    Computers were programmed in SI, but data were displayed in Imperial units.

    While in everyday life from a personal point of view it makes no difference what system one uses (leagues, cubits, els, foreskins etc) since it's mostly a matter of habit, which is also why there will never be an end to the travesty of the muh-system-of-measurements-is-better-n-yours-cause-muh-pappy-used-it, imperial measurements, as shown by Aea's pretty picture, have the added benefit of not only being especially brainfucked in terms of fractions of an inch but also would you cunts decide which system of fucking imperial measurements of volume is an actual gallon!!! For the record, US gallon is 3.8 litres and the UK gallon is 4.5 litres.

    As an American, I am revoking your citizenship for apologizing. Please gather your things so you can be deported to Canada.

    At school, I went through a period of using both Imperial and Metric at the same time.
    Parents only ever used imperial while school was all metric, so I just used whichever seemed closest at the time. A box being 1m long and 1foot wide seemed just fine to me.
