lol, well i have to learn imperial (feet/inches etc...) because of the americains... in the aircraft industry, its all done in imperial, basically because the americains want it that way... so as im doing an apprenticeship working on aircraft, i have to learn imperial... its confusing.. and taking a long time to learn...

ohh $|-|!t !!

Damn if I need to learn them then America will suffer greatly. No really if that is so then well **** I'm gonna kick the a$s of the next american who gets on my way!

Though I'll prolly never get to the air force anyway, I'll never pass the tests.

Nah, its only in the maintainance i think, im doing my apprenticeship in the maintainance and repair of radar/comms equipment, and quite a bit of the equipment is americain, and therefore imperial... so we need to learn it so we know how to do the repairs properley... though working in thousands of an inch is hard! lol

Well I sure hope that our F-18s use the metric system. Coz if not then when I look to the altitude meter and it gives me something like 10 000 then im like wtf?
