    Fun fact: the United States is already on the SI Units (aka the metric system). It's how the US customary units (imperial) are defined. So the American pound for example, is defined as 0.45359237 kilograms.

    When I became a Nurse, I had to learn metric weights and measures, our fluids were ml/liters, weights kg, distance mm/cm. So we knew 2.54cm/inch, 2.2lbs/kg and so on. We use both in America, but I think Imperial.

    No, just no. Having to list the size of my junk on Grindr as 20.32 cm is tedious.

    They're talking about using one or the other system, while here in the Philippines we study both (but we use metric tho) we also study how to convert it, damn. 💀😭

    I like the fact that the USA don't use the metric system. It's so much fun to confuse them with centigrade, meters and kilos. it's like speaking a foreign language to them. You can see the little hamster fall down in the wheel of their brains. They say "Don't you use Fahrenheit?" And I say "No. No F**ker does". i feel bad taking the piss out of Belizeans, Liberians and Burmese.

    Changing the metric system would also cost billions of dollars. Changing the numerical quantity of literally everything in our daily lives. Especially when law is involved

    For Jimmy and anybody else who wondered, Lower and Upper six are the entry qualifications for University. If you've watched or read Harry Potter, its the NEWTS and comes after OWLS.
