 Wow -- that made my nose bleed!

 You guys (you know who you are) really have to ditch the
 imperial measurements, and soon.

 Dipping the toe into this whole 'wow, everything divides by 10!'
 guilty fascination with things metric is a bit like a staged switch
 to driving on the left side of the road (everyone whose number plate
 ends with an even number starts on Monday, the rest on Tuesday).
