What problems does this cause for the United States? What benefits might it bring the United States? How might you resolve the gap between the United States' measurement system and that of the rest of the world?
What on earth are you talking about?
What is "this" and "it?"
Is this about the disadvantages of the USA not converting to the metric system?
Could this be one of the reasons more manufacturing jobs are being lost to foreign countries? It doesn't help.
It is a nuisance having to stock both metric and English hardware for home and vehicle repairs.
One of the NAS Mars probes crashed into that planet zseveral years ago because an engineer failed to convert a critical measurement from feet to meters.
I haven't answered your question, but maybe I have at least figured out what it is. Let's hear your ideas.
