I don't agree about the tool manufacturer. I am more to believe as was stated by the congress a few years ago. I would bet that there are fewer than 10 Senators/Representatives trained in science and they feel too old to learn new methods. That is more likely.

Hamguy,

It was meant as a "gearhead" joke. If you ever had to work on a typical American car (1/2 SAE, 1/2 metric), you'd understand what I meant.

OK, I understand. In fact when the inclusion of metric parts started, I went to my local Sears and got all the proper tools. Including sockets screwdrivers (flat & phillips), crescent wrench, awl and safety goggles, All in metric sizes...

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Ps when is the USA going metric? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
Or when will Canada take on a better set of measurements?
I know, I know, everyone wants to go metric! Big deal. Looking down the road you can't tell how far a kilometer is any better than you can tell how far a mile is.
The US has (successfully) used this system of measurement for hundreds of years and if they want to continue to do so for the next 100 years that's OK with me! If anyone doesn't like having 2 different sets of measurements all they have to do is change to OUR way of doing things.

Canada wont go digital until they figure out the metric conversions.

Canada isnt totally metric by the way.

You never hear them describing a criminal on the news as being 1.9 metres tall weighing 95 kilograms.

Thats because American cars are mostly built in Mexico and Canada.

With the Unions running the auto industry, how can the US afford to build a car in this Country!?

OK, I'm ignorant. I understand the the differences in the wrenches, somebody clue me in on the difference between an SAE and metric phillips head screwdriver, or any of the screwdrivers?

It was a joke, son! I thought most would understand when I included goggles too.

A metric crescent wrench is no joke.

I have a phonograph record from their big anniversary episode they did when their sponsor was Bromo Quinine Cold tablets. Been slowly collecting the rest of the series over the years, along with The Shadow, Gunsmoke, Inner Sanctum, Lone Ranger, X-1, Planet X, Green Hornet, Fiber McGee and Molly, The Great Gildersleeve, Roy Rogers, That one radio series that would make hour radio versions of the current popular movies (Screen Writers Playhouse?), Sherlock Holmes w/Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce (sponsored by a couple wine companies and Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer, oddly it was old Fiber McGee and Molly LSMFT Lucky Strike commercials that got me into occasionally buying an old unfilered pack), Tarzan, Superman, Lights OUT!, and many many more I heard these as a Kid in...

The 1980s and early 90s. And old AM radio station here, 940 (Now sadly an all Mexican all the time station) rebroadcast all these old programs. Along with Gi Jive, Let's Dance!, and several other programs that I'd have to go and find my Reel to Reel tapes to tell ya the names of.

At the risk of starting a Union debate I will just say that unions built these two great nations and I think we need more of them.

And that's why we are all allowed our own opinions, no matter how wrong they might be (mine or yours)!
Any chance we could get this topic back to Digital TV service come 2009?
