Children throughout the world can do it.  Even you could!  You'll
never do it until you determine to do so; the only problem is that
you haven't yet tried.

You're absolutely right, I haven't tried, because I've had no reason to. My system has worked for me (and my fellow Americans) for my entire 57 years on Earth. Until it stops working, I'm quite happy to keep using it.

I guess my point is that having something "better" isn't necessarily enough motivation to produce change. I fully agree that the metric system is better than the English. But, my English system works. I fully and accurately measure things every day with it, and I effectively communicate those measurements to others. Until it stops working, I have little motivation to change.
