Metric is better whn you are steeping out side becasue you cna easily do the math to make conversion of wind shill.
" why many meteorologists are including a "feel" scale" no, the include a feel scale to try to stay relevant and excuse there high paychecks by trying to be friendly; when in reality there isn't really a need for one on the vast majority of news shows.
No one who lie in an area for more then a year needs a 'feels' indicator'.
IT's not about good and useful it's about getting better. Metric is better becasue its cheaper, easier, and a standard. Stone knives and bear skin cloths were good and useful.
Nice upvote for completely ignoring the meat of my argument.
Making things easier to calculate only makes them easier to calculate, not better and a base 10 doesn't always make calculating easier. This is especially true when talking about temperature, because Fahrenheit allows for a higher degree of accuracy without including a decimal place.
Good arguments have been made here that converting to metric has actually increased costs.
Standards are nice, but not necessarily useful in to or applicable to daily life.
Newer does not make something better, and age does not make something obsolete. Animal hides (cow, sheep, alligator, bear and more) are still used extensively today, particularly in clothing, because it's still relevant and useful. Knives made from obsidian (a stone) are highly prized and are even used today in certain kinds of delicate surgery. So animal skins and stone knives ARE, not were, useful.
Furthermore, Fahrenheit was developed in 1724, and Celcius was developed in 1743. Relatively speaking, they're the same age.
