Commissioned by Cata, yet again.

What shall the United States Government do to contain its plague of U.S.-Americentrism from spreading to foreign countries ?

Here's a recent bombshell.

And that's before we even get into how fucking crazy America's politics are compared to most of the world.


Time to excruciatingly refute this exacerbation.

Kosovo just saw one of their political parties intentionally set off tear gas grenades in parliament to prevent a vote.

In the UK, thousands of young girls were systematically groomed, abducted, forced into prostitution, beaten, and in some cases killed while the authorities stood by and did nothing. Also in the UK, a man faces jail time for teaching his pug to respond to Nazi slogans.

In Turkey, journalists are regularly imprisoned for criticizing--or being perceived as criticizing--the country's islamist wannabe strongman dictator, and in Germany the Merkel government explicitly supported the criminal prosecution of a German national for reading a poem that criticized that same Turkish islamist dictator.

South Korea recently had an up-and-coming young President impeached and removed from office for corruption. Japan is considering re-establishing offensive military capability for the first time in seven decades. In the Philippines, the President has employed literal death squads. In Myanmar, a protracted genocide of a religious minority is ongoing--everyone knows about it, no one cares, nothing will be done to stop it.

In Egypt, general El-Sisi clings tenuously to power through the brutal repression of his people, the only moderately stable alternative the country has found to being ruled by terrorist puppets of the Muslim Brotherhood.

But Trump said some mean things, so obviously the US is the one with all the problems

What's wrong with this?

I actually agree with this. There are 3 types of football: Football (Soccer), Gridiron Football (US), and Rugby Football. US Football should be called Gridiron.

and use metres.
The companies in the US that do major trading should be more inclined to use the metric system, but the people of the US are taught both the US standard and metric systems, so I don't know why this is a huge deal.

They are taught it, but many apparently dont memorise it, because they dont care.

Yeah. Why would we care? We don't use it. The idea that we should use it and care about it just because everyone else does is stupid. Do I think the metric system makes more sense? Yes. Do I think it would be better if we used it? Yes.

But the fact is, we don't use it. We use the imperial system. Thus it's pointless to memorize the metric system when 95% of us will never use it for anything.

I'm fucking tired of this. When one country does something different from most other countries, they're "different" and "have a unique culture." But when the US does it, all of a sudden that narrative changes to they're "stupid" and "are full of themselves."

Ease up on your anti-US boner. Seriously.

We memorize it. It's all base 10 increments; it's not hard.

The Imperial standard, on the other hand, would be harder to memorize when introduced to it as a secondary form of measurement, but that doesn't matter to anyone who isn't permanently moving to the U.S. or U.K. Alas and alack, it really doesn't matter what Americans use to measure things in their own everyday lives, and is therefore a poor choice on your part to advocate against on this thread. The worst thing I've experienced is when working on a car, and the bolt size is metric when I thought it was Imperial, and vice versa. Ratchet and wrench sets are sold with both measurements nowadays, anyway, so that's only a minor annoyance that does not need the attention of the U.S. government right now, or ever.

As a side, Fahrenheit is superior to Celsius outside of the laboratory, and I will defend my poor and innocent temperature scale to my death.
