I was sitting here tonight, and this thought just popped into my head.
For a country that deals in figures like gallons and miles, why is it that our soda cans are in ounces, but our big plastic soda bottles are in litres?
Excuse me, but I don’t think our country ever adopted the metric system. Why are those plastic bottles of soda (it’s not friggin “pop”, it’s soda dammit) measured in litres? Yeah, yeah I know the number of ounces is on there, but no one says “Hey, pick up a 2qt 3.6 oz (or 67.6oz) bottle of soda from the store, get a 2 litter bottle, OK?”

Where the hell are you from? It is FRIGGIN POP!!!! To answer your question, when the pop bottle was introduced in 1976 thats when they began using the metric system. Duh!
