Yeah..... miss me with that metric temperature. I like my bolts, fasteners, small parts, spec tollerances, technical information, and tools metric. My soda metric. Gas, milk, distances other than as used for fabrication or construction standard. Tell me you're 2.5 meters tall sounding like a hobbit even though you look like an NBA forward, nah homie. Nah. And a liter of gas? Wtf am I gonna do with a liter of gas? Start my lawn mower? That's just enough to drive to the next pump and get a damn gallon. If there isn't a syringe or a measuring cup present I don't need to hear about milliliters either. Outside science lab, the kitchen, or the doctor when will I need a ML? So metric is less thinking, less math, but it's not a common concept in most things and would require a lot of effort to switch over.

kamatsu· 2 years agoAlso, centimetres kind of are the in-between; SI units tend to get prefixes every third factor of ten, e.g. millilitre, litre, kilolitre.

scatmandingo· 2 years agoThe way I was taught measurement everything centered around foot. 12 inches to a foot, 3 feet to a yard, 5280 feet in a mile. Without doing the math I don’t know how many yards in a mile.

A clear understanding of what the metric equivalent of a foot is would probably be very helpful for those who didn’t learn metric as a child to have a concept.

Same thing with pounds for weight. I don’t know the conversion rate of pounds to euros, how many euros in a stone and how many stones it takes to make a henge.

On that note, how many degrees is a circle in Celsius?

It’s very confusing when you didn’t grow up with it.

0F is really cold to 100F which is really hot but both are easily survivable. Just not all that comfortable.
