Brought up in UK everything was Imperial. 

Imagine paying 2 bob tuppence ha'penny for 2 pecks of potatos.

Much the same as the notion of imperial being better than metric ...

 

Metric is far superior .. easier... faster.. and more accurate. I have been building and dealing with measurements all of my life , thank the lord it has been in metric....

There's still one industry that can't make up its mind.

Tyre manufacturers.

Imperial. 640 x15 =6.4 inches x15 inches diameter...

Metric. 205 x70 x16.=205mm x 70% (aspec ratio) but the diameter still in bloooooy inches..

But of course if your in America my understanding is that particularly in an off road environment you use 30/31/32.etc inches to describe Tyres
Which is......
( now somewhat used in Australia within the 4wd fraternity) Even though we are metric... But I think these Tyres come from a nonmetric country??.

The metric unit of weight is Newtons. Not kilograms. I have tried to explain this fact to the vegetable vendor at the public market but I just get funny looks.

If I was good at guessing, I would have been a pro gambler.

I was referring to your comment about how much 545.68 liters weighs, not how much water the coffin could hold.

Same thing though.  1 liter of water doesn't weigh 1Kg.
