So we're going to ignore the Normandy landings of 6th of June 1944?

And that from then on until the end of the Normandy campaign The United Kingdom contributed the following forces:

Guards Armoured Division, 7th Armoured Division, 11th Armoured Division, 4th Armoured Division, 8th Armoured Division, 27th Armoured Division, 6th Airborne Division, 3rd Infantry Division, 15th (Scottish) Infantry Division, 43rd (Wessex) Infantry Division, 49th (West Riding) Infantry Division, 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division, 51st (Highland) Infantry Division, 53rd (welsh) Infantry Division, 59th (Staffordshire) , Infantry Division, 79th Armoured Division, 5th battalion, 8th (Irish) Battalion, The Buckinghamshire Battalion, 1st Special Service Brigade, 4th Special Service Brigade

It means your father's first name becomes part of you last name. For instance, Thor's name is Thor Odinson, with Odin being his father.

Yeah except that having Johnson for a surname means you have a (paternal) ancestor named John, not that your father's name is John. If I'm not mistaken in Iceland your whole family would have different surnames except for multiple brothers or multiple sisters.

It wasn't like that in the beginning.
People that have last names like "Johnson" had indeed ancestors who had a parents named John. But it's still a patronymic name, it's just that the descendants of John got tired if the tradition and adopted another tradition when you get your fathers last name. That's why there's just a few people with names like "johnsdaughter" but those who have have patronymic names and who's father was named john.
And just because it's more common now that your ancestor name was john then your fathers name begin john doesn't mean people still get names like Johnson because their fathers name was john. Sorry if the last sentence sound weird

we are definitely taught the metric system in most standard educations. whether we remember or use it or not depends entirely on what field you're in.

Scientists, who take measurements of many different orders of magnitude use the metric system all the time. thats where its majesty really shows.

others, who dont really need to convert from one unit of length to a much bigger one, generally use the imperial system. but even then, they can get from a meter to a kilometer.

Britain would also be on that map then. They use imperial for a large majority of things too. (they use miles in distance, buy beer by the pints at pubs, weigh people in both kg as well as stones and pounds, etc.)

US uses both, Imperial is it's main since it's the one used in public. (speed, distance, etc). and that's what they take here.

In US schools teach you both.


It's the same with Maternal Leave. Just because it's not on federal level i can't think of any State that doesn't have any...

Imperial is used in public in Britain. They measure distance in miles and they use a lot of imperial measurements like pounds and pints.

Actually, grams and kilograms are most commonly used to measure mass I find. Sure, go to a market stall run by some farmer (or equally traditional institution) then they may give you a pound of meat or something, but it's usually metric.
Miles and mph is a different matter, but when learning to drive all the figures are in metric. (e.g. fog is defined as visibility below 100m, tire tread depth is 1.6mm, etc)

That's because if you actually want to achieve anything scientifically, you need to use metric. The only way science works is that the maths can be a universal language, that's why chemical symbols are the same, regardless of language.

The point is that the official language used by the country.

Because our birthrates are dropping and it makes the fathers have less time with their children at a highly important stage of development due to needing to support the child and wife, or for single mothers where you literally cannot leave for work when you have a child for quite some time.

It is not the fault of a working family that is the cause of the low birth rate but a change in how our society has been set up where men in some nations do not wish to get married seeing it as, too much risk of time, money and legalities. So many men don't get married like in Japan where many men have given up on sex.

The low birth rate is a result of how our gender relations have changed and because of feminist policies the birth rate will continue to decline.

Or the mother could take time off to take care of the child, if she can not take off work, hire a sitter.
When you take time off work to care for a child you have less experience and therefore less likely to be hired.

because having children should not be viewed as a mistake or a simple choice, since children are every societies future.
if there is no society there also is no reason to support other parents beside yourself as a parent. so your question makes sense, depending on how you were raised and where you come from and i am a bit curious just to know where i never want to end up.
and so far i never heard of any company that had to shut down because they were paying parental leave... the idea in itself is just weird.
