    Americans can't find their country on a map, now you want them to divide and multiply by ten?

    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...

  • vrenak 4 days ago

    Number 3 means changing voltage and frequency too, as the US and some others use 60 Hz, instead of 50 Hz, and 110 V intead of 230 V. Sadly to do the switch it will require a total shutdown, and alterations to billions of devices.

    Agreed, I live in the UK and it makes far more sense to drive on the other side. Sweden did in overnight in 76! Just like that, no spike in accidents no issues no fuss. If the world used metric, drove on the right and used wall socket with an earth the planet would be safer and healthier.

    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_*

    @Ben Angel So I've never died at 35°C which is equivalent to 95°F. And it's a surprise that every scientist, even the NASA uses the metric system, that makes "no sense".... Water freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C. Makes no sense at all. Because uhh... ?

  • Sofian Freigeist 11 days ago

    @Graham Thornton Y....yeah... and because the metric system is so unpractical, every scientist, even your NASA and the whole world use it without any problem at all.Except Liberia, Myanmar and the U.S. And I don't think the U.S. is on the same level as Liberia, is it?

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

    @Les Brown Yes True. Also older, as it uses the British Queen Anne definition defined around 1707, a full 117 years before the Imperial Gallon was even invented!

  • Ashkan Ak 10 months ago

    not gonna lie but the metric system is really easy, also i'd say its more precise

  • AutoMan Dan 3 months ago

    I agree its stupid , 0 degrees is freezing and 100 degrees is boiling and 1 Gallon is 10 liters , Its not hard America

  • marceelino 8 months ago

    Just to set you right metric system and SI unit for temperature is Kelvin. It is much more precise way of measuring than imperial system. It is scientific. Imperial system is just based on some old kings hands and feet. If you are retarded you can use it.

  • @Michael Davis Yes it is! Metric system is lightyears better.

    You may have won Abraham's Plain 1759 but measurement-wise it seems like the Quebecois got you in the end.

    "Can you explain to me how the country that can send men, and hopefully women, to the moon, is still in gallons and inches." It's easy — the people doing serious work like that don't use the Imperial system :)
