  • Bake749 (Feb 4, 2019)

    These random Trump jokes are really getting dumber and dumber. Make up something original.

    Going 300 k/h is way cooler than 180 m/h

  • loxymandles (Dec 27, 2018)

    It's actually km/h

  • Michael Davis (Nov 9, 2018)

    +Sergiu Cătălin Coprean No it isn't xD

    Great Pauline Hanson reference. "Please explain."

    +etcetra etcetra urghhhhhh, so true!

  • Bindesh Ghimire (Sep 14, 2018)

    Yeah all the over the world, they should have three things in common:1. Drive on the same side of the road2. Use the same system of measurement (Metric System)3. Use the same kind of wall socket for connecting electrical appliances..That would make the world way much easier place to travel and live...

    +Antonius The only countries where it would be very expensive are the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan (maybe Thailand and South Africa). Everywhere else, it's relatively cheap and easy since the infrastructure is not that developed and not everyone drives cars. But even in the developed countries, it would still pay back due to easier trade and cheaper cars, just maybe not in 5-10 years, and it definitely wouldn't be impossible anywhere.

  • Antonius (4 days ago)

    Driving on the same side of the road everywhere would be impossible. The amount of construction and adjustment is out of the question.

    Metric - 0 degrees Celsius is freezing, 100 degrees Celsius is boiling. Makes perfect senseImperial - *_Motherfucking 32 degrees Fahrenheit is freezing and 212 degrees Fahrenheit is boiling_*

  • Phil Baugh (Feb 4, 2019)

    You lost your argument at motherfucking.

  • Douglas J (Sep 14, 2018)

    Lol even the British switched and they're the ones who started the imperial system XD

  • Yongle96 (5 days ago)

    a mile was millem (a thousand) steps in ancient rome. millem is also the source of millenium etc. so no, the uk just copied it from ancient civilization, and no again, if you feel you have to use "imperial", it implies the ancient roman empire, not the uk colonial mafia.

  • Michael Davis (Dec 18, 2018)

    +Рамис Карама Yes I agree... The Imperial and U.S. Customary units evolved modernly from earlier Roman and Egyptian units of measurements like the 'Cubit' (1/2 Yard), Mille (Mile) and Uncia (Ounce). Just to name a few.

  • Sunil Prajapati (Sep 14, 2018)

    When Cate Blanchett says switch, you switch America

  • 姚澜 (Sep 16, 2018)

    I just thought of the "Mean Girls" switch voice hahahahhaa

  • vicky (Sep 14, 2018)

    I wanna sleep in a bed made of Cate Blanchett's voice.

  • Longhorn Fan Forever (Sep 16, 2018)

    I want to sleep with Cate Blanchett period.

  • Cristiana Pereira (Sep 16, 2018)

    I wanna sleep on Cate Blanchett.

  • Spicer Cook (Sep 14, 2018)

    Metric is way better than the old British Imperial system. I'm Canadian thank God we use Metric.

  • CarlyYoutube (Oct 24, 2018)

    A good way to explain why the metric system makes more sense. 5 - 10 = -5 not 5 - 10 = +23. I know your used to the imperial system because 23 sounds cold in F but I'm sorry a positive number should not be equal to something that's below freezing 0, just as in that math equation five minus 10 does not equal positive 23.
