The problem was far beyond the mathematical conversion issue, which is rather simple. We used both English and Metric dimensions on our engineering and shop drawings, but the investment in machines, jigs and fixtures, calibration/measuring instruments, and tools was another very large economical issue. Retooling for metric conversion was costly.
I'll take truth over subjective feelings any day also...Paul praised the Bereans for checking what he said against the written word, I'm in good company.
Feelings: Judg. 21:25 "In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes." (a negative according to the bible)
And The bible's statement on how reliable feelings are:
Jer. 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately sick; who can understand it?
And of course Paul praising certain folks for checking what is said against the word:
Acts 17:10 "The brothers immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived they went into the Jewish synagogue. Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so."

Truth isn't a free for all. That is to say truth isn't defined by whatever you want it to be and feel strongly about.
Truth is objective, not subjective.
Truth by its very nature is divisive. There cannot be alternate competing contradictory truths.
In today's messed up version of Christianity whatever a person wants and feels strongly about is "right" and "true" but the fact is...God sets the standard of what's true and correct and whether you like it or not, women have their role just as men do.

Update from up here in Canada. Overnite in our city the price of regular gas went from $1.22 a litre to $1.39 a increase of $0.17. Don't know why, maybe our government is increasing our so-called "carbon tax" or the oil companies are increasing their profits (again). For our American friends south of the 49th that would be the equivalent of a gallon of YOUR gas going up $0.51 overnight. I don't think even old California has seen something like that (but I might be wrong). I see that gas on the American side of the border today is still holding at $2.79 USD which means that even taking into consideration the 33% difference in our dollars the cost in the USA for us equals about $1.00 a litre. That is $0.39 per litre difference. Our Rav usually takes 40 litres so by crossing the border we would save roughly $19. So if you are driving a Dodge Ram or the like and a fillup was triple that total your savings would approximately $60. Savings are reduced by the $10 bridge toll which means a total more in our pockets is $9 while driving our 4 cyl. Doesn't sound like much to many but those like me on a fixed income every penny counts. (Mind you a couple of gas cans in the trunk helps increase or savings a lot)
