Given the time at which they were born and went to school in the USA, the answer would be Imperial, unless they had gone to school in a number of mostly European or South American countries in which case it would be metric.
If they were born today, in just about any country other than the USA, the answer would be metric.
Good to see the U.S. is on-par with Liberia.
The opposition to the Metric system in the U.S. still baffles me!
I wonder if they'll ever accept the international date format as well, if we finally get over to Metric.
For me, it's easier to picture in my mind inches and feet. Also, I'm not a kneeler.
The US being well.. the US should never change over to metric. We don't do things like the rest of the world.
Not doing things like the rest of the world causes its share of problems when dealing internationally.
Bro, it's not the Metric System vs The Imperial System, it's the Metric System vs FREEDOM!
Here's an educational video to help explain....
You can easily, like really easily unit both metric and imperial, here is how:
If you're using imperial units, everything on a guitar is in inches, so it's completely irrelevant what system you use. The system only matters if you're mixing units or interested in the relationship between units.
I think the "modern" standards for the metric system were codified in 1960. I doubt that Leo or Les, during their inventive years could have even found metric fasteners, tools, or measuring standards without quite a bit of effort. When I was a kid you couldn't find metric tools very easily. Screws? "What on Earth are you trying to fix?!?!?!?"
LOL, what a nerd. he seriously needs to take a bath.
The ruler was an April Fool's joke. This should be too. Unfortunately it's not.
Maybe for the same reason we don't drive in the left lane.
