Metric system best :3

who was was idiot that was trying to tell us that miles were more accurate than kilometers?
4 years ago
i was the one saying that when dealing with temperature smaller units are more precise.....and no one seemed to understand what i was saying
4 years ago
so you probably mean me :/
4 years ago
Then wtf are you saying?
4 years ago
I'm saying that, for instance, if the cock that your mother is sucking jones is described in inches, it's a little less accurate as to the official length than if it were described as a measurement in centimeters, because of you know, rounding and all.
4 years ago
either way it's probably big and black though

What the hell does that have to do with temperatures and the units you measure them in?

rounding?????...no measurement is any more or less accurate zeke...one just makes more sense...
4 years ago
and, of course it only applies when you're not utilizing a decimal system. Like, if you were to say the big black cock that jones's mother sucks is 10.546 inches, that's just as accurate as using a smaller unit of measure.
4 years ago
Again, who are you arguing with, and what does this have to do with temperatures.
4 years ago
well, i used length as an example, because it would be easier to grasp than temperatures. I used your mother and a big black cock as examples because she loves it.
4 years ago
No one is disagreeing with you, well Dug might, what you're talking about is common sense.
4 years ago
They were all arguing in tiny about it Jones. The thing with temperatures is that say 75f is the same as 23.88888888888889. So Zeke is saying that saying man it's warm today it was 75 is easier/more accurate than saying 23, 23.8 or 24

Well, who doesn't...

well jones, it was something i said months ago in chat, and no one seemed to understand what i meant when saying that a smaller unit of measure (for temperatures) is more precise. And I had let it go until dik asked who the idiot was, because it's seriously mind-numbing to talk about.
4 years ago
You are aware that the Celsius is the smaller unit of measure right?
4 years ago
I'm not saying it's right or it's wrong. I'm just saying that that in a nutshell is what the argument was about
4 years ago
-40 celsius = -40 F. Water boils at 100 deg C and 212 deg F
4 years ago
so ( F ) english temperature measurement is more accurate.

o my fucking god

I stand corrected. Now take this argument back to chat where it belongs.

Hey, I wasn't arguing against you, I just didn't follow with the temperatures because I have no grasp on fahrenheit.
4 years ago
Technically Kelvin is most accurate because it relates to the actual kinetic energy of something, which is the definition of temperature. But kelvin is more used in chemistry, and all are accurate, just different ways of expressing the same energy. so shut up
4 years ago
That's what I'm here for Jones. Because of mucho I've figured out where abouts my F temp is for C as to not make weather chat confusing.

Chat sounds riveting.

it's not something i chose to haggle about
i didn't think "this should be fun, why don't i argue about units of measure"
i'm not tr
4 years ago
in other news 1 inch is the same exact measurement as 2.54 cm.. oh but lets use inches because it's more convenient! fuck america
4 years ago
that was my point.
only i was applying it to fahrenheit/centigrade
then everyone called me a moron
then 9 months later......this.........
4 years ago
there's an equation to convert if people are that worried. it's like 5/9+32 or something like that

yeah.......we know......

I'd prefer the Metric. Just seems more logical from what I know of it.

Metric so the only thing I need to know is numbers 0, 1, and 10 ... and seem smart.

As the video pointed out, all science is done in metric; however, for every day use, Americans will stay with the traditional usage. There are several reasons for this. The most obvious reason is the desirablity of speedy speech. It is so much quicker to say inch and mile than centimeter and kilometer. Furthermore, there are certain useful measurements that would disappear in metric, such as the foot, the jigger, and the gallon. There is also the practicality of the mile being 2000 paces and the jigger being one shot of liquor. In conclusion, metric is on some occasions too detailed, in others not enough. A good example of that is the imprecision in weather temperature versus the excessive information provided by giving the length in centimeters.
