good morning to all the Americans who insist on using customary units in lieu of the (far better) metric system

I see you, and I know you're not ready, and we'll all be waiting for you when you are❤️

but if you decided to come at me with this "fahrenheit is actually better for everyday use" bullshit, I *will* block you

@ashfurrow Try this one:

Base 6 is the best counting base, so the superior approach would be to create a new set of units based on the same principles as the metric system, but optimised for heximal, and then to use those.

@OTheB seems like base6 is further from what humans use than base10, but to each their own I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Follow

@ashfurrow Base 6 is great. Has lots of factors, doesn't suffer from the nasty recurring decimals that dozenal does, and every prime number above 3 ends with either a 1 or a 5, which is a nice pattern.

It's also barely less dense than decimal, so you won't end up with huge long numbers.

Something to think about if you ever find yourself thinking "hmm, I really want to learn a new counting base, but I'm not sure which" :)
