Metric units make sense. Ameriburger bullshit doesn't. No one has time to to sit down and calculate how much a gallon weighs or how many ounces are there in a quarter of a pint.

Except when you need to mess around with thirds and quarters of a cup or teaspoon. Say you got a recipe for a dough that makes 10 something. Great if you need to make 10, what if you need 18? 22?

Just going to say that I'm pretty sure that every single measuring implement that I've bought at the store has both imperial and metric unit marks. Even the tablespoon scoops say 15 mL's (which would come out to 240 mL/cup, which should only be about a 2% error). So just use whatever measurement the recipe is in.

I know that us yuropoors are a bunch of smug shits but metric is generally better than imperial

>> No.16288938

A gallon is 8 lbs. A quarter pint is 4 oz, or a half cup. It's not that hard. Decimal systems make the least sense, 10 only has 2 factors, 2 and 5, whereas the imperial system was designed to maximize ease of divisibility. There's a reason why decimal time never took off. Decimal systems are the worst.
Is imperial the best possible system? No, obviously not, but it's leagues better than the nutty autistic french bullshit that the rest of the world uses.

>> No.16288948

I have not moved a single goalpost. There is no system in which there are multiple ounces to be confused by. Even America, with two ounces in its system, clearly names the second one "fluid ounce"

Niggers are America's gods. Americans fear niggers like a mortal would fear God. They're not allowed to curse or speak ill of niggers, like how you mustn't blaspheme God or take His name in vain. They devote entire institutions in academia and media to remind themselves of their sins against niggers and beg for mercy, like you'd beg God for forgiveness for your sins. The only landmarks and monuments they're allowed to revere are parks, schools and statues dedicated to famous niggers, immortalized in marble like gods. While their ancestors expressed devotion to gods through offerings of food and drink, present-day Americans created food stamps for niggers for this very purpose. Jesus gets two annual days of reverence, while niggers get an entire month plus MLK's birthday. Americans prostrate themselves in the streets to appease niggers. This is because nigger worship is the official religion of America.

It's probably not uncommon here for a family houshold in particular to have both a measuring cup set as well as scales of some sort.

In either case it's all thought of as metric, and therefore considered as adding some amount of grams or ml to a recipe. That's what's cups will mainly be used for, whereas scales will mostly be reserved for portion sizes.

>> No.16308380

Kilogram was originally named the Grave and the Gram was called Gravet. This was before they came up with their suffixes and prefixes.
But Grave (unit of mass) sounded too close to Grave (title of nobility) and France was still in a guillotining mood, so they ixnayed both Graves.
Also it was felt that the smaller Gravet was going to be the more useful everyday unit, so after they renamed it the Gram they declared it to be the official base unit of mass and the Grave then became the Kilogram.
Then later they thought it was silly that the Gram was so much smaller than the Metre and the Litre, but it was too late to rename everything so they just said Kilogram is now the base unit instead.
