Question. Systems of measurment.
OK so I am having a brain fart. I know many if not all other countries use the Metric System, but what is it called in the U.S.? What is our system of measurment called? I have no idea why I can't think of it..lol Thanks,
I thought that it's based off of the Imperial. I thought we used a different term? I could be very wrong though.
OK I found it. I actually decided to google.
The United States customary system (also called American system or, sometimes, "English units").
The U.S. system of units is similar to the British imperial system. Both systems derive from the evolution of local units over the centuries, as a result of standardization efforts in the United Kingdom; the local units themselves mostly trace back to Roman and Anglo-Saxon units. Today, these units are defined in terms of SI units
In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
its called the stupid ass system that doesnt make any sense. also known as the "we should be on the fucking metric system already" system.
