Not to be an ass, but it's the International measuring system, and you live in one of the 3 countries not using it.

That said, I really hope they do a better editing job than last year...

I thought it was only two countries?!? The states and a 3rd world country (Burma)...

Yep, not sure why the states still hang onto a dead system that's clearly inferior!

Which started with an American getting uppity and making fun of our weird system up here eh?!?

Don't worry, we'll never talk too much shit about you, we all know you could bomb us into oblivion!

Here's my wholly unscientific and semi-educated opinion on Canadian/US units of measure.
  • Metric is best for units of liquid measure
  • Miles/Kilometers is a wash. Whatever you're used to will feel best
  • Fahrenheit is better for accurate temperatures for daily living
  • Metric is best for weight. Even Americans use metric in healthcare for weight/liquids to calculate dosing and whatnot. Old school doctors still write in ounces but we just automatically convert it to grams/milliliters.

Let's just come together and bash the Brits for their usage of "stone". What's THAT shit all about?

Well, if you need any kind of accuracy ob a daily basis, you can use decimals in your mesaurement. Having the temperature rounded to the next Celcius degree in good enough for me.

And you'll have to agree that having water freezing at 0 and boiling at 100 makes more sense than 32 and 212...

I'll have to admit that we frequently use feet and inches in measurement though.

Yeah, not sure I've heard any Canadians use centimeters for height. I'm sure some/a lot do but I've never heard it.

I admit, for bare bones simplicity Celsius is good.

0 = cold(ish)
10 = chilly
20 = room temp
30 = hot
40 = are you effing kidding me right now?

But I can feel the difference between 72 and 74 so those detailed numbers mean more to me. Plus we all use Fahrenheit for cooking to dial in the right temp.
