Last I checked we get soda in litres.
@Mag3rPayne, it’s liters you British spy
@theduuuude, wanna fight about it in the theatre!
@Mag3rPayne, *slyly begins loading musket*
@theduuuude, yeah, I'd like a liter of cola.
@Sr5turbo, just order a large farva
@Mag3rPayne, you mean the theatre in the centre of the township where we buy our litres of soda?
@Mag3rPayne, only because selling soda by the gallon is a little excessive
@lemongrenade, we sell tea and milk in half gallons or quarts, why not soda?
@Mag3rPayne, because those British bastards at Coca Cola are poisoning us! They started off killing us fast with the cocaine but now they’re playing the long game!
...well played Britain...well played.
Murica! 💥 🇺🇸 💥
@Natural Sarcasm , *Murica! 🇺🇸
@Natural Sarcasm , F*CK YEAH
Haha tighter tolerances where it matters
In high-school, someone became convinced that I did and sold drugs, solely because I knew the Metric system. And not like because I could go "oh that's 202 grams", though I could. It's because I could convert miles to kilometers, feet to meters, and back, all in my head. Their sole reasoning was "only drug dealers know how to use metric". I did not go to the best of schools...
@thrawnfett, trust me. drug users are pretty familiar with the metric system as well
2 liters of soda
@Sluggernot, I don't want a large farva. I want a liter of cola.
And illicit drugs
And all legal drugs!
When I brew beer at home I use both metric and imperial systems.
Guns, cars, and soda
SORRY TO BE THIS GUY but not technically true - American ammunition is measured in caliber, or percentages of an inch. Only European ammo is measured in metric.
We want to make sure the enemy knows what we shot them with
We use both actually. Cause it can get confusing.
Metric measures it as (millimeter x millimeter). Imperial measures it as the diameter in inches (.xxx) and usually a second name (like Special, Short, British, Magnum) to denote the TYPE of bullet of that diameter. We do this because when we refer to a 9mm, we usually mean 9x19mm Parabellum. However a .38 Special is ALSO a 9mm (9x29 mmR or rimmed millimeter).
Not to mention you can have a blend of the two: 9mm Makarov is a 9mm, but it is 9x17mm instead of 9x19mm. Thus you cannot fire a 9mm Makarov from a gun chambered for 9mm Parabellum or vice versa.
But then that gets even more confusing cause you CAN shoot a .223 Remington from a 5.56x45mm barrel, but not vice versa.
In conclusion, it's confusing af, but generally, commonly-used military rounds will be metric (5.56, 7.62, 9mm, etc.) and those invented for civilian/law enforcement will be in Imperial (.40 S&W .45 Auto, .38 Special, .357 Magnum).
USA USA USA
We actually don't even use it for that. Just certain calibers (9mm and 10mm most obvious) are better known by their metric number. .45, .40, .380, are all inches.
