I'm watching a video with some French subtitles on it, and it's pleasing me to note that not only have they translated the speech, but they've converted to units of anything the Americans refer to into metric.

@mike nobody really understands those “units of measure” anyways, probably not even Americans. 😅

@0xf0 @mike I once mentioned something involving distance on the internet. Someone replied "can you repeat that in freedom units?". I remember that every time I try to visualise 7 32nds of an inch etc

@Funkpirata @mike that’s how we measure freedom in ‘murica, alright.

@mike That's really cool that they take that into consideration. Hell, I'm from the US and I don't even understand our units.
