    I’m an american and I wish we would switch to the metric system. Makes much more sense! It’s embarrassing we are still using the imperial system.

  9. sexntuna says:

    How can one woman have SO many good qualities?!!

  17. Maple Bacon says:

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

  18. stephen says:

    I will never understand why America won’t switch to the metric system. It’s so much more easy

    • Tanny Ocean says:

      Raider Of The Lost Fart easier to measure by eyes? so why did you american get cheated by subway back when they serve sandwiches that were less than a foot long? measuring things by eyes will develop once you use the system long enough, regardless what system. in metric system, one meter is about from the tip of one arm to the other arm if you hold both arms up to shoulder height. things like that

    • Semiramis Bonaparte says:

      dont worry about it

    • Anna line says:

      It cost money

    • lena says:

      money is a major problem tho. Imagine how much it would cost to replace every gas pump and road sign in America to the right units. also, the older generations are more likely going to continue to use the imperial system in their everyday lives because that’s what they grew up on. β€œGo get be a gallon of milk” is what they’re going to say, not β€œgo get me 5 liters of milk” lol. honestly, it’s a money and cultural thing. It almost happened at one point, but you know you can’t teach an old dog new tricks πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ not using this to bash the metric system btw. tbh the metric system makes much more sense
