yes, what Sridhar said :P
You forgot one thing world = USA, so we should actually banish metric system :-)
I think the U.K. sells groceries by the k.g. and speed limits are in Km/h, so it’s metric.
if the united states were to switch to the metric system, think of what would happen to the economy. We would have to change all the signs and road alerts to metric. It would take more time and money than we could afford
