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.

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.

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.

I don't think his point is that other country's are weird. He's saying the Americas system is illogical

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 **** .

as a machinist in the US i use both the metric and english (imperial) quite often.

i like using the english system better because the units are easier to visualize in my minds eye. in the metric system there is no measurement roughly equivalent to a foot.
it jumps from 1 cm to 100 cm in a metre just for the sake of being perfect.

i find it easier to tell you im 6ft 1 inch tall instead of 1m 84cm

let me end with this, because we use a system which is different than your system, which we are used to, and like, our logic is flawed/retarded?

because we dont want to spend milloins of dollars changing a system which has served us well for 200+ years for the sake of rounding everything off to the nearest 10, we're retarded?

**** your logic.

Us Americans think of MONTH:DAY:YEAR as more of a sandwich, rather than a pyramid.

When people make fun of America for being different, but don't realize everything America has done for the better. I'm not a butthurt American I'm a butthurt Canadian because Canda is pretty much America's bitch.

That awkward moment when the "retarded rollercoaster" is based off of the English imperial system, Fahrenheit was Dutch, and in my city, we write the date "17 February 2012". . . So basically, we aren't retards, just academic and scientific thieves.

Ok, this has been posted way too many ******* times. And I'm tired of explaining the POSSIBLE logic of mm/dd/yyyy:

The number for months go from 1-12, days go from 1-31, and years have the largest numbers. Simple.
