Laziness, stupidity, and egotism are why the United States doesn't use the metric system

This is somewhat off-topic but still math related. I looked into it some time ago but in a world where a lot of things are firmly standardized it’s really really weird how the notation for decimals and thousands isn’t standard. Different parts of the world notate their decimals and thousands differently and i can assume this might cause issues every now and then
