric, (and also found out that Mercedes reliability was a myth). Working in the Aerospace industry we go back and forth constantly. So us smartun’s know both and interchange them routinely. (p.s. There’s more hardware (nut and bolt sizes) in American standard than in Metric). I love them both, as I love metric women.

Yo Deano-

Just figured out why the ozzies would [I]want [/I]to substitute inches for [B]cm’s[/B] - fits right in with their egos-eh!!
