At some time in the 70's when I was at conference to mark the centenary of
the Greenwich meridian I learned that the French agreed to give up the Paris
meridian if the British agreed to go metric-and that was over a century ago
Maybe the U.S. could be bribed to go metric if they were allowed to have
Washington as the standard meridian.
