I agree that we won’t switch just like that, but maybe if it’s gradual. Idea: Make it law for all labels, road signs, and weather reports to include Metric as well as Imperial measurements. Also law to teach it in school along with Imperial. Keep it that way for 50 years or so, then finally introduce a bill to officially switch the US over to Metric. The younger generation should already be used to metric by then, so maybe they’ll cave!

People who talk so much about the metric system are basically virtue signaling how smart they are. It is not important if we know our height in centimeters or our weight in kilograms. It would cost a lot to change over and the daily use of most people isn’t very critical. People who need the system do use it.

inches are the master measurement the metric system is a jacobin plot for all the Napoleonic puppet states of Europe to be uniform and they were not proto-communists but actual communists like how the ussr was communist and had puppet states- and not the pseudo-intellectual definition where there is a future communism that will exist but never has before because it needs to follow original hypothesis perfectly with set phases of feudal societies developing commerce but the parasites make all the money a so the poor take over some how and then slowly turn into an egalitarian society somehow

Both systems are inherently arbitrary. Users of both systems don't have much trouble navigating within them. I once had a little factory where we used grams as the unit for small pieces and pounds/ounces for larger ones. The gram was a convenient small unit because we didn't need decimals. Pounds/ounces worked for larger pieces. As far as length, we could have used either. We went with english units (and went in 16th inch increments) instead of millimeters, but in fact either would have worked. Temperature we went with Fahrenheit because 300 degrees F was too round a number to mess with This business about the metric system being superior because it is based on 10s is nonsense because it doesn't take other things into account. If you go by 10s, you can divide into 10, 5 or 2. The pound is divisible into 16, 8,4 and 2. The foot - 12, 6, 4, 3, 2. Each system has its advantages. As far as arbitrary, both systems depend on a standard rod or brick in some vault somewhere. As far as time, the second has definition that boggles my mind.

Metric system is more detailed than the Imperial system and it's simple as f. My height is same as my American friend's height in Imperial system, but I'm actually slightly taller than my friend. That's why Americans should use the Metric system. It supposed to be same height but not exactly.

Americans keep the imperial system because they have a deep rooted desire to be a colony of Great Britain again. The entire system is based on the British Imperial system. That and the fact that America loves God and they believed that the metric system was atheist.
