Nooooo. A foot is actually 12 inches!!! Can you not see how easy this is?!!!
First off, we don't say three 'foot'. It is three 'feet'. You use 'foot' when referring to only ONE FOOT. All the rest are plural, as in 3 FEET.
Here's some history for you. Three feet became a yard when a guy asked for one ARM'S LENGTH of material to make some clothing.
3 feet = 1 ARM length = 1 yard
Oh, goodness! Everyone knows a pinball cabinet is 4 feet 5 11/32 inches! Or, simply: Nearly 54".
Yards are not quoted in furniture, cabinets, and the like. Yards are only used in describing cloth, concrete, and football (American style).
That's why a team gets another "First Down" in the game . . . they ran with the ball for 10 YARDS. TV announcers cannot very easily tell us where the ball ended up by describing it in metrics, as in: "And the team gets a first down because they ran the ball 9.144 meters!!!!" That has NO excitement in it. By the time he would spit all that meter stuff out, the next play would already be over!!! People would go crazy trying to visualize 9.144 meters. How do you mentally see that?! Everyone knows that 10 yards equals three arms and one foot (measured only with the shoe on!)! Sheeeeeshe!
You Europeans are really unscientific!!! I can't understand why you don't use the 'original authentic measurement system' invented by your neighbors just right across the Channel!!!???!!! But, NOOOO! You had to go and mess it up with some kind of cm's and km's and gram shit that nobody can 'see' in their heads!!! I know exactly where 10 yards is on the football field. But there's no way in hell I could tell you where 9.144 meters is!!!
And yes, we can easily do measurements less than a foot. You want 10 inches?
Here's the formula for 10 inches: LMP + 2 = 10.
That is: "(The) Length of My Penis + 2 inches = 10 inches". See how easy it is?!
