The new Metric / Inches unified ruler

(0.45 NACL) #1

From the website;

"There is this schism between people who prefer metric and people who prefer inches.

Metric people like nice convenient units, decimal, and being able to make easy calculations. Inches people like complicated fractional units.

So I have come up with a new ruler to unite the two. It has nice millimeter and centimeter sized increments, but uses inches as the scale.

I present to you, my new universal fractional ruler!"

I think whomever created fractions did so because he was working with 1/2 a brain!

Look how complex this was…
