Do you think the Navy will just park a Trident sub in Cheney's pool and plug the house into that?

In case anyone is listening, I thought of a way George Bush could guarantee re-election in 2004: switch everyone over to the metric system!

Think about it, all of a sudden the price of gas at the pumps would be $0.46 instead of $1.75. You'd get to drive 120 on the interstate. Everyone would be taller and weigh less: instead 5'9" and 185lbs, I'd be 175cm tall and weigh only 69kg!

Even better, we could all switch to Canadian currency and make 1.5X as much!

Of course this comes from someone who used to express results from physics problems in terms of lightyear-slugs. The great thing about a lightyear-slug is that it takes so much energy to produce one unit of work it hardly seems worth the effort at all.
