    In Britain both are used and to convert to and from metric is taught in schools, a persons height and weight is measured in feet, inches and stones and pounds. Speed is measured in mph, as is distance, however, for smaller lengths we use metres and cms. Petrol is purchased in litres but consumption is measured in gallons. Milk is purchased usually in pints but for example mineral water is in litre/ml bottles. Fruit and veg usually in kilos. When she says lower sixth, she means an institution called sixth form college, where you study a course called A-Levels, aged 16-18. Upper sixth is the last of the two year course before heading to university. Universities are seldom referred to as colleges in the UK.

    Imperial system isn't that bad. Yeah it's old but still doing fine with it. Besides, don't we use some things from the metric system?

    I love America, but as an Aussie you guys have gotta get with the times lol. Water freezes as 0C, we aim to bench 100kg as a goal (225). You gotta throw out The Fahrenheit, pounds, yards, miles thing.... i only agree with imperial for height (im 6”2 so i prefer that to 188cm).
    Im just taking a light hearted jab, do your thing guys lol. Just learn to put brackets with conversion (F/C Pds/Kgs Mi/Km) when speaking with us non-USA English speaking peeps

    In a global world it's better for the USA to adapt to the uniform standard. There are still other areas where uniformity would better work out like e.g. for the date fields.

    This chick is a pompous, arrogant f@#$wit who actually believes she's better than all others. She's another dumbarse actor who gets paid to pretend she's someone else for a living. She has NO real skills.
