No, it isn’t. It is because the english-speaking countries decided to adopt the period as a decimal marker while literally the entire rest of europe used a comma.

And we weren’t colonized by Britain.
It’s pretty clear that, given the other uses for a period and a comma, the english way is better (for once)
The “.” as a delimiter is awkward and contrary to how it is used in non-numeric contexts. The top way looks much cleaner, and allows the comma to continue seperating things within a whole and the period to bring an air of finality to whatever precedes it.
It is cleaner.
It just isn’t gross or wrong.
I’ll start to do it in the medieval way and no-one will stop me.

At everything else we do
Imperial units suck

Meanwhile, Britain comes to a standstill due to 4 inches of snow
I know we’re massive complaining layabouts but this takes the cake
That’s actually sad NGL
and they said we could survive on our own

I think you’re thinking of Australia, which is an elaborate hoax
It’s Austria lol
No, Australia is America but upside down
It’s Canada which doesn’t exist
Coming super early for job interview or just on a normal time is nervewrecking. You’re either just stewing there for what feels like eternity or you stress so much about making it on time. (45 minutes early, because I thought snow might be a bitch)
Just pretend the interviewer is in his underwear
meanwhile in Britain:
shitshitshit there’s like 1 mm of snow abort abort quickly everybody CLOOOOOOOOOSEEEEE DOOOOOOWN
