Making the case for taking traditional units off death row
On a recent trip to the US I noticed that I quite liked using miles while driving and started to ponder our use of imperial units and our conversion to metric. This is my origin story!
In this post, I’ll make the case for keeping imperial units. Not for everything, but for everyday uses such as in the greengrocer, the butcher, the pub, on the road and so on.
This post looks at the pros and cons of the metric system. While it does have its obvious benefits, it also has its downsides; all of which is discussed here.
In this post, I look at redefining traditional units like pints, stones and pounds, and align them to exact metric values with the aim of modernising them and to help make it easier to hang onto them!
