Mandating the metric system

And living in the United States, I almost never use it. The reason that I never use it is that for my day to day life outside of work it simply offers no advantages to me.

Decimal relations also applied to units of area and volume.

Units of mass were masses of a given volumes of water.

By the 1830s, standards based on British units of length, area, and volume were distributed to the states, and from there to local authorities.

In the meantime, a new system of weights and measures, developed by French scientists following the Revolution of 1789, gained increasing international use.

This metric system had as its fundamental unit of length the meter, defined to be a small fraction of the length of a meridian of the earth.

Other units of length were decimal multiples or fractions of the meter.

That is because 10 is divisible by only 5 and 2, where as 12 is divisible by 2,3,4, and 6.

The United States is the only country that has not switched to the metric system other than Burma and Liberia [1].

The metric system has been adopted world-wide (except for those crazy stuborn Americans) because of the inherent superiority of base10 mathematics in every day use.
