^^^ Cat vs dog

That was funny before, and I guess it is still funny in a way. But today, I would grab a shovel and send the cat to his next life. When I was young, I liked cats. Now I do not. If they were to to go extinct today, I would reply, "Thanks for catching the mice, but you did not have to be NAZIS in torturing them before killing them." Vermin need to be killed, but I do not support... What the hell was I thinking?

I was talking to my older brother a few years back about shooting a target at 300 meters and he was like, "I don't know meters."
His loss. Metric is so simple. You have ten fingers. You don't have 5 7/16 fingers. Metric is multiples of 10.

When I carve a violin plate thickness it's 4.5mm, not 11/64 in.

4mm is 5/32 in

So simple.

A great many years ago, there was an Army officer that had his picture taken with the goose he shot. He was so proud and happy that he had the picture published in the local paper. The goose had a suspiciously long neck. He had shot a whistling swan. Loss of hunting privileges for 3 years, loss of expensive shotgun, $1500 fine. Ever since then, our family refers to them as Long Necked Geese.

I was the younger brother. He wasn't taught metric in school. I was about a dozen years behind him, by then they started teaching it. Plus, I was in the military and he wasn't, so I got to use metric some.

In school back then we were told that America was going to the metric system and we'd have to learn it. Yes it is simple by comparison. America still hasn't really made the switch.

Brother is in his 80's don't think he cares much about metric system.

I'm not sure how close some metric measurements are to fractional measurements but it seems that I need both sets of wrenches and sockets when working on things.

pretty much........................5/16=8mm; 3/8 = 10mm, 7/16 = 11mm, 1/2 =13mm, 14 mm= 9/16

those are what I deal with the most

Funny. But I'm used to the U. S. English system. Though, I can work with metric just as easily.
Boiled Monkey Shit.

Quick: How many teaspoons in a hogshead?

Now in Metric: How many milliliters in a liter? Answer in 1/10th second: 1000. How'd you do on the teaspoon thing?

CAN you even do the teaspoons to gallon? Hogshead is sorta like a deciliter... Oh. Wait... I know what a deciliter is.

We had a guy shoot a short-necked turkey in our hunt club. (vulture)

You can boil the shit.

I did not lie. I can interchange what I need when I need it.

I wasn't either. I didn't start 'thinking' metric until I started carving plates. It was an 'Ah HA!' moment for me. I struggled with math from the beginning.

It's like knowing two different languages when one will do.

US manufacturer's didn't want to afford the cost to change. So now they afford the cost to buy twice the tools. US car manufacturers have Mitsubishi engines with metric bolts and US lug nuts.
