    And that, sir, is the problem Americans have. They insist on converting.

    Metric is easy if you don't convert.

    The citizens of Liberia and Burma must be thinking the same thing.

    Re: Canada without the 1 cent coin

    Last year a bank in Winnipeg had rolls of the 2012 coins in stock so I bought a couple to squirrel away. Don't know if they'll be worth any extra as I'm sure a lot of people are hoarding them. It was only a Loony. If they do become valuable I'll have a 100 uncirculated to sell.

    I am saving all of the Canadian pennies that I can find....

    Living so close to Canada, we often find them mixed into our change from stores.

    In time you will, once metric is introduced. Can't remember exactly when we converted from the old imperial system to metric (back in the early 70's, I think - when I was in my late teens) but I do remember that it didn't take me long to start thinking metric in everything (especially temperature).

    You Yanks are just being stubborn!!!!

    Re: Canada without the 1 cent coin

    I say good for Canada on doing away with pennies!
    The US should do the same since it costs more than 1c to make 'em (people here are too stubborn so I don't see it happening for some time yet)
    I've heard it also costs more than 5c to make a nickel

    The US did have a 2c coin back a long time ago..only place I've ever seen one was at a coin show/sale

    It's really handy. In NZ they got rid of 1,2 & 5 cent pieces, then downsized the remaining 10, 20 & 50 cent pieces so they're no bigger than a US quarter at the most. One and two dollar coins are handy for pocket change spending and vending machines.
    As for metric conversions, the rest of the world only converts measures to imperial for the benefit of US citizens or for archaic items. No confusion over many fluid ounces in a quart or pounds in stone, etc.
    Blah blah blah, something enigmatic sounding...

    Just like the gun threads, a bunch of foreigners trying to tell America how to do things. Do I come to your country and tell you how ridiculous it is?

    Yes, America does do things differently. That's why I like it. Telling us we should be more like the other countries is like after you tell your mom you're gay and she keeps trying to set you up with girls.

    LOL. Just like the gun threads, a bunch of foreigners tell each other what works in a whole bunch of different countries and all those countries say "Wow - good idea - we should try that here!" instead of getting all defensive.

    Doing things differently is a good thing, but not when it leaves you behind everyone else and out of touch with the rest of the world - except, perhaps, for Liberia and Burma. That's why Hubble didn't work. That's why there were so many problems building the Space Station. That's why you can't sell your cars outside the United States. The measurements don't convert well enough to fit together.

    LOL! I have made some really good money exporting old Chevy trucks to Australia, to guys that would have given their left nut for them.

    ...and, BTW, American cars have been metric for about 30 years now. You don't find them in other countries very often because other countries can't afford to fill them with gas.
