The metric system is pretty cool, made life alot easier when I studied Physics for four years.
A cubic centimeter is the volume that 1 milliliter of pure water at standard temp and pressure occupies. Cool thing is, one cc of water weighs a gram. The system is based upon some simple standards that are related through physical relationships, really makes conversions nice when dealing with complex problems.
That is not!!!! to say that the SAE/English system is incapable of doing great things. Iwork with alot of european engineers and scientists that can be pretty arrogant when discussing the two systems. My closing statement to them is that we were the first to put a man on the moon.....
