It really isn't hard to learn the imperial system as a secondary system. I prefer the metric over imperial, but it is practical to know both until america get's it **** together and use metric.

Wot. But i'm in britain and we use metric and i know exactly what an inch and a gallon is.

I've read that it would cost Americans way more money than they have to convert the country to metric system efficiently. The imperial system is outdated and stupid, but for America it is inevitable.

Also, why are you getting mad about penis jokes? There's no reason to react to them unless your penis really is one inch...

An inch is about as long as your penis, and a liter is about the same as a quart, which is a fourth of a gallon.

look who's there another american neckbearded keyboardwarrior who he believes that using a system which uses unlogical steps from one measurement to another is better than something more popular and logical ... and to your penis comment... buddy you dont have to project your problems to other people ... and when I see that your favourite tags are ... tits and funny **** ... well I guess you must be pretty kickass yourself and a real ladiesman ....

Where in the unholy **** did you see anything about the imperial system being better than the metric system?

Oh, and it's more of a "sea-captain" beard, and I prefer the bowler to the fedora any day.

Look who's there, another butthurt newfag who can't take a joke. The metric system is better, but the imperial system really isn't that hard and still has dominion over the best thing in the universe-alcohol. When's the last time you ordered a liter of beer? No, you order a pint. A shot is an ounce, nobody orders 50ml of vodka.

And I put "tits" on all my content, which, I might add, is all OC. And funny stuff is the point of funnyjunk.

Metric-fag here.

It really depends on where you are getting the alcohol on the measurement scale that is used. Here in Ireland, we use pints for ordering. . . well, pints. But the version of a shot here is different to other places. I think, if I remember correctly, a shot in the UK is about half of what is ordered here. Either that, or the barman was merely trying to pull a fast one and prevent me from drinking.

As for spirits, I generally use the term litre when referring to any amount that is a litre. Other terms used include naggin and shoulder but they're generally just Irish names for them.

With regards to the relative ease of use, the metric system generally follows the rule of 10 which is why it can be regarded as easier. For instance, 14 pounds to a stone. Arbitrary numbers if you ask me. Compared to 1000 grammes to 1 kg.

So in conclusion....... alcohol should not be used to win arguments. . . nor create them. I'm off for 500ml of beer!

I know it's hard to imagine, but Germany orders shots in ml, beer in ,5 liters, bottles the same way, etc. Also their comma is the same as a period as far as measurements. I'm sure other places in the world do the same.

I assume dedaluminus was just kidding and that you need to calm your tits

Just because he answered your question and made a penis length joke, doesn't mean he is
1) American
2) A neckbeard
3) A keyboardwarrior
4) The owner of a small penis, hell since you act like that maybe yours IS one inch.

Why don't you gas the jews you stupid nazi. (and before you flip out again, this is once again, a rather tasteless joke)
