    No, I think you’re right. Where I say ‘it’s Greek to me’, being half French, others use ‘French’ to denote the same thing. It just didn’t click with me.

    It’s the french numbering system. The french came up with that system ,,right.

    I think was the Greek actually. According to My Big Fat Greek Wedding, evverything comes from the Greek. Lol!

    HA…according to just about Every Greek person I know (quite a few), most things were invented or designed by a Greek person.

    @DirtyWhiteBoy was right. It was them frenchies who brought the metric about.

    While it uses Greek terms insofar as suffixes and perfixes, it was indeed the French who brought it about.
