    decimalisation came in when i was still at primary school. so, i honestly don't remember the old imperial currency well. i do recall that there were ha'pennies (1/2d) and farthings (1/4d), and that you'd get sixpence (6d) for a tooth off the tooth fairly. but, whilst nostalgic, as a system it didn't make much sense, as there was no fixed number base. quaint but impractical, i think.

    in terms of metrification, no one uses the old monetary units anymore. it's all /p instead of /s/d. however, whilst everything has to be sold in /Kg, in practice what you find is that people also give the old /Lb pricing as well. so, yes, it's still possible to walk into a shop and buy, say 5 Lb of potatoes. it's a bit like Km and meters. people still think in terms of miles and feet and inches. but largely people of my generation are comfortable with both imperial and metric. the only thing that i don't have a good feel for is temperature. i relate better to centigrade than fahrenheit.

    Ha ha, I meant it in jest of course. Maybe I'm just pissed off because some guy I knew acted like that, lol.

    These sorts of people seem to bring out the sarcastic douche in me, as well. I can't help thinking that there is too much non-thinking going on these days.

    I wasn't commenting on Harvard vs. Yale. I was saying that OP thinks she only graduated Yale, when she's a full professor there. Big difference, attending vs. teaching.
