So why are we even wasting time writing/reading about this? Why am 
I even writing this? I'm dunno... 

BUT, it is a PITA having to know both systems, and I guess we are 
imposing that on ourselves (as well as much of the rest of the world). 

No, that's not right - the TRUE PITA is having to BUY BOTH sets 
of tools, spare bolts, nuts, etc! How about my 79 Pontiac Trans Am? It 
has some bolts/nuts that are metric, others that are SAE!! Now, that's
truly screwed up - even worse than not changing to metric is changing 
halfway and then getting stuck there!!!

But I've already got both sets of tools, taps/dies, nuts, bolts, 
etc. - I'm ready for whichever way anybody goes! Just please don't 
let anyone introduce a third standard, OK?

Anyway, I think this is something none of us can have much effect on.
So enough already - Can we let this one drop for another 6 months?
