Metric system is 10000000% better, easier and standard measurment!
Imperial/English measurment sucks and doesn't make sence. Only stupid idiot Americans who use it while the entire world use metric. 1 mile = 1.6 kilometer, does mile make sence? NO!

Almost as much as your post does. Look at it another way.

1.609344 Kilometers = 1 mile what makes sense about that conversion either. I mean come on, it takes 1.609344 of something to equal 1 unit of our measurement. And just to clear any mis-representations or mis-understandings up, the US does NOT use the Imperial system of measurement. Britain uses the Imperial system, while the US uses the US system of measurement. They use a lot of the same names for units of measurements, but not the same values in all cases. The US is not the lone hold-out when it comes to the metric system either, Britain still uses some Imperial measurements as does Canada, and other ex-colonies of the British Empire of days gone by.

Then get the hell back to your own Country. Or at the very least, learn enough English so your childish rants make some sense at least.

I think I have discovered another idiot for the ignore feature.
