    The imperial system is soul and I'm tired of pretending it's not. I'm gonna learn it and start using it IRL.

      Literally every single scientist who lived prior to the French Revolution (Leibniz, Newton, Boyle, Huygens, etc.) used inches, pounds, and hours. The customary system is what was used to specify the dimensions of the first rockets sent to the Moon.

          Well, imagine some moron "You can't do math without calculators" or "You can't make technical drafts without CAD software". Like mf, homies was doin shit by hand just fine fo hundreds o years without any o dat shit, and you can still do perfectly good shit without it.

            So your best argument against celsius is not about its merits as a temperature scale rather choose the most moronic argument that doesn't apply because those people were born before the invention of the scale?

            Just because people scraped by with other methods in the past, doesn't mean the newer system has no merits. Why use your car when you can walk everywhere?

        The VERY first rockets were literally German V2s, probably done in Metric.

          Yeah, and those rockets did not land on the Moon.

            Might be because they weren't made for that.
            I wanted to clarify: the very first rockets the US launched into space were literally German V2s.

            Well, I guess V-2s weren't that useful.

            >Why use your car when you can walk everywhere?
            I do both. I walk to places that are close to my house, and I use my car to go to places that are a bit further away from home.
            The best argument against Celsius is the fact that Celsius does not start at absolute zero, unlike Rankine and Kelvin. Also, computers make calculations on base-2 or base-16, not base-10, so any arguments about the supposed efficiency of decimal-based units is nullified by the fact that people still get rounding errors in the process of performing calculations. Ultimately, it does not matter if you measure force in pounds or Newtons, length in yards or meters, or temperature in Celsius, Fahrenheit, or Kelvin, since any non-moron should be capable of converting between any system of measurement. If you get filtered by something as simple as converting between feet and miles, then I sure as hell wouldn't be hiring you to build a dam.

          V2s were not the first rockets, moron. Goddard was an American who used imperial.

    fyi europeans, we use Fahrenheit because 0 to 100 is ROUGHLY the range of temperatures you experience in a normal year of weather. Its premise is actually quite sensible.

    Know this so you don't get BTFO by a dumb american when he overhears you smugly disparaging Fahrenheit.

      you use fahrenheit because you are too stupid to change your units
      everyone else uses celsius because it is the superior agreed upon global system of measurement

        No, it's because French people forced you to use them. If you actually wanted to be more in line with science, you'd use Rankine or Kelvin, not Celsius, which doesn't even start at zero.

      Metric is like a megacity full of commieblocks where people stand in line for government-issued bread. Imperial is like a small village with small mom-and-pop shops where everyone knows your name.
