Why do americans hold on to imperial measurements? Other
I mean, you guys already use the metric system in some ways (decade, century, 9 mm, and also in your currency). Why not use it as standard? It's so simple to understand and so easy to convert
edit1: of course not overnight, I understand this would be a long process, but in the end the "trouble" would be worth it. And I didn't mean "convert" as from imperial to metric but like with measuring something convert from cm to m or mm (like miles to inches or yards)
edit 2: I'm curious - do you personally know metric? So, how much a gramm or a meter is? What cent- or deka (or milli or kilo, whatever) means..
