    the imperial system might not seem logical at first, but as someone else mentioned, the system is pretty logical if you look at the past. one inch used to be called a thumb and was as long as a thumb thumb. for longer distances, they had the foot, which, you guessed it, is as long as an average foot. after that, you had the yard, which was about an arms length from shoulder to wrist, or in some jurisdictions from nose to thumb. finally, the mile is thought to come from the latin for thousand paces, one pace being 2 steps or about 1.4 yards.

    the problem with these measurements was that, because they were dependant on body lengths, they were variable from person to person. many families even went so far as to send the person with the biggest feet to the store for cloth, because cloth was sold by the foot. around 1450, British legislation sought to end this, giving the inch, the foot, the yard and the mile government mandated lengths, with one inch being 3 dried barley seeds put one after another (barley seeds are usually pretty uniform in length). the foot and yard were in that same law connected to the inch. The mile wasn't linked to the inch until several hundred years later.

    the pound was made out to be 7000 grains, but the ounce was the only measurement to be an arbitrary part of another measurement without historical background.

    now for a funny image:

    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    Or, you know, we could all not be ethnocentric asshats and just accept that Americans use the imperial system. Just because it's not as smooth as the metric system, it doesn't mean that it doesn't work or that you have to be a genius to understand it.

    Quite a lot of England still uses it too. We're supposed to have adopted the metric system, and yet milk is still sold per pint..

    I can't even put that in perspective. i've tried looking for a funny image of 700 water bottles put next to a man, but I can't find any. and pallets of bricks usually fit around 1300 KG of bricks.

    can anyone find a funny image to show how much 700 KG really is (while staying family friendly, of course)?

    I've seen one IRL. Was terrifying. Imagine running into that with your car. Your car's dead.
    That's why we have Elk Crossing signs, because they'll demolish your vehicle.

    Once when I was out driving in the forest I meet a elk, it was huge, I was very tiny, scary as hell.

    If it helps. this is a fiat 127 from 1975, and it weights 700kg

    All these moose/elk pics remind me of a joke.

    How did Banff get its name? It is the sound of a motorhome hitting a moose.

    OT:

    So because you don't use the metric system it's goofy? Excellent use of logic there bud.

    Do these beasts actually wander about where you live? o_O

    I'm glad I didn't see any of that in Sweden, though, I intend to visit Kiruna, Lulea and Umea. Will I see any of that there?
