The backwards country

the sedentary life Add comments

After visiting different countries I come to realize how backwards America is. If I could go back in time whoever decided to use inches/feet instead of cm, gallons instead of liters, Fahrenheit instead of Celsius, pounds instead of kilograms, and miles per hour instead of kilometers per hour, I would say you are making a big mistake. You have no idea how many times I was asked how tall and how much I weigh in Taiwan and I had no idea. Thermostats were set at 24 degrees and I had no idea how cold or hot that was. Don’t forget to mention how fast when I was driving. Why we had to backwards is beyond me. Why couldn’t we stick to what everyone else in the world was using? I guess the best thing to do is get height and weight converted before I travel and a handy calculator with all the conversions programmed.
