Wouldn't it be m instead of cm for base SI units?
@Pope Temporal, yep
@Pope Temporal, and no C either
@Pope Temporal, and also g instead of kg
@satan of the north, actually, kg is the base SI unit for mass. It's weird, but I guess grams were too small to be consistent
@Pope Temporal, gram would still be the base unit but kg would be the standard unit
@Pope Temporal, my guess is that m for meters would be confused as miles, so they did centimetres.
@Pope Temporal, YES, YES IT WOULD!
I find myself using the metric system quite often when I’m designing or building. It just makes sense.
@Reptile Dysfunction, Finding an 8th of a cm is a hell of a lot easier than finding that of an inch
I like SI units for most things, but air temperature still makes more sense in Fahrenheit.
@WifitheRouter, Celcius is good for measuring purposes, but Fahrenheit is good for describing how cold or hot we feel
@K1l, that's cause we (i'm assuming you live in US) grew up with Fahrenheit and learned it. If we used Celsius from birth, we'd know what the temps felt like and be comfortable using them to describe every day temps
@Pope Temporal, I mean it’s on a 1-100 scale. One being the coldest you’ve ever felt, 100 being the hottest. Ya know?
@K1l, no that's Kelvin. In Celsius, 0 is the freezing point of water and 100 is the boiling point of water.
Farenheit is better than celsius, fúck you.
@M0RT0S, only for baking and NOTHING ELSE! Celsius (excluding baking) FOREVER
@Baby Cthulhu, 0 in Fahrenheit = really cold. 100 in Fahrenheit = really hot
0 in Celsius = chilly. 100 in Celsius = dead. I fail to see how that’s better
@RepostSniper, 0 water freezes, 100 water boils
@Baby Cthulhu, I’m well aware of that. Again, how is that more useful?
@RepostSniper, it makes working with units of temperature far easier, and if you do need to convert to K, you simply add 273 to the degrees C instead of using different conversion formulas like Fahrenheit. It’s more practical in science, which allows for easier, and faster work.
Personally I prefer feeling the one degree difference between 20 and 21 degrees. Basically it’s a much more efficient unit of temperature when working with any sort of math.
But baking is still Fahrenheit’s domain I will never deny that
@Baby Cthulhu, I’ll agree with you on C and K being the standard for science, but I think most people do a lot more checking the weather than checking melting and boiling points of fluids, and I stand by my statement that Fahrenheit’s 0-100 scale for telling outdoor temperature is vastly superior.
Inch, pound, gallon, fahrenheit.
Celsius is a moronic measurement for weather as it has 0 correlation with human beings, while Fahrenheit is based around them. It makes perfect sense for science and I'd even accept it for cooking, but for human-habitable ranges it can f--k right off
We use G and L (and their subunits) a lot in America tho. sure, not as much as Euros, but still.
Them fighting words
Inches is used to measure dicks. And measuring dicks is used to determine who runs the world.
I just use the banana for scale system
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, most Americans are familiar with both. When your country becomes the leader of the free world, you can have your own measurement system too.
*Cries in imperial*
What the L are you talking about
We should use cm to measure length. Think about how big your dick would be then
@BigJohnson86, still single digit *sobs uncontrollably*
