    No, they'd say miles.

    Gotta laugh at how easy it is to deliver cliches on the English leg of the race...

    No. We got the term FROM them (their version are called "Imperial units"--they're not all identical to what we use in the US anymore, but "miles" certainly is). And they've held onto it.

    England is just as stubborn about the metric system as the US.

    I'm only half paying attention to the show and just realized they're at Eastnor castle. One of my brothers got married there.

    Thanks for the info, Everyone! For some reason I was thinking they are into the metric system.

    But at least I know about Stonehenge's existence!
