    1. Strong standards do not official backing to be put into use. I am sure there are plenty of housewives in Britain still using the Imperial.

    2. And yet we are the only country that has robots and future missions to mars.

    3. I think it is a financial reason why we don’t use the metric system. Changing mile markers, speed limits, exit signs, and speedometers would cost a fortune. Plus, we’re stupid as fuck to learn something new.

    4. Canada’s been metric for a while now but everyone I knew there still measured people in feet and pounds. Like, it’s fine for me to describe a room as so and so meters but I couldn’t tell you how tall I am. One ninety or something.

      Anyway, you’re standing with some lofty giants there americans.

    6. Watch Top Gear, they still talk about miles per hour. Same up in Canada. So if they’re not using it, why should we? Oooh, everything divides by 10, so fuckin’ awesome!

    7. Actually, the United States uses both systems. Check the dimensions in a recent Government Motors service manual or the two scales on an automobile speedometer. The only difference is that the rest of the world dictates the metric system as the official government standard while people still use their traditional units as well. An excellent example is the unit of weight called the “catty”. Wikipedia notes it’s still in use despite their governments claiming to be metric.

    12. Countries like the UK are smart about which system they use. Take temperature. We say Fahrenheit when it is hot, and Celsius when it is cold. Distances are all in miles, unless it is engineering/science related.

      Amerifags are useless at mathematics so they can’t be arsed to learn to divide by 10 rather than 12, 6, 32 and 1609.344. Heck the US make it arsebackwards on themselves by using a different fucking pint and gallon measurement for fluids.

    15. In Canada:
      Everything come packaged in metric but when cooking we use tablespoon and cup.
      We measure speed in Km/h but long distance in miles.
      we weight things in metric and people in lb and kg.
      We measure horizontal things in metric and vertical thing in feet.
      Weather outside is in C but we use F for cooking.

    16. Engineers and Scientists both use metric i personally don’t care for it.
      Soon there’s going to be a system of measurement that surpasses both anyway in less than 10 years that people will adopt
