Once at my school, we did a pass-it-on thing where we just said “Hey, pass it on!”

4. ##### monkeysky3 months ago

I wish the whole metric thing worked out

5. ##### efkasper3 months ago

Well, that ends that round of the telephone game…

7. ##### littlejohnPremium Member3 months ago

School is tough enough without causing an anxiety attack.

8. ##### hagarthehorrible3 months ago

9. ##### Qiset3 months ago

I’m thinking the distance function. Anyone else?

10. ##### GROGPremium Member3 months ago

You can’t make me.

11. ##### Count OlafPremium Member3 months ago

I agree with Patty.

12. ##### jrankin19593 months ago

Think?!? You want me to THINK?!?

13. ##### jagedlo3 months ago

A “telephone game” where the original and ending message remained the same?

14. ##### I'm Sad3 months ago

Wait until the Common Core system comes out with new ways to measure things.

“Think metric…pass it on…”

A metric system PSA from the 1970’s…: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUXutV6Vk6k

17. ##### sheilag3 months ago

It didn’t work – I remember the PSAs on TV (I’ll have to watch Darryl Heine’s link)…

But: when it comes to scientific measurement, or even measurements in engineering or mechanics, metric is far superior and precise. I have some SAE tools when they are needed, but for the most part, metric sized tools are the norm. (Yes, I work on my own cars). ;-)

-40C = -40F. 1 kilometer = .6 mile. 1 liter = @1 quart. 1 yard = 39 inches. f I have to look up or calculate everything else. Somehow when I hear it is 27 out, I feel I need a coat. I don’t know how you get used to that.

19. ##### phoenix3 months ago

Never mind scientific measurement, when I cook I use grams for weight. Sooooo much easier than ounces.

20. ##### fesalazarsoto3 months ago

Think IS… and no, “I” doesn’t stand for"Imperial"…

21. ##### Ellis973 months ago

I’m assuming that Peppermint Patty sits in the last row.

22. ##### geese283 months ago

Patty is “think panic”

23. ##### Decepticomic3 months ago

Ah, america and its refusal to adopt the metric system. I literally have nothing to say about that.

24. ##### this is summerdog3 months ago

Totally my reaction!

25. ##### kchishol19703 months ago

As a Canadian grade school kid in the 1970s, I was glad I was able to learn the Metric system only; it is so much easier than Imperial.

26. ##### txmystic (formerly konjiki)3 months ago

Was that 5, Roy, and Franklin? Three underused characters in one comic!

27. ##### gantech3 months ago

I wonder what made her freak out….“metric” or “think”…?

28. ##### hazelnutking3 months ago

I feel that Roy and Franklin would have made a good duo. I can imagine a story arc in which the two of them share an adventure. What do other commenters think?

29. ##### mindjob3 months ago

Think British Thermal Units (BTUs) j/k

30. ##### Teto85Premium Member3 months ago

To quote Lucy, (or was it Sally?) “16 ozzes in a lb.” Now, an ounce of water weighs one ounce and there are 8 ozzes in a cup, 2 cups in a pint and 2 pints in a quart and 4 quarts in a gallon. A gallon of water weighs 128 oozes or 8 lbs and that is so much easier than 1000 millilitres of water weighs a kilogram./s

The constant conversions back-and-forth between the two systems was what was confusing. The metric system is very simple with everything being based upon multiples of ten.

The best approach would have been to drop the old system completely and start anew.

32. ##### KEA3 months ago

That’s really the secret THINK metric… get used to thinking of things in metric measure and STOP trying to convert from obsolete systems in which there is no system at all. (i feel better now)

33. ##### WCraftPremium Member3 months ago

What a subversive group!

34. ##### Mentor3973 months ago

Big Patrick pass it on.

C’mon, has no one played telephone before?

35. ##### JPuzzleWhiz3 months ago

“Hail fellow, well-metric!”

36. ##### knight1192a3 months ago

Think a different system, pass it on.

Doesn’t matter what the system is, could be meteric, Imperial, mesures usuelles, Scots units of measure, hands, ect.

37. ##### Scoutmaster773 months ago

Metric is easy!

38. ##### The Orange Mailman3 months ago

Just thinking makes Peppermint Patty freak out.

39. ##### poimen3 months ago

Metric to imperial is only kind of works I read that in the UK their imperial measurements I think are like 20 larger than the US ones.

I use mm inch feet mile.
