I hope this helps.
I wish the states would go to the metric system. 1/8 is in between 7/64 and 9/64. Craziness trying to order the appropriate thickness of steel.

I really donít know why you donít have it besides stubbornness and America is the best! Attitude.

0 degrees is here where water starts to freeze.

100 where water boils.

How is this not better?

10 mm is 1 cm. 100 cm is 1 meter.
1000 m is one kilometer.

How is this not better? And way easier?

acknowledging together the absurdity of smooshing two human bodies around is great and so is humiliating your partner like the desperate fucktoy cuck he is with a well placed, strategic giggle. laughter is easy and fun!!!

Those aren't the right arguments for the average American. Most don't know and don't care about how 3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon, 2 tablespoons = 1 ounce, 8 ounces = 1 cup.

They are the same people who complain about learning any subject past fifth grade because "when am I ever going to use it?" They won't use any of those learnings because they are dumb. They either don't care or don't know how stupid they sound oftentimes.

I wonder if Americans are better at using fractions?

Because I took up quilting a few years ago and as that is a very American craft most of the patterns are in inches and I basically had to refresh my basic math skills to figure out how to add quarter inch seams to 5/8 of pattern and I havenít had to do that in so long.
Itís still deeply illogical to me why you want to do a weirdo measuring system like that but I got it figured out now.

Only those who do craftwork like sewing, woodworking, metalwork, etc. It does make it easier to halve or quarter a recipe.

Within those craft circles, I find a number of younger people would be willing to switch to metric expect for as you stated so much already comes in American units. Although serious bakers are moving towards metric because it is easier to meaure in grams than ounces.
