Human Scale Measurements

Outside of scientific contexts, I’m just not a fan of the metric system. Feet and inches feel intuitive for most objects that I handle on a daily basis.

Likewise Fahrenheit is more natural with a great range of degrees for the climates most people live in. Water freezing at zero and boiling at a hundred in Celsius doesn’t do anything to simplify my life.

Along those lines is the ri. To quote Craig Mod:

A ri is a unit of measure, it’s about how far a person can walk in an hour at a reasonable pace. It clocks out at roughly 3.93 kilometers.

That’s a beautiful, intuitive measure. Measures were made for humans, not scientism.
