Duck Tape Measure

COLOMBIA

When Chris told me that they use the metric system in Colombia I was not surprised. I mean, how can you be when, according to the CIA World Factbook, 95% of the world uses the metric system. Yet, when faced with metric measurements, Americans are always like - what? huh? why? Total confusion. Using metric has some real advantages. For example - fractions - in the world of metrics, you don't use them. Exactitude - it's a lot easier to get down to 150 mm than 5.90 inches. The same goes for scale - what can you visualize better?

I bet when I go to Colombia more than a few people will tell me how much they like the metric system. All over the world people are saying this.
