one of the main reasons that we dont switch to the metric system is the cost, we'd have to change textbooks, tools(although most tool owners own a combination of both) factories, cars, measuring tools, everything.

it's not that we can't learn, the metric system is incredibly easy to understand it's just the cost thats holding us back

But... but Farenheit is more accurate...
User avatar #35 to #29 - iridium (10/05/2013) [-]
There really is no such thing as "accuracy" when it comes to measuring units, because it's all based in a perspective.

Metric is just reasonable because everything is in multiples of 10.

glorious celsius masterrace reporting in:
0 degrees = it's kinda cold
-1 to -30 it's cold as **** , it's snow n **** ************
1< degrees = rain isnt frozen
20< it's actually warm
-8

Celsius is based on the freezing and boiling points of water, at sea level. 0 is freezing, 100 is boiling, round everything inbetween. Or put decimals, **** , Metric doesn't care, as long as it isn't fractions. It makes sense.

Sorry, it really bothered me.

Celsius isn't any more logical than Fahrenheit, it just fits to a different purpose.

0-100C is the temperature at which water is liquid, ok, thats nice if you're working with water I guess...even scientifically speaking it's no better for anything else anyway though...

0-100F is the average temperature range on a yearly basis of a fairly temperate climate, so that's good if you live in like 50% of the inhabited area of the planet...so you know it's more relevant for more people on a daily basis, but a bit harder to memorize I guess...

I ******* hate pricks who took like 2 physics classes in college and think that metric is actually somehow superior.

Yeah and Kelvin is based on Celsius

Tumblr knows that you hate the rANDOM JUMP TO CAPSLOCK AND THE UNNECESSARY "DID YOU JUST" COMMENTS. They know us better than we know them, they know we will read this. They know we will share this and proceed to hate it. Our hatred gives them bonrs.

luckily a logical ammount of feet is a yard, and so on

As an American, I wish we actually would switch to Metrics. So much easier to understand then Customary.

You're telling me; satnav says "in 200 yards" and the display is showing me in points of a mile and I'm like WHAT IS THAT IN METRES?! GLORIA WHY U DO THIS?!

Fahrenheit is better than celsius because celsius is based on water while fahrenheit is based on human living conditions.
User avatar #145 to #144 - anonymoose ONLINE (10/05/2013) [-]
They're both as precise as each other.

Celsiuis is a logical unit as much as Fahrenheit is. They're both arbitrary units - by which I mean, the 0 on the scale doesn't actually represent the absence of the thing being measured.
If you want a logical unit for temperature, it's Kelvin.
But yeah, America uses pretty ****** units. It's kinda funny that they still use the units of Imperial Britain, the country they freed themselves of so proudly.

I understand why one would argue that metric is better than imperial.

But I really can't see how Celsius is superior to Fahrenheit. The freezing and boiling points of water are not difficult to remember.

Celsius isn't even that logical compared to Kelvin, put the Kelvin away would be better.

Is it really that big a deal for people to learn 2 systems of measurement? Fahrenheit makes more sense for a lot of day-to-day uses, Celsius makes more sense if you're doing science. If we were going to go 100% which was better for science, we'd all be using Kelvin anyway.

I like the metric system, cause its easy to use.    
   
but, sometimes we also use imperial.
