Just curious, and not meaning to ruffle any feathers, but if democracy is a lie, why are you living in the USA? Why not move to Iraq? wink.gif

Ok, you 2. I haven't learned Spanish yet. I do plan on learning it after I'm finished with my BS in September. That way I can talk to my wife's Mexican relatives -- and you guys!

You must then be the best 'BSer' in your college! You do a wonderful job here lol.gif

Seriously, congrats on your work! And it is truly a lot of work! What is the degree in besides entertainment and BS?

More Guiness, barkeep!!! cheers.gif

Computer "geeks" are so awsome! Really! Wish I could understand all that. I'm way too right brained to figure anything mathmatical out -- and too old biggrin.gif -- I'm impressed!

4 days off? I have to work. Keep the Guiness flowing anyway and I'll play catch-up as I can! WooHoo! It's a party! cheers.gif

I am not shure if they should go metric....
It would make some things easyer.
By the way, a lot of people in Germany even use old
units of measure like pond and dozen....
(I am one of them! laugh.gif ) But nobody use miles or inches
for distances.....

Oh, I forgot.... in Ireland they use both, miles and kilometers. On signposts they have both, or they have one with "miles" and one with "kilometers". biggrin.gif

How about a system which could tell you how many beers to get to a particular place?

such as

St.Louis to Kansas City 300 miles or 12 beers
would this worK?

Mireland, and they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland.

If we had changed forty years ago (when I was first aware of folks trying to change the system), everyone would be used to it by now and Ceciliastar would never have known anything else. But the good ole US of A will probably never change and this from a country that had the first metric monetary system.
