Today we celebrate the Metre Convention of 1875, which set in place a plan for worldwide uniformity measurement. So to commemorate this day we are giving you the three countries that have yet to formally accept the metric system, as well as eight of the first adopters of the system of note.

In 1795 France was the first country to adopt the metric system. Before they were only known for croissants. Now they pioneer reason-based measuring systems.
