    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...

    @DarkRaider28 You can use centimeters as a short unit like inches and decimeters as a middle measurement like foot. It's very easy: there are 100 cm in 1 m (1" is almost 2.5 cm, or 2 ½ cm if you prefer) and there are 10 dm in 1 m (1 ft is almost the same as 3 dm)

    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 Why doesn't it make sense. Scale is just fine enough. You can't probably tell 1c difference in temperature by feeling. Definitely makes sense more than scales that has 100 as roughly give or take temp of human body and 0 as some random weird chemical mixture. I mean was it a drinking game to come up with two stupidest reference points? :-D

    @Graham Thornton Oh sure - but seems it doesn't bother you to use 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, etc. Very "reasonable".

    @ukmdt No we don't. You're just an impersonator. Only the US and Burma use imperial.

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

    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.

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