Perhaps, but the majority of people cannot use a mile (1.61 km.) or feet (33.5cm) or inches (2.54cm).

Only Liberia, Myanmar and the US hang on to this imperial System. Therefore I shared the distance for the majority of the world. 😉

UK predominately uses miles for distance too.

Although metric for anything it feels like at the time. And Celsius for low temperatures and Fahrenheit for hot. Its a bit weird.

I've lived in London for 11 years and never heard anyone use Fahrenheit, in what context would it be used? All the recipes I've seen use Celsius.

People. We say it to each other all the time. "Oooh it'll be in the 70's this week"

I would hope that the majority of the world can use google and convert it in about 5 seconds if they felt curious.

You already did so thank you! But it’s not like it’s some mystery or super hard to find out.
