>>11693665>Imagine crying and caring about which arbitrary system of measurement someone uses.
did I say I care? I said it was weird. It's like going to the zoo at laughing at monkeys.>Oh no if I go to America people say 5 6 instead 200 cm
actual kek, you can't even bother to convert properly to make your point>It only takes 3 seconds to get used to.
nope. I've lived here for 4 years, I still understand your moronic units in a very limited range. I also knew Americans who lived in Switzerland, they were completely oblivious to the metric system even after spending a whole decade there. It's a matter of intuition like learning a language.>Know what is a bigger inconvenience that actually matter europoors speaking their dying languages. When everyone speaks English. Kind of sad really.
Either you clearly have never been to any country in Europe or you think people responding to tourists in English or using it as a lingua franca is somehow an indicator of "dying languages".>all of these unit conversion which americans do in their head with ease are something metic country citizens require a calculator for.
I unironically had Americans asking me how many ounces there are in a pound, because I'm used to converting shit back to metric and they constantly use google. Most Americans won't even tell you the difference between an ounce and a fluid ounce.>dividing and multiplying by 12
I don't have a problem with a duodecimal system, except the US units are anything but base 12. It's 12 inches in a foot, sure. Why the fuck is it 16 ounces in a pound then? Do you know how many yards there are in a mile? Shit's all over the place.
