    Living in the US, I don't use the metric system much. But every now and then, you see someone post here how long their cock is in centimeters.

    I just found out that if you go to Google and enter "how many inches is 20 centimeters," it'll give you the answer. Works the other way, too, converting Metric to English.

    And I like the bigger numbers, so I think I'll start telling people I'm 18x15 ... :wink::cool:

    Aaargh...it does my head in, converting centimetres to inches. I know, I know...I'm a dinosaur. I'll get my brain around it someday. I'm a fucking degreed engineer, for godsake! LOL!

    I'm much better with pictures anyway...they never lie. Wait, I forgot about Photoshop...

    Oh shit. There just is no winning, is there?

    If you like big numbers maybe you should go for Millimetres instead :biggrin1:

    same with dollar to euro or anything else.

    way easier then go and find a converter for every single thing. I use it all the time

    Google will also do the conversion if you type in "20cm to in" meaning 20centimeters to inches, or the reverse "8in to cm" etc :smile:

    Found out it would do it by accident :cool:

    It's time you in the US gets used to internationally accepted units. After all, it's only US (and sometimes UK) that are still using inch. The rest of the world is using meters, millimeters, and centimeters.

    Using the suggested internet converters might be helpful to get used to international units! :smile:

    Yep even us northern folks in Kanadah use metric now. The doctor asked for my weight and height in kilos and centimetres. Luckily I know both - I didn't want to look like an ignorant idiot who doesn't even know those two things when I was raised on metric.

    But oddly - our supermarkets still use lbs instead of kilograms.

    I think it's ok to use different systems for different things. For measuring people's height I find it easier to use feet and inches. If someone was 6'5, it's easier to "chop" him up into 6 units (feet) then add a few inches on top. For penises, it's easier to imagine 8 units (inches) than say 16 smaller units of cm. But for many other things like construction and engineering where measuring things in smaller increments is beneficial, even necessary, i'd say the metric system works. What I don't understand is Farhenheit. It's so much easier to think "0" is freezing point and "100" is boiling. Celcius is so much easier, the rest of the world uses it, and i don't think it'll take too much to get used to it in the states.

    anyone else notice that rulers are normally marked in 1/8 inch or 1/16 inch increments... but most guys give their measurement in 1/10th of an inch. I wonder how they manage to do that?
