Why America can't just use the metric system? I don't think using imperial system is so effective.

>>26975355
It's not that simple though. Getting 300+ million people to stop using a system that they've always used is pretty hard. Then there's the fact that every single fucking thing would have to be relabeled. I'm not saying that it shouldn't be gradually implemented, but you can't change a huge country's infrastructure and thought process overnight.

>>
>>26975397
not really. metric is superior in every way but of course if you're used to imperial you'll think it's better. here we are taught metric in school but many also learn imperial due to parents/grandparents and will usually use imperial for certain things(weight and height mainly) and metric for everything else
>>
>>26975384
I'm actually quite happy you are learning. We also learn metric in school and use it in all scientific fields.
>>
>>26975504
I like it for cooking, not baking, but cooking on a stove. Baking is a science though. When you're doing something on a stove top it's a lot easier to go with volume measurements than weight. No need to weigh shit out to make dinner.
>>
>>26975355
You know, in construction and surveying, we just use decimal feet. All the convenience of Metrics, without having to change everything in the country.

Also, most people should know both, at least basically
>>
>>26975355
Eh, you do your measurements, convert to metric, do the math, convert back. Problem solved.
>>
>>26975504
Most people I know would say Metric is better than imperial. However, on the subject of height, metric is almost too precise. We change height from the morning to the evening by up to half an inch. That would be a pretty decent swing in metric, but in imperial you can still ballpark yourself around the same height.
>>
>>26975504
Imperial is better if you dont have to convert things.

Take speed for example.

100 MPH is fast. Its a good marker for fastness. If its below, its not 'too fast'. If its above it is too fast.

Whats 100 KPH? Its like, bland not main highway but back road highway speed. Completly meaningless.

Now lets look at temperature. 100 F is hot. Anything below that is not too hot, anything above that is too fucking hot.

0 F is what you set your freezer to to preserve meat long term.

This is much more useful for day to day human life than basing everything on the temperatures that regular water has a state change at sea level.

1. Its salt water, not pure water, that is most prominent on this planet anyway (and Fahrenheit coincidentally uses brine for one of his measurements)
2. Who the fuck cares about the average fucking atmospheric pressure at sea level? Its never going even be that for more than a millisecond, and as time passes the temperature will literally change as earth loses atmosphere.

One acre can produce food for 4 people (a family) using traditional agricultural and livestock practices. It is a sensible way to measure land.

What does 1 square km do, exactly?
>b..but it kind of is enough for 1000!
No, large scale food production uses entirely different processes and has entirely different efficiency

>>26975428
fractions. The ever ingenious romans did not use decimals, instead for things before 1 they used 12ths. 12ths are good because they can be divided into halfs, thirds, quarters, sixths, and of course twelves.

It is much more useful in common use to say that you have to fold something into thirds than 'into 0.33 repeating's'

Paper sizes.

two sheets of letter arranged side to side with a small amount of space for binding creates a total visual area which is the golden ratio exactly.

A4 paper is an atrocity.

Get off the europe 'muh sophistication' bandwagon and realize the country that put a man on the moon may actually be doing it right.
>>
>>26975736
This

I would say HUMAN HEIGHT is the ONLY place Imperial is better.

When you get into buildings and height of inanimate objects metric becomes better
>>
>>26975757
mph is better for driving. because that same 100kmph, which is fast, and is a good blend of speed and safety, equates to 60mph, which is one mile per minute. so if you are going at 100kmph but using mph, you know exactly how long its gonna take to get where youre going.

The most fundemental point of a measurment system is that it's supposed to be precise
>>
>>26976217
yeah. here we usually display both anyway so it's really not an issue. like i said many here use both systems depending what they are doing and know how to do very rough conversions pretty quick
>>
>>26975355
But we do use metric for everything important. The only thing we don't use it for is everyday use. I can't estimate a distance in meters intuitively like I can with feet. But for those sorts of things it comes down to preference and familiarity, like the Canadian guy is saying. There's no real right or wrong in those situations. So really the system we've got going on is perfectly fine.

Except you cant. 0 and 100 celsius have no applicable usefulness for daily human life, 100mph is a more significant speed than 100kph, an acre is a sensible unit of land, its more useful to measure things in feet than mm for human-sized projects.

metric is arbitrary as fuck and its only strong point is conversion, none of its measurements are proportioned for the reality humans experience.

He's right though. 0C isn't particularly cold and it never even gets close to 100C as far as weather is concerned. So 100C is utterly useless and 0C is simply arbitrary.

By contrast 0F and 100F represent the approximate lower and upper limit of human tolerance. Below zero and it's starting to get dangerously cold, above a hundred and it's starting to get dangerously hot.
>>
>>26976510
It would be the same process, yes, but it would require a much larger campaign to convert to metric since there's a much larger population, plus Americans are notoriously stubborn. There was a big movement to switch to metric in the 80's, in fact a highway in the south part of my state is the only one in the country to use metric for distance because it was made when the conversion seemed inevitable. But it was just too hard to change all the signs and everything, plus as I said Americans are stubborn.

Under a certain amount of pressure. What good is that? Its not a practical measurement system. I can guarantee you that wherever you live, water boils at a temperature other than exactly 100 C, and freezes at a temperature other than exactly 0 C

Fahrenheit is more practical for expressing human comfort.

100 Is hot
70 is room temperature
50 is brisk
30 is around where water freezes
0 is where you preserve food

0 is where water freezes.
100 is where water boils.

Now lets use this system to construct an 'average' temperature scale.

0 is cold as fuck.
10 is cold as fuck.
20 is very chilly.
30 is warm.
40 is hottish.
50 is dead.

Oh, look at that, i used less numbers and the scale is more accurate.

Why would we need to 'relate' to celcius? The only time you need to intuit a temperature is when you're dealing with atmospheric temperature. And like I already said, fahrenheit is the more logical system for that.

Nobody here has trouble with celcius when we need to use it. It's a very simple measurement system and very good for most things. Just not weather.

And look at how obtuse that would be for discussing the temperature of daily life. You have this tiny meaningless range of strange numbers. Whereas celsiusfags have to use odd numbers like '19' and '37' to describe their temperature, glorious imperial masterace can use sensible round numbers or, if we so desire, a perfect subset of 10ths for getting the temperature just right.

Metric is a a european invention to brainwash the world and turn everyone into inhuman unfeeling monsters who are removed from their natural perspective provided by the superior and more naturally inclined imperial system.

Those are not the temperatures water freezes and boils at though, those are the temperatures that water freezes and boils under a certain amount of pressure. That is the arbitrary part.

The arbitrary things in fahrenheit are based on things like measurements of human body temperature and SALT WATER (which is more important than regular water you filthy anti-salt codex alimentarius eurocommie). Clearly these are the things for glorious human race to base their measurements on, not arbitrary pressures.

Here is the problem. Who gives a fuck what temperature water boils at. Do you measure the temperature to make sure you just get to boiling when you boil water? No, you just throw the fucking pot on there and turn the dial up until it starts boiling. Knowing when water boils it literally one of the most useless things to possibly know.

100f and 0f make up the rough range of human comfort so we can more precisely discuss the temperature.

It doesn't, it freezes around 30ish, depending on what part of the world you live in. at sea level its about 32. This is a much more commonsensical way to look at things that drilling into peoples minds 'water freezes at exactly 0C'. I wouldn't be surprised if most of people people implying implications at my claims that fahrenheit is superior dont even know that it depends on pressure at all.

This is the danger of teaching absolutes. Imperial is nice and approximation based, teaching real world knowhow

We use it for science. Do you really think changing to the metric system would be successful when there is no significant advantage in everyday life outside of dickwaving contests. Consider how you have to convert to Imperial sometimes, now imagine having to convert to metric every time you attempt to measure something so that you can get a reasonable sense of scale.

It doesnt matter, the point is metricfags claim their system is better, when its just another example of europeans trying to fix things that arent broken, then acting all superior over everyone who just sticks with what works perfectly fine.

It is literally the worst kind of intellectualism to simply desire to sit around all day re-classifying things so you can feel smug about it.

Call me when you get a system based on actual universal constants (and no, kelvin is not based on universal constants, its starting point is, but the width of its units are just copied from celsius, which is arbitrary), then you can claim superiority. Except its still probably going to be less convenient than fahrenheit for every day use because the people who make it will undoubtedly already be corrupted by metric and not understand the value of having sensible ranges in your units that actually have applicable parallels to actual living reality and nature and don't just try to be exact sub-divisions of one another

We know what the freezing point of water is too though. 0C or 32F. Not that hard. And you don't need the exact numerical value of the freezing point of water for everyday life.

This is largly irrelevant to humans because not only are humans warm blooded and don't give a fuck if its freezing, but water in the real world is not pure h2o and thus will have different freezing points than pure water anyway.

To us the temperature that water freezes at it just one more thing in nature, nothing particularly important, maybe something worth knowing about some time.

I just realized something : if we can easily learn any measurement system when we are young (Americans don't have more or less problem withs estimating distance, understanding how cold it is outside than any other people on this planet), it means that the only difference between metric and imperial system is how we convert units and scale with them.

I can convert 123157234 metres to kilometres easily in my head (actually, I don't have to calculate at all), you can't convert 123157234 yards to miles without using a calculator. That's the main reason. Celsius is a bit special since it's actually based on science.

>>
>>26975757
Do you really not understand that we can say 1/3 of a meter?

Celsius is more effective in arctic climate because it is much more important to know if temperature is around 0°C than 0°F. Do you know why? Because roads are the most slippery around 0°C when the ice melts and reforms regularly. 0°F fills no purpose other than saying that it is cold which everyone allrwady knows at that point.

100MPH is faster than allmost all countries allow you to drive. What you should consider is that 70MPH is as strange to have as a maximum speed limit as 110KPH.

I guess you should start using metric for agriculture as square kilometer is probably a more accurate messurement for how much land is needed to sustain four people than an acre is. This is more true for the US than for most countries.

Everyone changed from imperial because it is stupid, more so when you realise that a foot was not equally long in either Sweden, France or the US. When people say that Napoleon was short for example they assume that his measurements were made in American feet and not French feet which is an honest misstake but still retarded.

There would be no reason to ever convert yards to miles. nobody does that, if we need less than a mile we use tenths of a mile, though we rarely do because anything closer than half a mile is within pointing distance

>our high and low range for temperatures are rooted in science, but the incremental changes are just as arbitrary as Fahrenheit
It is based on Kelvin, the incremental change is not arbitrary.
1K=1°C
0°C=273,15K
100°C=373,15K
Kelvin is an absolute mesure based on the three law of thermodynamics.
It's because of Kelvin if water don't boil at 100°C (99,983) at normal atmosphere anymore.

>>26978008
Kelvin's incremental changes are just as arbitrary, the only difference is the concept of absolute zero

Yeah, those are the official standing measurements, but when people say 'one cup of flour and 1 teaspoon of salt' in the Netherlands, they usually literally mean 1 cup like in pic related full of flour, and one of those spoons with salt (flat, not a big pile on it)

Oh, they die too. Though they cheated on their tests, they were never smart. Only autistic whites remain.

Ten years down the road the US changes its name to brittania in honor of the new ruling chancelor's waifu's homeland. Within a century, it has annexed much of north america, made starcraft 2 its national sport, anthrocon a holiday, deprecated most "pleb" jobs with robots, made free hot pockets and cheetos part of every welfare check, executed every microsoft and apple employee with replica katanas, legalized loli, and dumped the entire defense budget on scientists researching real life catgirls and furries. Within 200 those scientists have met with success and the brittanians become their own species, with furry men and anime catgirl women, all with amazing strength and intelligence. Despite all this, they still prefer their anime waifus and husbandos.

Their military, armed with laser katanas and phasers set to kill, dominates the world, destroying every "normalshit" that stands in their way with utmost prejudice. The human era comes to close, and the autists expand their ruthless, psychopathic and degenerate empire into space. What few intelligent races they encounter, they either enslave for carnal purposes or exterminate, for each and every one is still chained by social skills and empathy, until they finally meet themselves from the future. The two clash in a violent orgy of war and mutual masturbation, and all life is annihilated from the universe.

The last human alive, kept in a dreaming stasis for posterity, wakes up and sees the dying hours of sentience. His last words before having his face blown off and his anus ravaged by unrealistically large dog penis?

I don't get this bullshit.

How is saying "it's 70 degrees" outside better than "it's 23 degrees"? Or "five feet eleven inches" better than "one meter eighty"?

It's just a matter of habit, imperial isn't better in any way than metric for every day stuff, it's just because you're used to it.

I can get over Americans using the imperial system. It's fine, it's just like a language, some seem more logical but in the end what's logical is what you're used to.

But fuck you guys for making a billion 1,000,000,000. Did you guys just skip the milliard altogether because you wanted to be able to say you have billionaires? Did someone get it wrong and was in denial so much that it became the standard?

Milliard. Correct word for 1.000.000.000

1 million = 1.000.000
1 milliard = 1.000.000.000
1 billion = 1.000.000.000.000 (= 1 million ^ 2 ; a "bi-million")
1 billiard = 1.000.000.000.000.000

That is the only objectively superior temperature scale.

Yeah, based on physical limits that we don't know and which would involve things like 10^(-24) temperature units. What you're looking for is planck temperatures which is defined as

sqrt((h-bar)*c^5/(G*boltzmann constant))

Which you are probably too stupid to understand or use anyway.
