I went to reply to a message and... I couldnt even fit the whole thing.

Beer, Confused, and Crazy: 6 months ago Americans do use the metric system. We just use the imperial system when it makes more sense to do so in context. Metric is fine if you're if you're constantly switching between units of measurement, but honestly it sucks for the real world measuring real world things. Take temperature, for example. There is nothing special about Earth's atmospheric pressure, or the chemical substance water, yet Celsius is based on a 0-100 scale that corresponds to those things. It's utterly useless on other planets where the boiling point of water is very different, or there may be no water at all. Meanwhile, Fahrenheit's 0-100 roughly corresponds to the seasonal temperature variation of the temperate climate. That's actually pretty useful in human terms. Humans can easily survive in 0-100 degrees F, without a whole lot of problems, and if the temperature goes much above or below that range humans start to have real problems. Fahrenheit also allows for a lot more precision without having to resort to decimals. To be clear, both Celsius and Fahrenheit are totally arbitrary, but one tries to seem more "scientific" and the other roughly corresponds to the human experience. At least Kelvin starts with absolute zero, a temperature we believe to be a universal constant. Let's talk distance. Metric distances are good for only one thing, dividing by 2, 5, or 10. There's a reason why advanced cultures throughout history tended to use bases like 12, 60, or 360 for their mathematics. You can evenly divide a number like 12 by 2, 3,4, 6, and 12. Fractions are not only easy to understand but extremely useful for construction. How often do you actually need to know what a tenth of length is? How often do you need to know what a third of a length is, or a quarter? Probably a lot more often. So what are these crazy imperial measurements? They again, all come from human experience, rather than some arbitrary "scientific" measurement with no basis in anything humans tend to care about. A foot was originally a person's foot. A yard was originally a person's stride while marching. A mile was originally roughly how far a person could march if their left food hit the ground 10000 times (about 2000 yards). An inch of course is 1/36th of a yard, but when you realize 36 can be evenly divided by 2, 3,4, 6,9,12, and 18, it's actually a pretty useful measurement for avoiding decimals. As things got standardized, these distances changed a bit, but they're still very much in human terms. How is the meter defined? By the speed of light. When's the last time a human went the speed of light? I'd give metric some credit for at least choosing a universal constant, even if it's a totally foreign concept to every human that's ever lived, but 1 meter is actually defined as how far light travels in a vacuum in 1/299792458th of a second. Uh, okay. Humans can't live in a vacuum, can't travel the speed of light, and 299,792,458 is a rather odd choice of number for a system of measurement that's positively obsessed with base 10. But wait, that's just the current definition. Before that speed of light thing, they defined the meter as the wavelength of the orange-red emission line of the isotype krypton-86 in a vacuum, multiplied by 1,650,763.73. Hooray, science! I'm sure that's something everybody is really familiar with. Before that, they did something with an alloy of platinum and iridium, and before that they tried to base it off of the equator and north pole, and before that, a pendulum with a 2-second period. Phew! I suppose it's a good thing that we've carefully defined a second as being 9,192,631,770 cycles of the radiation that gets an atom of cesium-133 to vibrate between two energy states, or else we'd really be confused. You know, instead of using the practical human experience of simply dividing up a day by 24 easily divisible units, then dividing it up again by 60 easily divisible units, and then dividing it by 60 again I suppose if you're okay with basing your life on the speed of light and cesium-133 isotopes, and the numbers 299,792,458 and 9,192,631,770 are easy for you to remember, there's nothing really wrong with the liter. I can't really think of any reason why the gallon is better, but I also can't think of a single reason why it's worse. Nobody really knows where the gallon came from other than that historically people enjoyed buying wine and beer in gallons. Hey, sounds good to me. At least with gallons, fractions are again very easy. Liter people have to go to milliliters pretty quickly to measure anything whereas gallon people just go to pints and quarts and cups and such, all of which roughly correspond to the sizes of containers and utensils that have historically been used by basically everyone everywhere to eat and drink with, and all are very easily divided into fractions for recipes. In the US, we use liters and gallons side-by-side without any difficulty. I will admit that grams are actually quite reasonable a measurement, since they correspond to mass, rather than weight, and thus can be applied anywhere in the universe, unlike pounds. It's also worth noting that in the United States grams are widely used across all aspects of society, for measuring things that grams make sense for. Grams still have the same problem as degrees Celsius, however, since they're based on an arbitrary chemical substance, under arbitrary atmospheric pressure, problems further compounded by the use of an arbitrary temperature (4 degrees Celsius) in the definition as well. But, not to worry, in 2019, they're going to change the definition of the kilogram. They still haven't voted on which new definition they'll use, but the choices seem to be something called Kibble Balance that basically defines the kilogram using the Earth's gravity, a definition based on some physical constants we haven't even been able to measure precisely yet, and "the mass which would be accelerated at precisely 2x10-7 m/s^2 when subjected to the per-metre force between two straight parallel conductors of infinite length, of negligible circular cross section, placed one metre apart in vacuum, through which flow a constant current of 1/1.60217X*10-19 elementary charges per second". Hooray, science! If it's not clear by now, metric might have that divide-by-ten thing going for it, but little else. It's based on arbitrary things and physical constants that are completely out of the realm of normal human experience. Imperial is much friendlier to division by numbers besides 10, and has its roots in normal human experience. When we are living on other planets, we will still be trying to live in habitats that are in the 0-100 degree Fahrenheit range, even if we're using Celsius measurements on our thermometers. When we walk a thousand paces on a nice hike through the woods, we will be walking about half a mile, even if we measure that distance in kilometers. When we drink a cup of coffee, itll still be about 1/32nd of a gallon, even if we measure it in milliliters. Ten is just an arbitrary number anyway. Sorry, but it is. Anyone with even a basic mathematical education knows that there are other numeral base systems. You're looking at this comment I wrote on a device that only understands base 2 mathematics. There are more computer chips using base 2 on this planet than there are people having to count to 10 on their fingers. Maybe we should switch all our measurements to base 2. Or maybe we should just use units and bases that are appropriate to the situations we need to use them in. Epic reply on YouTube to somebody saying Americans can't grasp metric

 1/299792458th of a second. Uh, okay. Humans can't live in a vacuum, can't travel
 the speed of light, and 299,792,458 is a rather odd choice of number for a system
 of measurement that's positively obsessed with base 10. But wait, that's just the
 current definition. Before that speed of light thing, they defined the meter as the
 wavelength of the orange-red emission line of the isotype krypton-86 in a
 vacuum, multiplied by 1,650,763.73. Hooray, science! I'm sure that's something
 everybody is really familiar with. Before that, they did something with an alloy of
 platinum and iridium, and before that they tried to base it off of the equator and
 north pole, and before that, a pendulum with a 2-second period. Phew! I suppose
 it's a good thing that we've carefully defined a second as being 9,192,631,770
 cycles of the radiation that gets an atom of cesium-133 to vibrate between two
 energy states, or else we'd really be confused. You know, instead of using the
 practical human experience of simply dividing up a day by 24 easily divisible
 units, then dividing it up again by 60 easily divisible units, and then dividing it by
 60 again
 I suppose if you're okay with basing your life on the speed of light and
 cesium-133 isotopes, and the numbers 299,792,458 and 9,192,631,770 are easy
 for you to remember, there's nothing really wrong with the liter. I can't really think
 of any reason why the gallon is better, but I also can't think of a single reason why
 it's worse. Nobody really knows where the gallon came from other than that
 historically people enjoyed buying wine and beer in gallons. Hey, sounds good to
 me. At least with gallons, fractions are again very easy. Liter people have to go to
 milliliters pretty quickly to measure anything whereas gallon people just go to
 pints and quarts and cups and such, all of which roughly correspond to the sizes
 of containers and utensils that have historically been used by basically everyone
 everywhere to eat and drink with, and all are very easily divided into fractions for
 recipes. In the US, we use liters and gallons side-by-side without any difficulty.
 I will admit that grams are actually quite reasonable a measurement, since they
 correspond to mass, rather than weight, and thus can be applied anywhere in the
 universe, unlike pounds. It's also worth noting that in the United States grams are
 widely used across all aspects of society, for measuring things that grams make
 sense for. Grams still have the same problem as degrees Celsius, however, since
 they're based on an arbitrary chemical substance, under arbitrary atmospheric
 pressure, problems further compounded by the use of an arbitrary temperature (4
 degrees Celsius) in the definition as well. But, not to worry, in 2019, they're going
 to change the definition of the kilogram. They still haven't voted on which new
 definition they'll use, but the choices seem to be something called Kibble Balance
 that basically defines the kilogram using the Earth's gravity, a definition based on
 some physical constants we haven't even been able to measure precisely yet, and
 "the mass which would be accelerated at precisely 2x10-7 m/s^2 when
 subjected to the per-metre force between two straight parallel conductors of
 infinite length, of negligible circular cross section, placed one metre apart in
 vacuum, through which flow a constant current of 1/1.60217X*10-19 elementary
 charges per second". Hooray, science!
 If it's not clear by now, metric might have that divide-by-ten thing going for it, but
 little else. It's based on arbitrary things and physical constants that are
 completely out of the realm of normal human experience. Imperial is much
 friendlier to division by numbers besides 10, and has its roots in normal human
 experience. When we are living on other planets, we will still be trying to live in
 habitats that are in the 0-100 degree Fahrenheit range, even if we're using Celsius
 measurements on our thermometers. When we walk a thousand paces on a nice
 hike through the woods, we will be walking about half a mile, even if we measure
 that distance in kilometers. When we drink a cup of coffee, itll still be about
 1/32nd of a gallon, even if we measure it in milliliters.
 Ten is just an arbitrary number anyway. Sorry, but it is. Anyone with even a basic
 mathematical education knows that there are other numeral base systems.
 You're looking at this comment I wrote on a device that only understands base 2
 mathematics. There are more computer chips using base 2 on this planet than
 there are people having to count to 10 on their fingers. Maybe we should switch
 all our measurements to base 2. Or maybe we should just use units and bases
 that are appropriate to the situations we need to use them in.
