    The metric system of measurements is all base 10. How much easier do you want it?

    The C and F thing as you call it isn't related to the metric system per say. Celsius based on how water acts in certain conditions, they use the point where water freezes as zero. Fahrenheit is mostly made up.
    for a person that doesn't use the metric system a lot its kinda difficult

    Then why don't you call it what it is? It's beef. There are several types of meat. I think you mentioned culturally that to only call beef meat but you need to think of your audience when you're speaking and writing in an international forum.
    oh i thinks its out of habit or i don't think about it

    Sigh....

    Yes I know that people in the US who don't use it on a regular basis get confused but it is far simpler than imperial measurement and makes more sense. It's also based on real world measurements unlike the imperial system.

    i bet it is simple and easier to use . i remember back in second grade they showed use the basics of the metric system. i should of asked for help but i didn't because i felt kinda dumb so i didn't ask:P. had i known that the rest of the world uses it i would of asked. funny thing after that i wasn't taught the metric system anymore . not even in my geometry or trigonometry

    Well those two things are just math. Doesn't matter what you use with them.

    Math? Ugh... 😷 Kinda irrelevant, but I hate math in any of its forms. Geometry, equations, trigonometry, logarithmic,... Worst nightmare I've ever faced at school.

    They are nothing compared to integration, differentiation, differential equations, believe me.

    Hah! As a 12th grader, I confirm that differential equations are... awesomely nightmarish. And I'm going to face integration and differentiation soon enough. Just a few months to go...

    *sighs* I miss the days when I was taught how to do additions and subtractions...

    Thought you were going to quote Shakespeare.

    I'm originally from Canada and we use metric. Most currencies I know are base 10. Not sure about all currencies as I haven't been everywhere. The UK wasn't base 10 until a few years back.

    The UK is a mix of metric and imperial measurements. However in engineering and science is all metric.

    The US is not metric but it's creeping in slowly.
    You're Canadian? And you're in the UK?

    um ..... it could play it but there's no point since it has a 720P screen
    I know it won't make much difference but FHD videos might look much better than HD videos on an HD screen.

    Who wanted a Windows version of the OnePlus One?
    They're not making one, see.

    Not expecting any startup to make a better Windows Phone than Nokia! Specifically 'Made In China' :P

    But a Xiaomi or a Huawei WP shall be a good alternative to 1+ 1.

    Then you in the subcontinent need to learn a lot more...
    Not everyone! American culture is the thing some people like to follow.
    So, when they say Western they may refer to American dance, clothes, food, etc. But people like me know what Western really means.
