I'm too afraid to use the metric system, no matter how inefficient the Imperial system is.
First thing, you start measuring football fields in meters, next thing you know you're reading the Communist Manifesto and spouting Lenin like a good little commie droid.
Land of the free, home of the brave, I don't give a f*ck.
@PoliticsSniper, that does not even begin to make sense.
It's funny because blind patriotism doesn't make sense...
It's a lot better if I don't have to explain the joke...
@PoliticsSniper, sorry. My naff for thinking jokes needed to be funny. Your nation is about the only one without metric. Your like that slightly special needs cousin that we invite to things because we feel bad and we know we will get a few laughs.
@TheMonkeyGod, America is not the only one, Myanmar (formerly Burma) and Liberia don't use the metric system :P
Oh and... *you're
@Chad K, I'll type slower if that helps you. I did note "about the only" not the actual only. Oh and it's the United States of America wore we are correcting folk. America is the continent.
@TheMonkeyGod, Okay. If your from Britain we kicked your ass before. If your from the middle east we're kicking your ass right now. If your from anywhere else in the world we WILL kick your ass. So I doubt you want to be asskicked by "A kid with autism"
@Username Changed, you ever stacked up against an autistic kid? They will mess you up. And I'm not from Britain, nor the middle east... And given the US education system I have no fear because you guys couldn't find me on a map... I'm in the area marked "here be dragons"
@TheMonkeyGod, Are those facts? No? Even if they were america has such a huge population so even if the percentage of "dumb" people add up there are shjt tons of non stupid,athletic, strong willed, patriotic, put a boot in your ass Americans that will. Also the reason we use the Imperial system is because land of the free motherfvcker.
@Username Changed, land of the freeeeeeee. With done if the most oppressive laws, most spied on and most over policed.... freeeeeeee. Ah the tears. Nah you guys are alright.
@TheMonkeyGod, Okay well you implied that we aren't educated, well who was the first and only country to use nuclear warfare?
@Username Changed, doing so against the instructions of the actual inventor of the technology. Oh and the dudes behind the tech were Germans... Who use metric... Also other nations had the tech, none of them wanted to use it given the horrendous after effects. So like i said autistic folk will mess you up.
@TheMonkeyGod, I sea salt
@Username Changed, and the Germans also invented jet propulsion. True.
@Chad K, i love the folk from the USA. The are the wind between my cheeks :)
@TheMonkeyGod, I don't see why you noted that they use metric because we use metric partially. We use millimeters, centimeters, and nanometers. And unrelated since we have been debating america would you think that your talking to someone from Alabama (because I would like to delete country stereotypes lol)
@Username Changed, i never mentioned Alabama... i would have made an incest joke if i had. Seriously though, i like you guys. Take yourselves so serious. Do your whole chest beating. It's great.
@TheMonkeyGod, yes I know you didn't but I hate when people know I'm from Alabama and instantly think I'm inbred and stuff. I was just asking if I sounded like "Une dem bama hiks" or if you could've never know I'm from Alabama lol
@Username Changed, you know i heard that sandwiches were the state food in Alabama... something to do with loving things in bread :D
@Username Changed, yeah i thought so
@TheMonkeyGod, there are countries that use the metric system and countries that have been to the moon. While I agree most Americans couldn't find you on a map (I'm an American and peoples total ignorance of global geography astounds me) I'm sure many in your country lack geographical knowledge as well. Realistically the U.S. Invites you to thinks. And please ignore username changed. He's being pointlessly and embarrassingly belligerent
@Username Changed, it makes me a little sad that of all the achievements the United States has accomplished the one you cite is that we used nuclear warfare. What about the Panama Canal? Or the interstate system? Why are all your comments about wars? America is so much more than that
@Lord Commander Snow, NASA, all branches of the US Armed Forced and the US Government in general all use the Metric System. So while the public in the great USofA uses Imp, they got to the he moon using Metric.
@Couch Ornament, I know I just like that joke
@TheMonkeyGod, Oh I see. You aren't joking.
Wow, ok, f*ck you too then. I was just telling a joke.
I mean Jesus, what did an American f*ck your sister or something?
Funny how people say Americans come in starting sh*t when you just swung your foot straight into your mouth.
And really? The "most spied on and most over-policed"? I'll take North Korea for $500 Alex. Or China. Or Ukraine.
Pray tell, what "glorious" country do you hail from then?
@Lord Commander Snow, No worries though, just another jealous foreigner who probably lives in some shjthole and wants to blame another country's success for their own failures.
@PoliticsSniper, clearly it's not the home of the brave if you're "too afraid"
*drops mic, explosions galore while looking like a bad ass*
@TheMonkeyGod, spain! The very edge. I just learned this in class today. End of the extra part of the St. James pilgrimage, unless my teacher was lying to me.
@TheMonkeyGod, I'm just going on a down vote road trip today!
@Dr House, God bless America. You guys are so thin skinned.
@TheMonkeyGod, who said I was from America?
@TheMonkeyGod, you should look 2 pictures to the right
@PoliticsSniper, quit feeding the troll, it's not worth it
It's because those who mess with America will get a 12 inch foot in their ass.
@Sir Bionic, *Red Foreman* "We reject your spelling, but you won't be able to reject my foot in your ass"
@Sir Bionic, "We reject your accent, but you'll never reject my 12 inches!"
@Sir Bionic, you do realize that is pretty much the reason the world hates you.
@Sir Bionic, Boooo! PAB
@Sir Bionic, #bestcomments
@Sir Bionic, as told by the legendary Toby Keith
Well, you know, it's expensive to change the street signs..... and stuff......
@SgtKal, this is actually the reason for not switching over... it would be terribly expensive
Well shït, man. Have you ever seen his foot...it's a damñ fine foot.
I mean like your almost the only nation left with Imperial measure and the rest of the world isn't communist... Maybe a little bit socialist... But that's okay. On the... Have you got some spare change?
The imperial system, or more accurately, the dozenal (Base 12) mathematic system allows for measurements, fractions, and decimals to be easier to work with, and contains less irrational numbers and repeating decimals. Why the fvck wouldn't we use it?
@Grybo101, its not base 12... just the foot has 12 inches... how many feet in a yard? 12? How many ounces in a pound? 12?
@Converthis, I know I should have worded my comment differently. Sorry about that. My argument was strictly for the dozenal system, and I meant to mention imperial solely as an example of how a system based on the number 12 helps in measurements.
There are two kinds of countries in the world. Those that use the metric system, and those that have been to the moon.
I thought the bottom text was going to be "And I substitute my own"! :P
I want to switch to metric I've been trying to learn so calm down allright
Metric is way better, but it would just be a hassle to switch everything in the U.S. Although, conversions in metric are really fun. They go Kilo Hecti Decca Unit Decci Centi Milli. You just move the decimal as you go from one to the other.This can be remembered with King Henry Died Unexpectedly Drinking Chocolate Milk. Kind of ironic.
We reject your laws and taxes and substitute our own
