When will you Europeans figure out that all Americans are taught both systems. We use Imperial for everyday things that don't require calculations, and we use metric (mostly) for science.

According to Europeans, we are stupid because we know two systems. I guess Bi-linguals are stupid too. Why don't they just learn English and nothing else?

First of all, America didn't just now discover it liked soccer.

Soccer has been a popular sport here for quite some time. It is the most popular youth sport in the country.

Note I said "Youth" sport. Because here its a game for children. Children who grow up and graduate to real sports like football, where players use strategy and teamwork instead of *********** chasing a ball for 90 minutes without scoring.

Its a boring, rather silly sport to watch. Much like our Nascar, where ridiculously designed cars drive in circles for hours until someone is declared a winner.

The difference is, we know Nascar is retarded. We don't try to force it on the rest of the world and insist they just don't understand how awesome it is.

Because it's on the moon, the flag slowly lost color and became pure white.

So France's.

Americans don't like Soccer, we like winning.   
When we win a game of Metric System, give us a call again.

MFW most Americans understand metric but prefer customary/imperial measurements because they teach us both in school while only metric is accepted in college and the higher sciences (Physical Science/Chemistry/Physics).

True story - I live in Europe.....

If I go to buy a TV - it is advertised in inches. The plates at the gym I go to still have pounds printed on the side. I have plenty of co-workers who measure distance in miles instead of kilometres. oh, and cooking.....none of the recipes I've found here use the metric system.

The only thing people seem to consistently use here is C instead of F for temperatures - and that's probably the one example where there is absolutely no benefit. The range of temps I've seen go from about 15 to 22. Nobody is converting to another unit.
User avatar #88 to #87 - testaburger (07/19/2014) [-]
Figured.

The UK is somewhat unusual in their use of units.
The rest of europe is a lot more consistent.
User avatar #147 - notthatgreat (07/19/2014) [+] (11 replies)
For scientific purposes, the metric system is better for doing experiments and changing from unit to unit doesn't require odd-ball numbers to convert centimeters to meters

For Everyday use, the Imperial system is best. Maybe it's just because that's what I'm used to, but I don't have any clue how much 50mg of flour is, but It's pretty easy for me to guess how much a cup it. And Fahrenheit is better than Celsius(Everyday use not science)

TL;DR
Science=> Metric
Daily Lives=>Imperial

I hate how vague the amount ''cup'' is.... like...coffee cup? tea cup? some giant cup where you eat soup from? or even a glass that you drink juice from?

I cringe when i see a recipe state something like '' 1 1/3 cups of -- '' online . Like wtf, how much am i supposed to take? At least i know that a gram or a millilitre is same in each country.

And as for Celsius/Fahrenheit, i prefer Celsius.. why? because when the weather outside becomes less than 0, i know that things are gonna freeze up (aka, snow and ice form in the winter.)... I dont get the logic behind Fahrenheit... The freezing point is like 32 F... Doesnt sound cold if im planning on going out.

I'm seeing quite a few Moon related comments here, yes the US flag was planted on the but you still miss a detail in that point You don't own the ******* moon because you put a flag on it

I'm just saying, everything starts with someone claiming it. That's how countries came to be in the first place.

It says"I should also point out that most of the imperial units are solely defined according to the metric system. Yes, an inch is literally 2.54 centimeters--no natural constants attached."

So if the International System of Units is flawed and the Imperial System was defined by it, it would be equally flawed.

Can you also introduce it to the British?

User avatar #56 - negitivzero (07/19/2014) [+] (1 reply)
while the metric system is way better for science, I feel the Imperial system has a better scale for every day use for some of the units
