Thats the trouble with the UK. I can buy a *pint* of beer, but then the pub
has metric 35centilitre optics.

All my groceries are sold by the
gram/kilogram/millilitre/litre/centimetre/whatever, but then all the
roadsigns are in yards/miles.

I dont know how the airlines manage. I listen quite a bit to airband, they
talk about visibility distances in *metres* , and altitudes in *feet* . In
fact there was a very dangerous case of a metric imperial conversion cockup
in Canada a few years ago. The pilot ordered so many pounds of Jet-A fuel,
the airport had just gone over to metric, result the aircraft ran out of
fuel in mid-flight. There was a TV-movie made about it.
