which is grammatically correct;
>lets omit letters because we're lazy fat americans and its a waste of our fat american breath to pronounce that extra 'u' better yet lets ommit all letters so we dont have to use our mouth muscles to communicate
Except for the fact that you don't pronounce the U in UK spellings, they're completely useless.
>brits complain about american english
>american english is more faithful to older variations
It's actually the UK that bastardized English and they don't even know it.

>Britbongs talking shit with Americucks about language
Brits are Old English.
Metric is okay in most cases. I don't like their lacking a foot equivalent. People get hung up in the raw logic argument and forget that intuitive relatability is a valid factor as well.
Also, you will never sell Celsius to me. Not when 100“ isn't even water's boiling point as advertised. Both are arbitrary numbers attached to temperature, but Farenheit has greater fidelity concerning the range humans comfortably feel.
This argument has come into existence roughly 1 hour ago and people are already vehemently taking sides and defending it.
God bless America.
Celsius is pretty retarded.
>b-but muh logic
>implying a condensed scale is ever good
Fahrenheit has greater specificity, which you need to use decimals to reach in Celsius.
Nobody wants to say "it's 20.456 degrees today"
>Farenheit has greater fidelity concerning the range humans comfortably feel.
Absolutely. American engineer so I was taught and practiced to use any system of units interchangeably. Fahrenheit and MPH make way more sense in everyday usage than their metric equivalents. People get hooked up on the dumb shit that only one way is the correct way. In work or science, obviously keep them all to one system if possible but that's not always the case.
Depends on how it is pronounced, not how it is spelled. A similar example would be "a UI/a User Interface" because it's also against the grammatical rule, but the U sounds more like a hard Y.
