    1 mile is 1.609344 kilometers
    1 pound is 453.59237 grams
    I rest my case.

    That Standard is easier?

    It’s rounder (if such a word exists).
    For example, a logical human being says 1 mile equals 1.609… km. One never says 1 kilometer equals 0.62137… miles…

    and if you are into science you would know that the IS is already the standard (except for NASA: they botched a satellite launch because “derp, meters? duuurrr hurr”)

    I just Europeans to shove things up their own caca holes.

    I know it’s USA and other insignificant places with the imperial system, but I’ve been raised with that one and the metric one just looks too ugly.

    The US customary system is based off of the English system. The Imperial System wasn’t developed until later, and is different.

    they are frakking numbers! also, SI is based on as much as absolute measures, like the second or the meter (mass is still questioned, but Paris sample its ok for non quantum mechanics nerds)
    Standards are made to simplify the world… I cannot buy Ameritards screws because they don’t fit on my japanese car assemblied in east europa 🙂

    Actually, the probe was engineered using English units. NASA screwed it up not because they don’t know metric but because they DO. NASA assumed the units were metric when they weren’t.

    The only part of the metric system I hate is Celsius.

    DAMN YOU CELSIUS. I DON’T CARE IF YOU’RE BASED ON SUCH A CONSTANT AS WHEN WATER BOILS AND FREEZES. WHEN IT IS FUCKING HOT AS FUCK OUTSIDE, IT JUST DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT TO SAY HOLY SHIT, TURN ON THE AIR CONDITIONING…ITS IN THE THIRTIES.

    Because saying it’s in the FUCKING NINETIES is ridiculous. I don’t want to be near fucking boiling.

    I’ve watched and read a lot of DIY in american measurments, I don’t see how anyone can find it easy. I was gonna try post something clever, but after browsing wiki, it’s easier to just let you know the simple truth; american and british measurments lick the dogs balls!! Metric is the way!!
    mm,cm,M,KM
    ml,L,KL
    mg,g,KG,T
    piss easy

    It’s not the units’ names that are difficult, it’s getting used to learning the equivalent of inches, feet, yards, etc. in the metric system.

    So much math is unnecessary when things around you are NOT measured with the metric system, so since I doubt the USA (which is where we branch off of) will make the switch to metric any time soon, I won’t bother learning the calculations.

    The only times I’ve been forced to use an online converter has been on UK-based social websites that ask for kgs and cms.
