Imagine thinking that measuring in random body parts and wildly varying subdivisions is the “best” way to measure.

Except this is incorrect, the basis of the internet was developed in the united states as the Arpanet

The best measurements? Hahahahaha can you calculate from miles per hour to yards per seconds mentally? With the metric system you can. Basically you need to power or divide per 10 as many times needed. Easy example: How many meters are in 100km? 1km= 1.000 meters. So 1.000m x 100km = 100.000 meters (just add zeros and its done). And I'm not going to start with you shitty Farenheit shit......Many of you don't even know at what point the water boils or freezes. In Celsius is easy. 0 degrees, frozes water. 100 boils water. See??? Now go on a school killing spree with your AR-15, faggot!!!

I don't blame the the Aussie for not knowing who invited the internet. You can't expect folks who think they know everything to actually know everything, so much as act like it and be jerks about it.

First came Arpanet. Cerf and Kahn the inventor of TCP/IP were both Americans (CN and NY).
