Most of the songs off the Black Sabbath albums Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Sabotage are split in half, in that these songs essentially switch to a completely different song at the halfway point and it's annoying, especially in cases like The Thrill Of It All where the first half is awesome but the second half not so much.

While we're on the subject of cats...

My cat (who's very fat and broke his leg several years ago so he can't climb very well) is in the storage cabinet again. In order to get there, he must climb a straight-up-and-down ladder, open the cabinet door, and shimmy his way to the very back. He then curls up in the insulation (where he's not allowed to be because we're worried it won't support his weight). In order to get him down, one must first flush him out of the cabinet itself and onto the landing with a stick (golf clubs work well) and a flashlight. Then one must find another person who is willing to stand on the stepladder with a laundry basket above their head, anticipating the weight of a seventeen-pound-cat. Finally, one must climb down the ladder and get a towel (while holding the cabinet door closed with something heavy so he can't go back in), climb back up the ladder, wrap the cat in the towel, and deposit him in the laundry basket, which the other person slowly lowers it down. 

I am not looking forward to completing this task.

I would agree except the metric system doesn't have a foot measurement.

I’m a ‘murican. But I only like the imperial system because I’ve been using it my whole life. I have to admit the metric makes more sense

Yes we do. It's called 30.48cm, or basically a standard ruler.

But that's in centimeters. You don't have another name for it, you don't say "I am six such-and-suches tall" you have to say it in meters or centimeters. The foot measurement is much more convenient.

I will admit that for measuring one's height we tend to use feet but for anything else, it's metric.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I'll give you that, every science teacher I've ever had has forbidden use of the imperial system on pain of death. Once a kid called Miles was in the class and the teacher announced that from now on he had to be called "Meters." I don't think anyone did it though, to his relief.

I like the imperial system. For one, while the metric system can be divided by tens, in actuality it's divided by thousandths since (with the exception of centimeters) we rarely use the prefixes centi, deci, deca, or hecto. Also, a gram is so unbearably small that kilograms is considered the base unit for mass as opposed to a gram like it should be. Not to mention, the imperial system is superior when it comes to baking and temperature, the former being easily halved or doubled and the latter having a more reasonable zero point.

I like how it currently is in the US and Canada where we learn and use both systems, essentially getting the best of both worlds.

SI (International System of Units)

"based on the metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, candela, and mole"

I see no Fahrenheit, or pound, or inch. 

I trust science.

The imperial system is a pet peeve of mine too, it makes no sense and is confusing.

OH MY GOODNESS YES. At times they'll be ambling along the sidewalk and I'll cut through the grass or walk in the gutter to pass them and they'll Look At Me like what are you doing? and I'll look at them like this is all your fault.
