    Cate Blanchett Thinks Americans Should Use the Metric System

    Americans can't find their country on a map, now you want them to divide and multiply by ten?

  • Sunil Prajapati (Sep 14, 2018)

    When Cate Blanchett says switch, you switch America

  • 姚澜 (Sep 16, 2018)

    I just thought of the "Mean Girls" switch voice hahahahhaa

  • Bindesh Ghimire (Sep 14, 2018)

    Yeah all the over the world, they should have three things in common:1. Drive on the same side of the road2. Use the same system of measurement (Metric System)3. Use the same kind of wall socket for connecting electrical appliances..That would make the world way much easier place to travel and live...

  • neArac (May 12, 2019)

    Also use Degrees Celsius and NOT Fahrenheit.

  • Ditya Alamsyah (May 7, 2019)

    3. bad idea. between the regions that uses 220 and 120v, there should be at least different sockets for those 2

  • The Rockstar Gamer (Sep 14, 2018)

    Metric - 0 degrees Celsius is freezing, 100 degrees Celsius is boiling. Makes perfect senseImperial - *_Motherfucking 32 degrees Fahrenheit is freezing and 212 degrees Fahrenheit is boiling_*

  • wino0000006 (May 7, 2019)

    +Graham Thornton Oh sure - but seems it doesn't bother you to use 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, etc. Very "reasonable".

  • Hirnlego999 (Apr 30, 2019)

    Would make sense to change one minute to 50 or 100 seconds too.

  • Ashkan Ak (Sep 14, 2018)

    not gonna lie but the metric system is really easy, also i'd say its more precise

  • AutoMan Dan (Mar 31, 2019)

    I agree its stupid , 0 degrees is freezing and 100 degrees is boiling and 1 Gallon is 10 liters , Its not hard America

  • marceelino (Oct 27, 2018)

    Just to set you right metric system and SI unit for temperature is Kelvin. It is much more precise way of measuring than imperial system. It is scientific. Imperial system is just based on some old kings hands and feet. If you are retarded you can use it.

  • Douglas J (Sep 14, 2018)

    Lol even the British switched and they're the ones who started the imperial system XD

  • neArac (May 12, 2019)

    +ukmdt No we don't. You're just an impersonator. Only the US and Burma use imperial.

  • Anthony Cunningham (Apr 27, 2019)

    +Douglas J actually, we use both. Schools teach Metric but the authorities still tend to give the imperial measurements along side, because of confused old people

  • vicky (Sep 14, 2018)

    I wanna sleep in a bed made of Cate Blanchett's voice.

  • Longhorn Fan Forever (Sep 16, 2018)

    I want to sleep with Cate Blanchett period.

  • diddyknux (Sep 14, 2018)

    I'd learn Metric if Hela ordered me to.

  • Nevermore  (Sep 14, 2018)

    You heard it from Galadriel, fairest and wisest of Middle-Earth.

  • Spicer Cook (Sep 14, 2018)

    Metric is way better than the old British Imperial system. I'm Canadian thank God we use Metric.

    Here in Australia farmers still use acres. Officially, everything is in hectares, real estate agents and media will only use hectares. But farmers still talk in acres, even young farmers. When I was a kid I remember on food labels they used to have calories in brackets after kilojoules, but nowdays you only see energy in kilojoules. As for everything else imperial; completely absent here. I only know my height in cms and weight in kgs, I have no clue what a foot or pound is. I guess I know what an inch...
