Metric system?

I thought Americans were masochists in that sort of way.

I rarely use metric. As a carpenter, most of our stuff we do is in square feet. Trying to compensate for square metres would cost us and be a complete pain in the arse trying to fix stuff.

Not to mention our highways our measured in miles, our cars Odo's are using miles, we buy our gas by the gallon, and most importantly our milk comes in quarts and gallons.

Don't **** with my milk bro. You'll start a civil war, just like your stupid tea did.

Silly Americans. The only metric ones we use are for liquids and temperature.

Why do Americans think us Brits use metric? The only people who use metric in the UK are school children.

Then why are the Brits always bitching at us Americans to switch over to metric? It's not like we don't use metric for some things (like Chemistry and any other hard science).

They do on the mainland. Bitches be using km/h like anyone understands it.

Keep in mind that these are the fuckers that use commas instead of periods in their currency.

Australia does, the only thing I use imperial for is measuring peoples height.
And everyone should use celsius because water freezes at zero and boils at 100, it just makes sense, everything about metric makes sense, none of this chains to a furlong crapola that america's got.

Why does that make any more sense than a scale where water freezes at 32, boils at 212, but 0 degrees is fucking cold and 100 degrees is fucking hot?

If you're really going to make that argument, then wtf don't we all just start using the Kelvin temperature scale? I mean, really...0K = absolute zero and 273K = Freezing & 373K = boiling point. Why not, huh?!

Nope, I only use imperial when talking to old people who don't understand logic.
