"The main argument for the metric system is NOT because it is standard, regardless of what TFA says. The reason we should switch to the metric system is the same that the rest of the world has already -- it simply makes a whole lot more sense. Everything is base 10," So if I am driving a kilometer a minute.. Does that mean in an hour I went 10 kilometers or 100 kilometers? Everything being base 10 and all. Why hasn't country switched to metric unit of time as a standard? You state it isn't because something is standard but makes more sense. I use the metric time to show you that, right or wrong, something being standard pretty much the whole argument.
