ok, this is so sad, but it sounded truthful
the Fahrenheit scale makes a lot of sense for measuring weather. In Fahrenheit, 0-100 degrees is roughly the range of temperatures that is habitable for people. And I know, it's not exactly the range of habitable temperature, but if there's a climate that spends a lot of time outside of that range, then people probably won't be very comfortable there. In Celcius, that translates into roughly -18 to 38, and Kelvin is 255 to 311. Those seem stupid and arbitrary by comparison.
this is arbitrary. habitable != comfortable, and who has a daily task of figuring out "habitable" ? in celsius, habitable does go way below the cited -18 anyway, i present nordic countries.
Also, if you measure only in 1 degree increments, Fahrenheit degrees are smaller and provide better resolution, though I suppose I can't tell the difference between 69 degrees and 70 degrees anyway.
and a surprisingly simple solution - you can say 21.5 degrees in celsius ! or you can add even more. for daily purposes, that is never needed, though
But similarly, the length of feet and yards are pretty convenient for measuring spaces. Being a relatively average-sized man, my foot is about a foot long, for example. If I want to measure the size of a room, I can put one foot in front of the other and walk, counting my footsteps.
and for an average man, a slow step is 1 metre. roughly. probably the same precision as trying to match different feet sizes...
In the end, I have a pretty good approximation. Measuring a person's height in feet also gives a range with pretty good resolution with adults typically being between 5 and 7 when you round. With meters, when you round, basically everyone is 2 meters tall.
which might be why nobody does that. everybody measures height in cm. which is also providing more than enough precision, for most needs
I know some people won't quite get my point, or they'll say, "But metric is so much easier once you know it!" Really though, metric is only much easier when you're doing math. On a day to day level, most of us don't need to do enough math for it to matter.
normal people use math daily. and it's so much easier with base 10. don't delude yourself, imperial is used in the usa just "because we don't care" - not enough external trade or other reasons to change + the normal resistance to change.
understandable in short term, but shortsighted in the long term.
