Lies and Liars: Americans Too Dumb to use the Metric System?

Lies and Liars: Americans Too Dumb to use the Metric System?:  The metric system has been around since about 1799, and nearly all the countries in the world have already converted to it.  In fact, there are only three countries left that do not use the metric system ... Burma, Sierra Leone and the United States.  Burma and Sierra Leone are currently taking steps to make the conversion.

Do we Americans really believe that we are too dumb to learn the metric system?  While everyone from Europeans, to Asians, South Americans and Africans are able to use this system, we Americans seem to wring our hands and complain about how hard it would be to change.

I don't believe that Americans are too dumb to use the Metric System.  I think we simply lack the confidence to try something new and better.  However, as you will see in this article, our failure to make the change has been expensive and dangerous, and it is costing us more every year.  The sooner we make the change, the better off we all will be.
