War, Brits decided to **** with America's **** during the Napoleonic
Wars. Raided shipping, conscripted American sailors and that sort of ****. US retaliates by invading Canada. Brits and Canucks beat back the Americans, they fought for a couple years and the White House is burned down by the Brits. An armistice was signed with pretty much nobody gaining anything. Before the Armistice reached the Americas, Brits attacked New Orleans and got wrecked by Andrew Jackson.
The End.

Centum is Latin for 100.

But as a mathematical prefix it means one out of hundred.

I don't exactly know how it originated, but don't expect language to be perfectly logical.

Not technically true. CENT means 100, based on the latin prefix. Although Hecot also means 100.


(Hence why centipedes have around 100 legs not 1/100 legs, and a century is 100 years not 1/100 years)

century - 100 years
centenarian - 100 year old person
centipede - insect with 100 (or near 100) legs
centner - 100 kilograms
centigrade - measurement of temperature from 0 (freezing water) to 100 (boiling water)
centuple - times 100, like double or triple
centennial - 100 year anniversary
percent - measuring numerics that add to a total of 1/1 or 100%

these are examples which prove that in modern age literature, in the normal english speaking, we use 100 to describe a HUNDRED THINGS as well as A HUNDREDTH OF A THING

Literally the only thing I claimed is that centi is the metric prefix that means 1/100 and not 100. None of those listed are based off an SI metric measurements.
Centigram, Centimeter, Centisecond, Centikelvin, Centiampere, Centimole. Those would all be right, regardless of how ridiculous using them would sound. And none of them mean 100 of the original unit.

Although you're right about 'centi' meaning both hundred and one out of hundred (the picture is from an online dictionary and I put it there for the other users who might disagree) the issue at point was whether the orginal comment (#7) was right or not.
But he was specifically talking about mathematical prefixes, and as a mathematical prefix it only means 1/100, and not both.

Therefore he wasn't right.

Case closed.

A really simple comparison between Imperial (UK and USA) and Metric system (EU)

Lenght
10 mm = 1 cm (centimeter)
100 cm = 1 m (meter)
1000 m = 1 km (kilometer)

Weight
1000 g = 1 kg
1000 kg = 1 t

We mostly use metric in UK. I wasn't even taught imperial units, the generation before me was taught both. The roads here still use imperial though so I am familiar with how far a mile is. Rules here usually have inches on one side and cm on the other but I don't think I've ever used the inches side. There're some other situations where people will use both also, like measuring a person's height and weight. Officially we have switched metric, these things take time.

Yeah have you noticed that? We tend to measure people in imperial, but everything else in metric. Like we'll measure people in feet and inches, and weigh then in pounds and stones. But distances large or small, mass or objects etc in metric. Cars have the speedometer in the system of the country who made it, generally.

Oh and also, the calculations. I think its easier and faster to figure out that ''56cm'' is 0,56 meters'' than ''56 inches is 4,6666 feet'' (yes, i know that would usually be stated as 4 feet 8 inches, but still).

some americans are cunts and are ridiculously stupid. obviously, this content is exaggerated to make a point, but it's hard to see that when you're too busy raging. i just dislike it because it makes it sound like we're all dumb. no matter what, americans are always portrayed as the stupid ones. yeah, i did say that 'some' are. 'some' meaning a part of the whole. we don't add the "u" to some words. wow we're ******* stupid. some people forget the metric system because we don't use it outside of math and science. wow, we're trash. a good part of the country is patriotic about where they're from. such redneckery. americans are known for being extremely loud, right? i mean, that's a stereotype that some of us have been forced to accept. so, we're loud when we whine about being made fun of. don't tell me nobody else has ever been offended by a post. because then, you'd be ************.
