America should absolute switch to the metric system. I'm still shocked we haven't. The metric system is used by all scientists and if you're not a scientist it is so much easier to convert measurements. There really isn't a good reason why we shouldn't except laziness. A very expensive mars probe was lost because someone had to translate the American system to the Metric system and they messed up.

We already have. Next time you buy a soft drink, look at the label. The net weight is in metric.
