Something about the metric system on TV....
Mama Spatula: "The metric system is stupid. Everyone should just not use it, it's too hard."
Me: "What, like the whole rest of the planet should just quit using it?"
Mama Spatula: "Well, they don't use it in England!"
Me: "You don't think?"
Mama Spatula: "No! They don't use it in England OR in Britain!"
Daddy Spatula: "Well, I guess it WOULD be hard for England and Britain to use different systems..." *smirk smirk smirk*
Mama Spatula: "Why are you laughing? What did I say? I happen to know that neither England nor Britain uses the metric system!"
Me: "Well, I think they both do, and I think, technically, they are actually the same country...so...."
Mama Spatula: "NO! No they're not!"
Daddy Spatula: "Um...."
Mama Spatula: "Well, they didn't used to be the same country. I read historical romances...I know these things. They might be the same now, but it probably just changed."
