Days are shorter than months are shorter than years

American English basically attempts to make things roll off the tongue the easiest, "The 23rd of March" takes slightly longer than "March 23rd" so we changed it.
For many places 0 is very cold and 100 is very hot, whereas with Celsius you stay at the beginning half I believe? Not sure for the most part. I'd much rather use Celsius in a lab than in everyday use.
SI units instead of metric is simply because we don't want to change, originally a long time ago someone made inch and foot the standard units and then miles and yards just arbitrarily and we stuck with it.

^ what he said
the day / month / year format is official where I live but it's far easier to simply say march 23rd instead.
I disagree that it should be used as an official format seeing as the amount of administrative confusion that it brings isn't worth the convenience but that's just my opinion

It's not arbitrary, it's just not centered around having easy conversions. Not saying it's better than Metric, but calling it Arbitrary and retarded to exaggerate the differences is only hurting your own cause by making you look like a pompous ass.
And the date system is easier because that's how you say it. I.E. you would say it's March 17, 2017, and then would write the date the same way.

based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system.
On Fahrenheit's original scale the lower defining point was the lowest temperature to which he could reproducibly cool brine (defining 0 degrees)
The precise origin of the yard is not definitely known. Some believe it derived from the length of a stride or pace. One postulate was that the yard was derived from the girth of a person's waist, while another claim held that the measure was invented by Henry I of England as being the distance between the tip of his nose and the end of his thumb.
As for the numbers themselves, base 12 and base 16 do each have their own merits, but what possible logical reason could you have to do your maths in base 10, your weight in base 16, and your length in base 12? Nothing fits together and the only reason not to make it fit is "well that's just the way it's always been"
And people who write the date dd/mm/yy instead of mm/dd/yy do not say March 17th, they say the 17th of March.

**mrloki rolled image** ehhh, you should remove Brazil from that list, while SUS (sistema unico de saude) the "free health care" - does exist ... it's known more as free deathcare ...
You go in for emergency surgery because you got run over by a truck and it they schedule your "emergency surgery" 48 hours after you've got to the hospital. You go in with a heart attack, you get out dead, because there are no doctors to treat you...
If you want to have medical assistance in Brazil, you need a plano de saude - a paid health care - those will try to rob you and won't actually offer you quality service, but you can get emergency help and some normal doctors for when you got a wild rash or something

EUROPE IS NOT A SINGULAR COUNTRY YOU ABSOLUTE RETARD. What is it with Americans and thinking people refer to themselves as "European", or feel they belong to "Europe". We are a clusterfuck of independent nations, most with more history by themselves than America has as a whole.

Hurrr durrr they had german hertitage so the germans did it
Americans designed it
Americans ran diagnostics and logistical support
Americans had and funded the facilities
Americans had previous experience from other missions
Americans had the program and other scientists
Americans thought of the plan
Americans had the idea
Americans bought the parts
Americans built the rockets
Americans launched the rocket
But it wasn't an American rocket, just because it was built by a German who became an American.
If I moved goto Germany, became a German citizen and helped make a tank design and they used it, it's not a fucking American tank.

yes, but that was a very small portion of the entire engineering group working for naca/nasa. the total amount of people involved in the apollo program was over 400,000. that's a lot. von braun and some of his guys were definitely the most important engineers, but they didn't make the apollo missions happen alone.

You can get US citizenship in under a year in cases like his. US citizenship is so worthless when it is devalued as heavily as it is. It means nothing.
Besides, it's not like he moved under his free will, he and many other rocket scientists at the time were taken to the USA during the aftermath of WW2.

We're stuck with it till our economy is better. If we chance now, all of our "Socialism" is going to want us to replace every instrument of measurement in existence, causing a bigger economic problem. There are flaws, but it doesn't hurt anyone as much as if we would chance it.
