Why hasn't the U.S. adopted the metric system?

Short answer: It’s complicated! 

While most nations use the metric system—those units of decimals that are universally employed in science—the U.S. still clings to pounds, inches, and feet. Despite several high-profile attempts to change that, Americans refuse to convert.

What do you think?
