Submission + - Petition for metric in US halfway to requiring response from the White House (whitehouse.gov)

fsterman writes: "Without any prompting from the US Metric Association, a We The People petition to standardize the US on the metric system has received 13,000 signatures in six days. That's half the number needed for an official response from the White House. It looks like ending the US's anti-metric alliance with Liberia and Burma (the only other countries NOT on the US metric system) might rank up there with building a death star."
