Okay, people. Really. How do you feel about this? Do you really think that the [stupid] system used in the United States of America is okay? How many inches in a foot? How many feet in a yard? How many yards in a mile? How many inches in a mile? And let's not even TALK about the fact that measurements less than an inch are just eighths or sixteenths of an inch! How many quarts in a gallon? How many pints in a gallon? How many cups in a pint? How many fluid ounces in a cup?
It's ridiculous, people. And you know what? Going metric isn't that hard. Just do it. Embrace the simplicity.
Today I had to figure out the size ratio of a 4'x4' square to a 8.5"x5.5" rectangle and a 6"x3.5" rectangle. And my head nearly exploded trying to figure out how I would possibly do it. And then Google SAVED MY LIFE (except for the fact that I could possibly have billed hourly for the time it took me to do all that math myself...) when I realized that I could just Google "4 feet in cm" etc. for all my measurements to put it all into a system that actually makes sense and is based on the same units of measurement, instead of a stinking pile of made up garbage.
Speaking of a stinking pile of made up garbage, Fahrenheit also sucks. I mean, come on. Don't you want to use a system where 0 is freezing and 100 is boiling? What's this crap about saying "it's below freezing" when you're referring to 10 degrees? It hardly makes any sense. In Celsius, if it's a negative number, it's below freezing. So simple.
Why must it be so unnecessarily complicated?
