I have the same question when it comes to the system we use for measurements.  It would just be so much easier to use the metric system like the rest of the world.  Whenever someone tells me a measurement in centimeters, I always have to grab a ruler.  ^^;

i don't get our system either. we just need to know our conversions the way you do. (the metric system seems a lot easier though.) \

 

It's easier for me to understand farenheight than the math system. I think we did this mostly to seperate ourselves as much as possible, but ended up confusing other countries and making a rocket dart.

 

also, it's shopping hunger game's eve. get it right.

At least they do Science right. Measurement of length in standard units is meters, temperature is Celsius, and mass is kilograms.

@fafnir I think rephrasing that would save you a bit of trouble in the near future. 

Not every american is stupid, if that’s your intention (though I somewhat doubt it) 

 

also, if you mean the Fahrenheit/imperial measurement thing is stupid and is more effort than it’s worth, then I can agree. (Then again, us sambers made an entire measurement scale based on candy)

 

This also proves I can’t take a joke .,.

@Fafnir: Excuse me, being born and raised in America, and having multiple veterans in my family, I take offense to that. America is many things, but it's not stupid. The world today would not be the same without it. And before you say it would be better, may I remind you that Americans are the ones who invented telephones, smoke alarms, zippers, mufflers, candy corn, the airplane, electric traffic lights, road surface marking, the cheeseburger, the electric guitar, the Richter magnitude scale, the microwave, and many other things the world might not have without us.

@Fafnir Well, what you just said could really insult some people, especially those who are Americans or have family who are loyal Americans. I guess all we can really say from another point of view is what we think personally, not the truth. I mean, I'm not going to say America's that great, but every country has room for improvement, and it has its impacts on what the world is today now.

 

In some weird way, for me, opinion about this is like religion. We can't really see the truth of it from the past, the present, or in the future. There's really no definite "right" or "wrong", or "good" and "bad". It's always some combination, or some point on the continuum. It's never really able to be determined, nonetheless correctly determined.

 

Sorry for seemingly making a speech again; this just really reminded me of this YouTube video I saw threatening to nuke China. Below in the comments section was a lot of threats and biased views about how China was the villain in everything, and everything that's wrong about China. But China has its rights and wrongs, and "goods" and "bads" as well. It's just that some people, such as those in the comments section, neglected to recognize that. I think it's the same for America in this case, and I hope everyone can hold as much of an open view as they can.

 

Thanks for being so open and sharing your opinion with us! I keep forgetting to summon you for this, Fafnir, but you're straightforward and honest, and I find those traits admirable and amazing.

i'm just noting here that i made this post to say that as a canadian, i find america confusing because of the small cultural shifts. i mean no offense and would like to request that the conflict be moved out of my thread or be resolved.

(I'm sorry if my post insults anyone, as I would also like to point out I meant no offense. Also, I don't believe it's a conflict. @Starlight xD "Conflict" is defined as: "a serious disagreement or argument, typically a protracted one." Since this isn't serious, and disagreeing is fairly normal, I would just like to conclude, it's just us taking this discussion to another way of thinking. :)

^ I can do math and I have good grammar, so I'm fine with her assuming I can do that XD

 

Now to do math and ignore my math teacher telling me not to do math tonight. Hehehe.

Most of the time in math class anymore we just use centimeters because using inches is too time consuming. I'm used to Fahrenheit, though. If you told me it was 30° Celsius I would be nothing but confused. There are ups and downs.

I think Fafnir meant that America, as a whole, is stupid, and with all these smear ads coming around for Election Day, I can’t blame him.

If we get back onto the original subject without arguing about pointless things that are going to have no impact - 

 

I didn't know you guys had Halloween and Thanksgiving in the same month. That's interesting.
