Sorry, the UK definitely wins the "chips/French fries" contest. Fish and French fries? Not happening! :) (Live in the US; been to the UK.)
Actually, many Americans have no idea how long a foot or a mile are. These things are not taught in school anymore (at least my grandkids have never been exposed to them) so why would they? The whole American system of weights and measures is absurd. Feet, rods, fathoms, acres, miles, yards, quarts, gallons, pounds, ounces, and how about teaspoons and tablespoons! The metric system neatly makes all of of it so simple that most ten-year-olds have it down.Quick: How many tablespoons of water in a cubic foot? :)
