No shit! Most of my friends had no other reason to know what a gram was!
I mean yeah, we learned how to convert from our backward ass U.S. Standard system… but we never used any of it, at least for anything legitimate, so it wasnt retained.
Even though the metric system is far superior, it wasnt enough to outdo the economic juggernaut that was the U.S. economy, and its antiquated system.
Yeah, nothing retained but how to measure drugs, because we used it.
If it wasnt for kilometers being on the speedometer next to miles, I would still have to use a pad and paper to use kilometers, meters, etc.
