I understand that for these America's system is less logical. But does it matter? I mean, honestly, do any of you really care. For daily purposes none of these matter. Why does it make a difference whether the month or day comes first? It's still perfectly understandable. Why is Celsius any better than Fahrenheit? The only difference between them is that Celsius is based on the freezing and boiling points of water. Remind me again why that is any better. In a scientific field, then sure your system is better. But guess the **** what. We use your system is the things that matter, too. Grow the **** up and find something important to bitch about.

Celsius is easier because it is using 10, while Fahrenheit looks illogical.
Also, it does matter for any country that wants to arrange business, scientific, anything of the sort that will involve numeracy and numbers, with the U.S.

Fahrenheit doesn't have to look logical. It's a system of measurement used primarily in daily life. When someone is deciding how much water to use in their instant ramen or how far a certain place is, they don't need to have a reason why that system is good. It just is. A cup's a cup and a mile's a mile. It works just as well as metric does in basic, daily life. And businesses and scientific institutions use metric. And by the way, your statement of Celsius using 10 is completely useless. It's based on the freezing and melting points of water. That's the only part that has that perfect 10. It's not like Fahrenheit doesn't have 100 degrees. It just isn't the boiling temp. of water. In fact, Fahrenheit is more logical in day to day life because of it's wider number range. It's much easier to differentiate between different daily temps in Fahrenheit because the differences in temp are much larger than in Celcius. Metric is better, but for where we use it our system is just as good.

Fahrenheit has a smaller grade and is used for more practical applications where you don't go hear absolute zero and dont approach the temperature of the sun

I see someone downvoted you. Don't worry, I'm the OP, and I have to say I did not post this to make people angry, and I never said european system is better. I want to debate the pros and cons of the systems.

About your comment, I will say that for science, neither european or Imperial are the best for it, Kelvin is the most used by Scientifist. Farenheit is nice, but for "normal" people (NOTE: Normal = people who is not in science, and only want to know at what grades the water is in boiling point, for example) is better Celsius , since 0 it's the temperature of water freezing, and 100 is the temperature of water boiling. Farenheit in my opinion is better in other cases.

Don't be rude, mate, nobody's insulting you, nor your system (The picture was a simple way of attracting people to debate)

Relax, <3
