Just learn conversion and we will all be fine.
Open your mind to learn new ways to do things.
I myself, try to cover as many bases as I can in life. And I like knowing someone else's language.
Either side of the Metric vs Imperial argument you are on, you are being bias and ignorant.
Way to speed up your learning curve ?
The Imperial system is confusing with 12 ,14 and 16 as measures...
Not to mention Miles, Gallons etc...

You should try the British Met-perial system,
I'll buy myself a pint of beer and my partner a nice 175ml glass of wine
I'll get myself some planed 4"x2" timber in 2000mm lengths
I'm not even sure anymore how many litres per mile my car gets
If the British systems aim was to confuse we do a great job smash both systems together and see what happens..

America is the last modern country that refuses to go metric. Why?
I'm in Australia and we went metric in 1969.
Does the US want to hold on to the old system when metric is so much easier to learn and calculate?
I know it costs a lot to change all signage and equipment but why is the US the only Western Power that refuses to change??
