    Why don’t we use decimeters or deciliters ?

    …and if the wild things want something scary, turn on C-SPAN.

    Is it me, or do the monsters under the bed .. seem to be afraid of Lio?

    re: gweedo

    Mainly convenience. When the British went to metrics in the late 1990s, it was a terrific adjustment for them to think in different sizes. They adjusted.
    .
    What’s funny is that from an engineering standpoint, the English system is less confusing. For example, despite it being a unit of mass, the kilogram is sloppily used for “weight”. In the English system, the two are separate, with slugs for mass and pounds for weight.
    .
    It’s compounded by the fact that most countries have their own standards for mechanical engineering. Tolerances are different from country to country. Numbers of threads per centimeter are different. Etc.
    .
    Our land surveys present a problem. Except for the Napoleonic era stuff in Louisiana, they are in feet. Township system, Meets-and-bounds, etc. While GIS could theoretically be used to fix that, we don’t have 100,000 people inputting surveys from the last 400 years into computers. Until they all get digitized, we’re stuck with the English system in land surveys.
    .
    I like how the Germans said a pound was 1/2 kilogram. We could easily do that. Make the foot exactly one third of a meter. A number of things like that where the measurements are close would be helpful.

    We got bullied into taking on the metric system and you can still ask for a pound of carrots etc, in shops. Anyway, the old (Imperial) system was originally French.

    Problem: can Lio read out loud to them? They sure would enjoy a good semi-scary story!

    Why read it when you could have written it?

    Are you sure those are wild things under the bed? They look like the eyes from Grandma’s gift jar.

    I hadn’t thought of it, but yes, that is a rather long bed for a small child.
    Maybe he’s expected to grow into it.

    “And now,” cried Max “let the Wild Rumpus start!”

    Simply an amazing book. The movie was a terrible disappointment.
