Are you serious? For one, because it's all base 10 with consistent prefixes, which makes it easier to convert, e.g., mm, cm, km vs. in, ft, mi. Also, the measures are logically derived and interrelated, such as weight being derived from the volume of water.

i think he meant when comparing water intake to body mass...could be wrong though

I drink from 2 to 3 decimeter cube of water, wich equal 2 to 3 liters, or 2 or 3 kg, or 2000 to 3000 millimiter, or 2000 to 3000 g, or twenty or thirty billions micrometer cube.

about a gallon of wata a day, plus other stuff like iced tea. I drink alot less beer than I used to, maybe twice a week if at all. But I usually drink alot if I do
