I'm Canadian and Farenheit pisses the hell out of me, I mean I can deal with feet and pounds or whatever when we're just talking a couple day-to-day uses, but Farenheit is just so difficult and unnecessary.

Ummm no you don't because Celsius is neither difficult nor unnecessary, it's the best way of measuring temperature for daily use. Everyone accepts that, it's not debated whatsoever; it's just a plain simple fact. America is just too stubborn to change. I accept that most Americans probably won't like it because they were raised with something else, and that's fine, but if they say that Fahrenheit is better that's just being stupid.

I think you also have to take into account it's not only stubbornness, but also the economics of change. Doing so would mean a total overhaul in our education system in terms of textbooks, charts, graphs, teaching aides, etc. and I can guarantee that the government doesn't want to pay that expense, or can't. I'm American, and I agree that celsius is the more logical choice (really, the whole metric system is) but I think that political and financial factors hold us back more than mere "stubbornness." Also on that note, I'm sure textbook manufacturers lobby the **** out of our government to get them to switch to metrics, because that way they'd not only get to reprint a **** ton of textbooks and make a killing off of it, they would also streamline their production. No hate, just logics and such. Aaaaand I'm out!

Quite honestly, Fahrenheit feels like a percentage scale if you live in a temperate climate. Where I live it rarely ever maxes out past 100, so the hottest days of summer in the upper 90's can be viewed as "96%" heat, and the coldest it ever gets is in the single digits, rarely below 0. So it is almost like "7%" heat.
