America isn't the only nation that STILL uses Fahrenheit (Fahrenheit is older), in fact most developed nations used it at one point (imperial system is what some call the old system) until the metric system came along.
Actually F is more precise than C take into consideration:
100 F = 38 C
80 F = 27 C
100 - 80 = 20
38 - 27 = 11
20 - 11 = 9; That's 9 degrees of more accuracy.
I'm not saying US system (imperial) > metric though, metric is better IMO because it is waaaay easier to convert.
As an American that is familiar with both systems, I don't care what we use but in reality it is a bigger hindrance for other nations that we don't use the metric system because the massive majority of international media (books, movies, video games, etc.) that is either produced in the US or targeting the US market utilizes the imperial system for our benefit.
Little off topic: Out of curiosity googled "why the US doesn't us the metric system" and it's just crazy the volume of senseless anti-American comments you receive when you try to look at anything like that, people are so ignorant.
