but in the ancient world it really was just about the precious metal, take the british pound, the reason the £ symbol is a stylised L is that its literally the same as Lbs, or libres, the coinage at the time was silver sterling coins, and 240 of them (or 20 shillings) weighed exactly one pound, you were literally handing a person an actual weight of precious metal, and if you needed to pay in smaller amounts people would cut coins in halves or quarters, where we get terms like "penny farthing" from, aka a "fourthing" of the coin.

when people went from one kingdom to the next, coinage would change names, but giving someone a pound of gold or silver was pretty universal. due to the fact people would shave their coins or cut them it was most common to weigh your payment rather than count it. there is a reason the scale is the icon for commerce.

>>275453153
you should look up the efforts the international community goes to to maintain standard weights and measurements, they have "the kilogram" in a vault somewhere in france that all kilogram measurements all around the world are based on, but its losing atoms slowly over time, so they are searching for an alternative, thats why for other things, such as measurements of distance they use universal constants that are the same wherever you are.

12s were originally used because the Babylonians would count on their finger joints by pointing at them in turn with their thumb; 4 fingers, 3 joints each makes 12. If you need numbers over 12, you record the number of 12s you've already counted with your other hand, letting you count up to 60.

I was speaking about movies, you dumb eurocucks. Every film set in antiquity hires brittish actors. Gladiator or Troy had everyone talking like a bonglander. In the film Enemy at the Gates everyone is supposedly speaking Russian but they're played by Brits. Because of films Americans associate Brits with anything old or foreign. It destroys immersion when you have Julius Ceaser speaking in a plain midwestern accent but some posh British accent is for some reason well received.

> You will live for more days than months.

Alternatively.
> Days change more regularly than months.
> Months change more regularly than years.
> Years change the least often so its last.

Have you ever seen a german person in your movies?

Have you ever seen an italian person in your movies?

Have you ever seen a french person in your movies?

How the fuck do they sound like brits?

Even the tiniest countries like Malta or Luxenburg have their own accents when speaking English and don't get me startet on all the different languages and combinations of accents.

Seriously, what kind of historical pieces did you watch? GoT?

I agree that metric should be used for most things but the "foot" is a nice in between for inches and yards for some things
A lot of Americans know both systems, which is technically smarter than just knowing one

Only 2 countries use miles. Everybody else uses kilometers. I prefer to use kilometers and I'm american.

Why don't we just use a base8 system? It flows much more naturally for computers anyway, and it's not like base8 is hard to think of.

We have 10 fingers, and I guess all the systems we already use are deeply ingrained in culture and society. It'd take a massive global effort to make base 8 the norm, as good as it would be.

>>275450492
Yuroclap here. That system isn't arbitrary. For example 12 inches to a foot makes it easier to calculate in your head because it has a dozenal system. Metric is stupid in this regard. If you divide 1 with 3 you get 0.333333333333333

It's either hexadecimal or binary.

Do Brits actually think anything special of the queen, or is just another thing we say about them? I don't see why anyone would go that far for royalty, it's no different from dealing with the rich or anything else.
