1.) I use the metric system every single day. Every single American does, whether the realize it or not.
2.) Same with Celsius, but perhaps not as much. However a German made the scale we adopted, so Europeans can grab a ladder and step off their pretentious ******* high horse.
3.) The month-day-year format has its own equally credible logic behind it, namely that it orders significant digits from smallest to largest, which makes sorting multiple dates easier than placing the day first. However, this entire portion is just nitpicking because however you order the three damn things provides very little difference in understanding the current day out of the current month of the current year, so once again, **** off Europeans.
4.) **** your retoasts.

1) If you use the metric system everyday them stop using imperial all together.

2) the Germans may have invented it but only the US, Liberia, Burma still use it

3) So if it doesn't matter why bitch about it?

4)99% fj is retoasts get used to it

5) also stop assuming everyone who is different is European the USA is backwards compared to the rest of the world. (as is said in the content)

We (Americans) are leaders in almost every industry, and everyone is looking at us for this. For example who is the U.S. president?- Everybody knows
Who is the priminister of England / Germany / Greece - who gives a **** like they're doing anything interesting.

You could say that the amerifats are "bilingual" so to speak in measurements. I don't see a problem with it.

Good opinions, but about the fahrenheit scale , it may have been made by a german man , but you're still the ones using it. If i were to create a machine that kicks your balls 30 times in a minute , would i really be the idiot , or just the guy using it (alright, maybe a bit weird example , hope you get the point though)

If you've grown accustomed to that system, it really becomes second nature to you. I honestly don't know why everyone loves to pick a fight about our ******* measurement system.

You're right about that...   
But remember that the lack of an unified measure system led to failures and loss of money, I can recall a space mission that failed because of that (and the lack of proper communication between the nasa and the other ******* who participated)   
anyway, I don't live there and therefore I can't and will not give a ****... take a kitten instead

If they couldn't do basic conversion factors they deserved to fail

People overlook a major point with this: Americans use both. In our everyday lives we use miles, yards, feet, inches, pounds, Fahrenheit, etc, whereas in a classroom or professional setting we use kilometers, meters, milometers, grams, Celsius, etc. It isn't like we completely refuse to use the metric system, because the fact is is that every American knows how to use it, we just prefer to use the imperial system because we are used to it.

As for the date, February 17th just sounds better than the 17th of February, but that is just my opinion.

Secondly, we have tried to convert before. In the South some of the signs on the interstates say kilometers instead of miles, but the conversion was not complete because it is far too costly to completely replace every sign and re-measure the highways, as well as replace anything that uses the imperial system, such as scales. The only thing that stayed when we tried to convert was the 2liter soda bottles.

3 things....1. if we do it the complicated way....i guess that makes our system harder and requires more brainpower to figure out.
2. keep on bitching about it....that'll sure solve it.
3. i don't know why i posted this cuz i really don't give a ****.

1. Doing it slower and stupidly doesn't make you smarter. If I lift weights with knives on them does that make me stronger?
2. You are the one with the ****** up system, we can't do anything about it except laugh.
3. If you really didn't give a **** you wouldn't have replied
