    Cate Blanchett Thinks Americans Should Use the Metric System

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

  • 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.

  • Ret Marut (Oct 19, 2018)

    Thing is, the SI-system is a whole set of variables describing every field of science. One degree centigrade is the 100th part of the difference between water melting and boiling. Kelvin is just the same with a different point of zero (to be precise it's the other way around, but don't be nitpicky). Fahrenheit is just a scale some dude thought up how he felt.The real deal is, as it is implemented in the SI system you can calculate with Kelvin (or Celsius for that matter) and don't need conversion fact...

  • 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...

    +Kai Keeper pineapple on pizza is delicious. I never understand the gripes with that.

  • Kai Keeper (Mar 13, 2019)

    I'd like to add one: 4. Execute all who put pineapples on pizza.

  • Douglas J (Sep 14, 2018)

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

    +The Giant Killers ah I see.

  • The Giant Killers (Mar 13, 2019)

    +That Guy Used to when I was a kid and we had a milkman. These days, in Northern Ireland at least, it's half litre, litre, two litre and three litre cartons.

  • 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_*

  • foxeh123 (6 days ago)

    +Graham Thornton Then use Kelvin. It's even more precise. Celsius is good enough for our temp. We don't need super precise numbers.

  • Metal is forever (Mar 10, 2019)

    You know that Fahrenheit was a German, but you will almost find no German that can handle the Fahrheit scale.

  • temporarysanity (Oct 17, 2018)

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

  • SAM SAM (Sep 14, 2018)

    Jimmy “ We elected Donald Trump do you think we going to switch to metric system” 🤣🤣🤣

  • Musik Angel (Feb 4, 2019)

    +Bake749 But he gives the best material!

  • Bake749 (Feb 4, 2019)

    These random Trump jokes are really getting dumber and dumber. Make up something original.

  • 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

  • 无神论 者 (Sep 14, 2018)

    Going 300 k/h is way cooler than 180 m/h

  • loxymandles (Dec 27, 2018)

    It's actually km/h

  • Michael Davis (Nov 9, 2018)

    +Sergiu Cătălin Coprean No it isn't xD

  • vicky (Sep 14, 2018)

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

  • Longhorn Fan Forever (Sep 16, 2018)

  • Cristiana Pereira (Sep 16, 2018)

    3:10 Funny thing is... the americans who did send men/women to the moon, actually DID use the metric system :D NASA and every other scientist uses the metric system.

  • Michael Davis (Dec 18, 2018)

    No they didn't. The Moon landing was in 1969, About two decades before NASA started using Metric, which was in 1990 btw. There is evidence videos online I can send you proof if you want, You hear in the video Neil Armstrong counting down the distance to landing on the surface of the moon in Feet e.g. "40 Feet.... 30 Feet" were some of his quotes. Look it up and educate yourself :D

  • Michael Davis (Nov 14, 2018)

    Not in 1969, Look it up, When they were landing on the surface of the moon, they were counting down in feet, "40 feet, 30 feet" etc.
