imperial units are the internet explorer of measurement

nobody likes them including the people who use them but they're still around because they used to be a thing and now we have to keep them around

@AgathaSorceress I've got two 1970s books about car maintenance that I bought second hand, one is the UK version and the other the German version, its easier for me to read the German version than deal with converting units - if you went to school from late 1970s you are taught in metric anyway.

Thankfully we still use metric for all modern engineering and maintenance work in this country and the gammons are extremely unlikely to change this, no matter how much they might try..
