For years Americans have found the metric system difficult to deal with. Here are some conversion factors that may simplify things:
 
1 million microphones = 1 megaphone


2000 mockingbirds = 2 kilomockingbirds


10 cards = 1 decacards


1 millionth of a fish = 1 microfiche


453.6 graham crackers = 1 pound cake


1 trillion pins = 1 terrapin


10 rations = 1 decoration


100 rations = 1 C-ration


10 millipedes = 1 centipede


3 1/3 tridents = 1 decadent


2 monograms = 1 diagram


8 nickels = 2 paradigms


2 wharves = 1 paradox
