This man’s exasperated rant about imperial measurements is a hilarious argument for going metric

There’s a wonderful logic about metric measurements – unlike the imperial system, which has no apparent logic or reason and you simply have to learn the whole thing or you’re f_cked. A Twitter user named Moth Dad just discovered this for himself and shared the experience as it unfolded.

We’re not sure how, but it started with ounces in a pound and went downhill from there.

A little sarcasm slipped out.

It got worse when he moved onto pounds in a stone. Educational stuff.

The whole thing blew his mind so much, he was half convinced it was an elaborate prank.

Perhaps unwisely, he considered the US imperial system of cups …

Other problems of weights and measures came to mind – and made things worse.

He felt betrayed by the system – the imperial system.
