4.5m surge, 50-75cm rain 225 km/hr wind.
@Chicken0War, As someone from Mars I still don't understand can you change it to micro meters, nano meters, cm/year?
@Chicken0War, one moderately impressive cheerleader pyramid sized water surge, knee deep rain give or take a hand, and wind about the speed of a rock thrown foreword while driving at the speed limit on a freeway
Translation: A bit of water and a doozy of a breeze.
@Devils Avocado, Translation to British: a wishy washy splish splosh, and a gusty blustery suck-n-blow (translators note: this is not to be confused with "lusty busty suck-n-blow" which is a term for your mother).
The only reason I like the Imperial system is how the measurements were thought of. Inches are lengths between finger joints and feet are the size of your feet. Very rough, I know, but it does help for small measurements.
I have no idea how we came up with miles.
As far as Fahrenheit goes, I like how precise it is compared to Celsius, but memorizing the boiling point of water is kind of annoying. If America adopted the metric system and kept Fahrenheit, I wouldn't mind.
But realistically, we should just switch over to Celsius of everybody else is using it.
@OrphanCrippler44, I read and article about this yesterday. In Roman time, a mile was "a thousand paces," which was about 5000 feet. But in 1592, parliament decided that a mile was 8 furlongs, with a furlong being the length that a team of oxen could plow in a day. I don't know why they went with 8.
In Scotland this is called a Wednesday.
An european. That spelling bothers me
@Awesome Naked Taco, as it should.
Only commies can't read Freedom Units
No. The real problem is your "cup" measurement. It's the most useless measurement I've heard of. What is a cup of diced onions? Is it as many diced onions as you can cram into a cup or is it how many onions can fit loosely? What about a cup of cookies? That's like two cookies, unless you crush them in which case yoy can fit 4 cookies but if you powder them you can cram 6 cookies into the cup since there i no air between them. Just use grams you uncultured swine.
@Awesome Naked Taco, measuring a cup of something is nowhere near as difficult as you make it. You just scoop it and done
@Awesome Naked Taco, yeah.. a cup really isn't hard to understand. Just google it and one picture of the measurement will make perfect sense to you. Unless you are some uncultured swine.
@Richard Cypher, If you're a perfectionist to an OCD-like degree like me it does. Spoon measurements I can barely grasp, but scooping 1 cup without a 1 cup measurer is really hard. Depending on the container you scoop with, you get different results. Say you had perfect 1x1 cm cubes, you stuff them into a cup measurer and based on the way they landed you might get anywhere from 20-25 cubes. With grams you simply can't make a mistake. You can't do 200grams with a top or 200ml with a top because those a really exact and precise measurements. A tbsp however you can mess up, some do it with a top, some removes whatever is left on top with their finger. With the metric system being the official measuring system of USA it bother me why it's never used. Also, since the English language is international you never know what cup/mile is used. There are many types of cups and miles, but you can't mistake meters, grams and liters. They also fit perfectly with our current world-wide numerical
@Richard Cypher, system, the 10-numbersystem (Don't know how that translates to English), which makes it even more understandable. It's reasonable and logical. Not to get into the whole pounds=lbs for some reason situation.
@The Last King, trust me, whenever I bake/cook I spend half the times converting that sit and it's so darn difficult. Sorry for the long post, pls don't dislike because you disagree
Me: as a member of the rest of the world*
Just use google like the rest of us, if i see meters somewhere bet i look it up in feet
Two measuring unit systems create lot of confusion and errors, so it kinda helps create more work. Don't you dare to conform!
Sorry our country is one of the two countries that refused to go metric for some stupid reason
Central Florida: we had some tree branches on the ground and our power went out from Sunday at 11:40pm-5pm the next day. No flooding around my city.
Any one else in the world
