Why do you think I am a White Agle and not a Whit Eagle?
Because it's not WhitEagle, it's not Whiteeagle, it's not BlackEagle!

Human scales are usually in pounds, but others show that 1 kg is equal to 2.2 lbs. Fahrenheit is annoying and stupid, and I refuse to learn it. Except water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit and 0 degrees Celsius. Oops.
Someone upthred said that metric comes from French, which isn't true.

Umm... our rulers have cm and inches, our speedometers have km/hr and mph. Don't use 'em, but they're there. It's all a matter of what you're used to: you grew up in America, you (probably) grew up with Fahrenheit, inches, feet, and pounds, so you think in those units, too. Honestly, at least for temperature, there isn't much difference in F and C, except that C is what's used in science equations and crap (and I know some of them use K, not C). For everyday use, either works just fine.

No, they mean that the actual system came from France
