More Pics That Prove Americans Will Do Anything To Avoid Learning The Metric System

Let's face it: Americans would rather stick to their weird system of measurement than learn the metric system. It's like trying to get a cat to take a bath—it's just not going to happen. They'll even drive in circles rather than converting kilometers to miles, which is a feat of determination that should be applauded.
The reason for all of this? Well, it's simple. They pretend the metric system doesn't exist. They'd rather use good old-fashioned miles per hour, even if the rest of the world is giggling behind their backs. And let's not forget the classic American tactic of not knowing the metric system at all. They'll stare at a sign in kilometers with a look of utter confusion, like a toddler trying to understand calculus. "What is this sorcery? I thought this was America!" they'll say as they miss their exit and end up on the wrong side of town.
Even though Americans may never fully embrace the metric system, at least they're keeping us all entertained with their hilarious attempts to avoid it. Keep reading as Emily brings you some of the funniest examples of them. And for all Americans reading this right now, keep on driving in circles; we'll be cheering you on from the sidelines!
