America going to metric units!!!

Post by TheMissingSock on Sun Jun 05, 2011 3:31 pm

Do ya think that the usa should start using the metrics system like everywhere else? I think we should, idk how the hell to convert in american units because they are so difficult, but easy peasey brain freezy, I can do metric units in a flash!!! I think that we should! Start teaching kids now about it and have signs that tell both the units in america and everywhere else! What do you guys think?

But wouldn't learning it and simply being able to take a few minutes to move the decimal on a number to convert be SO much easier then googling the american unit everytime you have a question? And what if there isn't a comp nearby?

We might as well... everythings made out of the country. America just has to be different and have it's own unit.

meteric was made to be easyer to work with saves learning the 12 times table for a start
