Well, we do, at least the curious ones, do. French wanted to make a logic system that any foreigner could easily learn, 10-10-10. They aren't simply, they were made. Foot was made also, roughly about the foot (human).

Well, nearly*. You can judge military by past milestones and invasions (of the country being invaded, not of the invader).
I'm pretty sure that Sardinian Basement is something that will make any historian, modern analyst or military-man crack up.
All employed historians, modern analysts and militarymen must agree with the man's general concepts.
