This is for real; I am not making this up. I was driving back to Pittsburgh from Chicago a few weekends ago, and had the CB so that I would be appraised of "traffic conditions." Anyway there were these two truckers talking on the channel. Trucker #1: Naw, I think we really should change over the metric system. Trucker #2: Metric? Why should we change over to metric? What wrong with (a slight pause here as Trucker #2 tries to think up of appropriate system of measurements...) American Standard. Trucker #1: Metric is real simple. See there's none of these 16th and 32nd measures. Everything is just one through ten. It's real easy Trucker 2: Only one through ten hunh? Well, I got a few metric tools in my toolbox. And this here wrench is sized six POINT five... how do you explain that?
