hell's kitten

(no subject)

So I got to Canada and I see the temperature in celsius, speed limits in kilometers, and gas prices by the liter. As I'd expected. They use the metric system.

I was talking to my (Canadian) friend and start to describe someone's height in feet but then stop, thinking she wouldnt know feet as well as meters. She laughed at me and said they don't use meters... they use feet too. And pounds, not kilograms.

Stupid Canadians. At least Americans are consistent. ;)
