Those of you who are as old as I am will remember the multi-year attempt to move the United States from the English system of measurements to the metric system. The most visible push came in the form of dual speed signs placed alongside highways across the country. As I recall, the top sign showed the speed limit in MPH while a lower sign expressed the same speed in km/h. The hope was that people would subconsciously work the metric numbers into their heads and one day all the MPH signs could come down without anyone caring. Well, that didn’t happen and after about seven years, those dual signs reverted back to the original expression of MPH. Total fail.
