    ^Outdated map (a decade old) :

    Please post maps which are more recent, if the question is a modern one :D

    Well, I also think Dutch do this. Not sure about other continentals. In our language we even have the word 'broodnodig' (essential, lit. 'bread-needed').

    The map denotes "countries that do not use the Metric system" so I'm unsure whether they're using Imperial or a whole other system. But I personally only know Imperial and Metric, so you're probably right: At least definitely close enough.

    Open floor.

    I'm spotting a distinct lack of the UK on LJ's map. :)

    That map makes me sad.

    I'm all about America doing things our way, but the metric system makes so much more sense. We don't even have a good excuse- we're somewhere between "well, this is how we've always done it" and "but changing over is so cooooooomplicated". :thumbsdown:

    The really sad part is that it isn't even attractive in any way.
    For example back when England had all those funny coins, foreigners may have been horribly confused, but at least the whole thing had some considerable aestetic quality. :)

    No, but it does have a lot to do with a specific country.

    If it's Polish population, why not colour in Poland with a unique colour?

    ^Might be that the red means "10 million or more", or something of that variety.
