Is a Metric Ton 2000 lbs converted into kg? Or, is it as simple as 2000 kg? Regardless, is this an American term, or what? Is this because us Americans can only think in terms of English units? Hence, we have a need to express things in these terms, even if creating bastard units?
In short, do Europeans think in these terms? Can they comprehend a “ton”? Isn’t that a concept indigenous to the English system of units?
