Look at what we found today - stamps issued to assist metrication in Australia in 1973. Do any of our Australian friends remember these?

Did you know?

A parsec is a unit of length that is about the same as 20 trillion miles, 31 trillion kilometers or 206,264 times the distance from the earth to the sun. 

It's also about the same as 3.26 light years.

I had no idea what parsec is, now i have!, the most Astonishing fact to me are ignorance and myopia. The ignorance i own, on account that i am 51 yet i still struggle w/ Metric. The  Myopia belongs to a failed [ Educational Evolution]. Metric was just starting to be recognized as what the World uses;  when i had been in grade school: and that the U.S.A. is behind the times' in far too many ways, including mathematics. Myopia and Ego Masturbation seem to be our governments greatest gifts, passing it to each following generation is perhaps the U.S. Governments most Pernicious Gift!. Shame on me, Shame on our Government.
