    I think that's actually from the original Planet of the Apes, actually.

    No idea about the autistic boy one, though.

    Hardly the rest of the world. Imperial measurements are used across the world, mostly in English-speaking Commonwealth countries, but also parts of Africa and the Arab world. Confusingly, some imperial systems differ to others. Although many countries switched to metric in the 1960s/70s (?), many of them still use imperial measurements in certain fields, and have refused to adopt international standards. There is good reason why Imperial units were first defined and why they spread across the world, just as there is good reason why Metrification happened. Also, it's not metric, it's SI. How out of date are you

    About the dates, the most logicial way to express a date would be largest to smallest, ie 2012/02/10, but people who embrace metric don't seem to think that the same logic should apply to dates.

    OT

    "The planet was earth" is most likely from "Planet of the apes". It is not from "Red planet", cause in that movie they are in fact on mars.

    It's most likely that they are just used to it, rather than "the logic shouldn't apply". I know I don't really care if the year or day comes first, as long as it's easily visible what the writer chose.

    I hate the english system and I hate that we refuse to move to the metric system.
