Exclamation Let's get rid of imperial unit system!
The imperial unit system is just stupid!

1 foot is 12 inch,
and 1 yard is 3 feet, so 36 inches
1 chain are 22 yards, or 66 feet, or 792 inches
1 mile are 80 chains, are 1760 yards, or 5280 feet, or 62260 inches

And how many inches is 2.83 yards? WTF?!

I was reminded that how stupid the imperial system is because of this thread.

I wish the US had followed through with switching to metric. We have to use it all the time anyways, so it just means we have to remember 2 systems for no good reason.

Well, the metric system is soooo easy, it doesn't really prove any difficulty to remember it. The imperial system is what takes up memory space for just plain stupidity.

Americans hate metric like its a communist or evolution

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".
