+ - Happy World Metrology Day->

spacefem writes: "Happy World Metrology Day, everyone. On May 20th 1875 seventeen nations, including the United States, signed The Metre Convention, setting the framework for global collaboration in the science of measurement and the International System of Units, or the metric system.

If you like the idea of the world working together on logical standards for measurement instead of just using whatever whimsical units our individual traditions dictate, May 20th is a wonderful holiday for you. If you live in Burma, Liberia, or the United States, it might be a good day to just sit back and reflect a bit. Just saying."
