Should U.S. switch to using the metric system?

• ## More logical system

The customary system is based on 12 which is a strange number for measurements due to loads of fractions. The metric system however is based on 10. This is more fundamental to even just think about, In science and medicine the metric system is used because it takes less to think about. With metric, the basic unit of distance is meters; for volume it is liters; and for mass ,(essentially weight), it is grams. Each of these is a base and only the number of zeros is changed by the prefix. Think of this: a mile is 5280 feet, while a kilometer is 1000 meters. Which even sounds better?

• ## The U.S. needs a change!

The U.S. is getting behind in the world. We need metrics to stop confusion with other countries. For example, if an someone from another country was driving and they see a sign that says: " 40 miles" they will not know it means. Even though our "grandparents" grew up with the standard system doesn't mean that we have to. Also if the U.S. switched to metrics we would save a fourtune on labels because companies would only have to put the metrics version instead of having to pay more to put both labels.

• ## The metric system stinks

• ## No, that has not worked in the past.

No, the United States should not switch to the metric system, because the United States has been using a different system for years. When people have tried to force a switch over to the metric system in the past, it has not worked. The system we currently use is ingrained, and people understand it. It should continue.

• ## We learned the customary

Us, our parents, grandparents, even our great grandparents have learned the customary system. We should be our own country! We should be unique. Yeah other countries might use the metric system. Well, if they trade with us it just makes them smarter. We should not have to change our ways!
