    Wut time izzit in metric?

    • Depends on your time zone. Here it currently is 22:25 in metric. That’s 10:25 p.m. imperial.

    • Kneel DuhGrassy Tyson June 24, 2017

      Minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years are not metric units.

    • simon asks June 25, 2017

      How many cents is a dollar in imperial?

    • Kneel DuhGrassy Tyson June 26, 2017

      Latitude and longitude are also not metric units.

    Yes. Metric is peaceful and prosperous, imperial is violent and war hungry. Nice comparison.

    • I like your thinking, in particular because so many Americans don’t seem to think this way. You seem to prefer peace over war, for instance.

    • He’s metrized.

    • It’s funny because history tells Europe starts the worldwide wars and USA has to go and fix the mess.
      Even now USA (aka Nato) is what prevents Europe from speaking Russian. But yeah, let us all brainless libtards cry our BS =}

      @Hein
      Yes, you are right. Europeans started Korean war, Vietnam war, Honduras, Nicaragua, Somalia, Egypt, Lebanon, Bay of Pigs, Laos, Dominican Republic, Cambodia, Iran, Afghanistan, Salvador, Lybia, Grenada, Persian Gulf, Panama, Liberia, Kuwait, Iraq…
      All Europeans, rught?!
      Learn your history Trumpie. OK?

    • List of European conflicts. Pick a century. http://bit.ly/1YeDFM8

      @Usonian
      And your point is?

    • Learn your history

    • American In Vienna June 28, 2017

      @Usonian
      Learn to make a solid point, and not a vague posts with irrelevant links. OK? Good.

    • @American in Viena: You need to actually take the time to READ THE POST. It quite clearly says “Europe starts the WORLDWIDE wars”, which history tells were both STARTED BY EUROPEANS. And in both cases the US had to go in and clean it up, including billions of dollars in aid to the defeated countries. Without the US, you folks in Vienna would be speaking German, and your neighbors to the north would now be speaking Russian.
      Further, well, let’s see:
      Vietnam, a continuation of the First Indochina War, involving removing the French.
      Laos, started by the French.
      The last I checked, France is in Europe.

    Metric = Stuck in orbit over 1 minor planet in the vastness of space
    Imperial = Galactic Empire, room for expansion, capitalist “trade”…

    • American In Vienna June 26, 2017

      @Just Saying
      Metric = REALITY
      Imperial = JUST A FICTION.
      Yes? OK.
