And now we're spoiling oil in the land we forced them into. All the more reason for me to be thankful as a white person! (I hope nobody takes my cynicism as a genuine opinion lol)

Thanksgiving? You're French what do you have to be thankful for? The metric system and affordable healthcare?

I just like being able to say I'm 161cm because it's a larger number than my imperial height lol.

When ships or aircraft measure fuel they typically use pounds, instead of gallons.

Speaking or aircraft, we do measure flying altitudes in feets...I have no idea why we do
Because flying involves many amazing feats of innovation!

I like Kelvin because the concept of a negative temperature makes no sense to me. although it would be annoying to have to set my furnace to 295 Kelvin.

Fahrenheit has the advantage that you can just say "oh the weather today is in the 60s" but if you say "oh the weather today is in the 20s" with Celcius, 20 is quite different from 29.

Silly people, talk in Celsius if you wanna be understood!
100 degrees F = 37 C. It was that hot when I was in France actually. It sucked, France is in the north what business does it have being that hot?

It's like, there is an argument to be made for the imperial system. Like, the metric system of heat is between 0 (freezing) and 100 (boiling). But the imperial system has the range of temperatures outside, from the coldest it'd be in a normal place, 0, to the hottest it'd be, 100. So it's a nice even percentage. Distance we have feet - the length of a foot, and yards - the length of a stride. A meter is similar, but centimeter? What practical use does that have? Volume, cups are about how much a person can drink in one sitting, gallon how much water they should drink in a day. Liter? Too much for a sitting, and too little for a day.

Unfortunately, the defenders of the imperial system are few and far between.
People criticize Fahrenheit for being arbitrary, but Celsius is just as arbitrary, to choose water as the benchmark. Plus  Celsius was a nutjob, the scale he created had 0 as the boiling point and 100 as the freezing point, it got modified after his death.

But I can't defend the rest of what you said. I'm 161 cm, how is that any different from saying I'm 63.5"? You can also fairly easily convert cm to m. but, you have to divide inches by 12 to convert to feet. Or maybe your'e measure something that needs yards. then you're dividing by 36.There are 1000m in a km, but how the heck many yards are in a mile? I have no clue. Gallons have 4 quarters, quarts have 2 pints, pints I think have 2 cups? or 4? then how many fl oz? Our system is completely moronic.

It's bad enough when SF is 100 and that hardly ever happens lol. Well happens a lot more often lately people tell me. Weird coincidence that's totally not climate change.
