I'm not even American, but you realise the first moon landing was a thing that happened using the imperial system right?

They used the metric system, as every scientist does. The imperial one was actually a pain in the ass because they had to convert everything for astronauts.

I'm American.
I prefer imperial because I'm used to it, but metric makes a ton more sense.

As an American who doesn't give half a **** about which measurement system people use, I only argue against the change for 2 reasons (actually read my reasons before thumbing down, please):

1. It would cost a lot to replace road signs to measure in kilometers instead of miles, and other misc. changes. Considering our economy is a flaming sack of crap as it is, we don't need this money sink.
2. Most Americans would be unhappy having to learn another measurement system and forsake the one they used their whole lives. The extreme among us would even devote more time and energy fighting the change than simply learning the new system would take.

If I had the money and job opportunities, and didn't have such huge fear of leaving my family, I'd actually like to move to Bristol in England. I consider myself patriotic, but America has been pretty gloomy these last couple decades. Also, I fear that they would hate me over there for being an Amerifag.

I don't care what system you use, I just find it strange that Americans use pounds but not stone?
can someone enlighten me here?
