Liberty Units FTW!

Miles, pounds, and gallons are imperial units from the days before our freedom when we were ruled over by a foreign king.  The king pressed his foot onto our neck, but the Founding Fathers rebelled. 

Antiquated imperial units are submissive and cowardly.  Don't lick the boots of a dead king.  Stand for liberty and use metric.

Washington Crossing the Delaware by Emanuel Leutze


George Washington's boat in Leutze's famous painting is depicted at about 4 or 5 meters long (the actual boats used in 1776 to cross the Delaware River were somewhat bigger).

The copper part of the Statue of Liberty stands 46 meters tall, and the top of the torch is 93 meters above ground level.
