This is just silly. We all know the entire world knows and uses American units like miles and feet. No one really uses kilometers.
'American' units?? did we Brits ceed these to America after the Boston Tea Party???
Great original idea but is it really a coincidence?
No, y'all wisely abandoned them when a better system came along. The fact that we Americans stubbornly clung to them (and continue to cling to them) may make it look like you ceded them to us, but in reality it's no one's fault but our own.
That's because Americans are the silly ones and fail to convert to kilometers. For the same reason the whole world speaks English - Americans are too silly to learn foreign languages.
