I think the metric system is nice for math and science. Its nice to be able to convert anything by moving decimal places.

I think the English system is more useful for real life applications like measuring things. an inch and foot work are a better range for measuring things than a centimeter and meter...ie base ten expands too quickly for application. That is just a personal preference obviously. The real glory of the English inches is with fractions. everything is simply half as big as something else. you can rapidly determine half of any number. very important in word working and carpentry.

not trying to create a ********* , just wanted to lay out how I see it.

Its funny because America takes all the blame for the imperial system even though the British invented it.

Not once have in FJ have I seen AMERICA start this kind of flame war.
Kinda proves that if everyone else is attempting to make fun of America when uncalled for, then is not america truly in the right?

But seriously, does it ******* matter which system we use? France gave us the metric system in the first place.
Go make fun of France.

The best idea would be YEAR - MONTH - DAY so that it's chronilogically sortable (most significant digit -> least s.d.). Nobody writes dates like that so we're all retarded really.

Jewish candlesticks have 7 branches, though.

alternatively you could point out that americans are smart enough to remember complicated numbering, europe needs everything to be on a grid to make it simple and easy for their small heads.

Fahrenheit is a really nice way of measuring temperature. 0 is cold as **** , 100 is hot as **** , and anything outside this is considered extreme weather. As long as you can remember water freezes at 32, its almost perfect for weather. Its pretty worthless for science though.

I have never understood why every country gets so pissed off about Americas measurements .-.

when i went to study over there as an exchange student in high school, it was in a science class where we had lab, and i forgot why, but our professor started to list all the pros of converting to the SI units. For some unknown, unfathomable reason the student started attacking the professor with reasoning like "it's too complicated" or "only retarded countries use that system"

tl;dr other countries don't get mad about your measurements
they get mad about the people's ignorance and pride

I don't see why this has to be a debate.

Just let us do what we do, and you do what you do. What's the problem?
