Really? I'm suprised at that. Even in the UK, your average Joe on the street will defend the use of imperial measurements.
It turns out that for scientific purposes, everything is metric, but buying fruit or a steak etc, is often by imperial.
Farenheit is an interesting one though. Most people in the UK are reasonably comfortable with it, but no one ever uses it. It seems to be a solely US thing.
Anyway, I'm happy with either, it just helps to be consistent
. That said, If I see another US steam chart with ridiculous units like 'BTUs per lb'...
oh sorry, got waaaay off topic.
