    Would the French scientists who set out to rationalize weights and measures
    have believed that after 200 years their sensible system would dominate
    the whole world *except one country*, the at-the-time most progressive
    nation on Earth, deviser of the closely analogous decimal currency system?

    But that, he realized, was a foolish            John Cowan
    thought; as no one knew better than he
    that the Wall had no other side.
