A cup is a cup. 1 cup is 8 ounces of water. 1 quart is 4 cups. 4 quarts is a gallon, etc.

The metric system in an archaic, antiquated system similar to pounding on bongo's or sending out smoke signals. The few coutries left that utilize non-metric systems, namely the United States, are the cowboys of the world. We are forging ahead, creating new and innovative paths, utilizing measurement systems that the rest of the civilized world rejects. Clearly, we are innovators in this field! Either that, or are we pig-headed cowboys fearful to adopt what the rest of the world has embraced with open arms. You choose.

Wait... the metric system is archaic? Imperials is an outdated system, and so annmoying to use. 10mm to a cm, 100cms to a meter, 1000m to a km.

It makes alot more sense, I think you yanks just have ego problems, and would rather say 200 that 90... thats it.
