I live with the metric system but I believe the imperial has good uses when it comes to daily things outside of temperature. Height and Weight feel more "natural" using the imperial system. Outside of that, tbf metric is much better on about everything.

Fun fact: the United States is already on the SI Units (aka the metric system). It's how the US customary units (imperial) are defined. So the American pound for example, is defined as 0.45359237 kilograms.

When I became a Nurse, I had to learn metric weights and measures, our fluids were ml/liters, weights kg, distance mm/cm. So we knew 2.54cm/inch, 2.2lbs/kg and so on. We use both in America, but I think Imperial.

I like the fact that the USA don't use the metric system. It's so much fun to confuse them with centigrade, meters and kilos. it's like speaking a foreign language to them. You can see the little hamster fall down in the wheel of their brains. They say "Don't you use Fahrenheit?" And I say "No. No F**ker does". i feel bad taking the piss out of Belizeans, Liberians and Burmese.

In Britain both are used and to convert to and from metric is taught in schools, a persons height and weight is measured in feet, inches and stones and pounds. Speed is measured in mph, as is distance, however, for smaller lengths we use metres and cms. Petrol is purchased in litres but consumption is measured in gallons. Milk is purchased usually in pints but for example mineral water is in litre/ml bottles. Fruit and veg usually in kilos. When she says lower sixth, she means an institution called sixth form college, where you study a course called A-Levels, aged 16-18. Upper sixth is the last of the two year course before heading to university. Universities are seldom referred to as colleges in the UK.

I love America, but as an Aussie you guys have gotta get with the times lol. Water freezes as 0C, we aim to bench 100kg as a goal (225). You gotta throw out The Fahrenheit, pounds, yards, miles thing.... i only agree with imperial for height (im 6”2 so i prefer that to 188cm). Im just taking a light hearted jab, do your thing guys lol. Just learn to put brackets with conversion (F/C Pds/Kgs Mi/Km) when speaking with us non-USA English speaking peeps

What Imperial System? It does not exist. Do you think NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Washington) keeps a foot/pound sample? NO. They keep a reference for the METER, KILO, etc. The inch is *DEFINED* to be 2.54 cm, and everything else in a similar way. The Imperial System is defined as just a bunch of weird multiples of the SI (International system).
Salvatore Filippone
You have a sensible and reasoned argument, which sadly cannot be said about many other comments I have seen in the past whenever this subject comes up.
How Does it Really Work
You can switch to metric units, but a 12.7 mm bolt is still not a metric bolt. (The metric bolts are 12 mm, and the next size up is 14 mm diameter.) The same story with pipes, lumber, most of the machinery. The cost of scrapping and replacing everything that does not conform to the metric standards would be a sizable fraction of the net worth of the entire country -- and that is where much of the expense is, in truly switching to everything metric.

The only problem I remember when Australia went metric was the police asking people to lookout for a suspect height 183cm. At the time I had no idea.That's 6ft by the way. They should have used both for a few years.

Everytime I hear the excuse "it would be too complicated" or "it would cost too much"... the australians did fine, seems to me. Obviously you don't want to follow the half-ass attempt by the brits or the canadians, but look at your aussie colleagues.

For Americans who don't understand the English education, Lower Sixth is the first year of sixth form (year 12) and upper sixth is the second and last year's if sixth form (year 13). Sixth form comes from a system in which we called our secondary years first form, second form etc and it stuck around after we change our secondary school year from Year 7 to Year 13. Year 12 or lower Sixth is your 11th grade

In the UK we totally mix it up on an everyday basis. Road signs show miles- Kilometres make no sense to us at all. Although we understand pints and talk about them, containers are usually marked in litres. We all talk about and understand physical height in feet and inches, but medically it’s metres. Dimensions of objects are usually given in both imperial and metric simultaneously. Physical weight is medically kg but most people only know it in stones and lbs, we don’t get lbs without stones at all. Temperature is Celsius, but for some reason we quite often casually talk about the weather in Fahrenheit when it gets hot. I don’t think we’ve really taken metric on board at all, for all schools don’t even teach imperial anymore.
David of Yorkshire
Even the metric system is related to Donald Trump... These people are so fixated on one thing it's to the exclusion of all else. Poor, unstable, left-wing radicals... Can they have one discussion without mentioning or blaming him for something?

Pounds and inches are part of the "Imperial system", first defined in the British Weights and Measures Act of 1824. It's funny to hear a Briton complain about a system their country developed.

Cate Blanchett was born on Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Who invented the metric system? An English bishop, John Wilkins, (1614-1672) invented the system part of the decimal metric system when he published a book with a plan for a 'universal measure' in 1668
