    Each degree has 10 units. We measure temperatures in 10ths of a degree. Thus, 1,000 units.

    They're outdated measurements that suffer from strange conversion factors, and no measurement scale is more or less accurate than any other. That depends on the sensitivity and proper calibration of the instrument you're using, not the size of the units along the scale.

    Most of all, the US hodge-podge of units is just not the standard. The metric system is, and at some point people just need to get on board. Even in the States I understand metric is used in many facets of life already, and in many sectors. All that remains is everyday use and commerce. Might as well just make the switch.
    Metric is the one with strange conversion factors. 1 mile is 1.609344 kilometers. Miles are so convenient. The number of miles tells you approximately how long it takes to get there. It takes 60 minutes to go 60 miles where the speed limit is 60 miles per hour, which is what it is on most U.S. highways. But it takes 60 minutes go 96.56064 (thanks Google) kilometers, another strange conversion.

    Okay, Calgary and Edmonton are 300km apart. It takes three hours at 100 km/h. Easy math.

    Apparently (thanks Google) that would be 186.411 miles apart ??!! for a grand total of 186.411 minutes travel time? Pfff. Fuck that.
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    No, your unit is the degree. 1/10th of a degree is a subdivision of the unit. You could just as easily say you measure in 100ths of a degree and thus, 10,000 units. But, the base unit of measurement is the degree and there are 100 degrees between freezing and boiling.

    I'll admit though the degree difference is insignificant and I'm just being pedantic because I had bad day.

    And that, sir, is the problem Americans have. They insist on converting.

    Metric is easy if you don't convert.

    Re: Canada without the 1 cent coin

    Last year a bank in Winnipeg had rolls of the 2012 coins in stock so I bought a couple to squirrel away. Don't know if they'll be worth any extra as I'm sure a lot of people are hoarding them. It was only a Loony. If they do become valuable I'll have a 100 uncirculated to sell.

    I am saving all of the Canadian pennies that I can find....

    Living so close to Canada, we often find them mixed into our change from stores.

    In time you will, once metric is introduced. Can't remember exactly when we converted from the old imperial system to metric (back in the early 70's, I think - when I was in my late teens) but I do remember that it didn't take me long to start thinking metric in everything (especially temperature).

    You Yanks are just being stubborn!!!!

    The only coins circulating in our currency now are 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, $1 and $2 coins ...

    speaking of coins from Australia

    here's one I have on my buy list; hope to get soon

    1927 Florin

    Re: Canada without the 1 cent coin

    I say good for Canada on doing away with pennies!
    The US should do the same since it costs more than 1c to make 'em (people here are too stubborn so I don't see it happening for some time yet)
    I've heard it also costs more than 5c to make a nickel

    The US did have a 2c coin back a long time ago..only place I've ever seen one was at a coin show/sale

    It's really handy. In NZ they got rid of 1,2 & 5 cent pieces, then downsized the remaining 10, 20 & 50 cent pieces so they're no bigger than a US quarter at the most. One and two dollar coins are handy for pocket change spending and vending machines.
    As for metric conversions, the rest of the world only converts measures to imperial for the benefit of US citizens or for archaic items. No confusion over many fluid ounces in a quart or pounds in stone, etc.
    Blah blah blah, something enigmatic sounding...

    Just like the gun threads, a bunch of foreigners trying to tell America how to do things. Do I come to your country and tell you how ridiculous it is?

    Yes, America does do things differently. That's why I like it. Telling us we should be more like the other countries is like after you tell your mom you're gay and she keeps trying to set you up with girls.

    It's not that simple. The U.S. doesn't use imperial liquid measures. It uses its own.

    It takes 1.2 gallons U.S. to equal one imperial gallon. One barrel of oil = 42 U.S. gallons, 34.9 imperial.

    LOL. Just like the gun threads, a bunch of foreigners tell each other what works in a whole bunch of different countries and all those countries say "Wow - good idea - we should try that here!" instead of getting all defensive.

    Doing things differently is a good thing, but not when it leaves you behind everyone else and out of touch with the rest of the world - except, perhaps, for Liberia and Burma. That's why Hubble didn't work. That's why there were so many problems building the Space Station. That's why you can't sell your cars outside the United States. The measurements don't convert well enough to fit together.

    ...and, BTW, American cars have been metric for about 30 years now. You don't find them in other countries very often because other countries can't afford to fill them with gas.
