  • Either you use the Metric system or you use the wrong system.

    • Those who use imperial answered anonymously. So i'm pretty sure everyone's on the same page 😂

  • A lot of this is cultural. The UK may "officially" be metric, but they still use weights and measures like "Stone".

    For science classes and the military, they may use metric, but for those of us in everyday parlance, farenheit and miles work fine. And even in the military, ammunition at 5.56 mm, 7.62 mm, and 12.7 mm, is still "22, 30, or 50 caliber".

    Meanwhile, while they may sell market commodities in lots of 10, 100, 1000, those commodities are *bushels* of wheat, *troy ounces* of gold, *barrels (55 gallons)* of oil, and I could go on and on.

  • Both, but the convention is to use different units in different contexts.
    eg. Units of length:
    * Distance - Miles
    * Height - Feet & Inches
    * Other - (Centi) metres

    Admittedly, this does make some things quite complicated - for example, we measure fuel economy in miles per gallon, and the price of fuel in pence per litre - so good luck trying to work out how much it will cost you to drive from A to B !

  • I use both.

    Construction and manufacturing in the US still use Imperial.
    Science and most automobiles are in SI/metric.
