I know its easy to convert but it is till is a pet peeve of mine. I SAY WE RAISE OUR BEERS TO THE CANADIAN FLAG AND UNITE! BECOME ONE WITH THE METRIC SYSTEM!.....but lets keep measuring with feet and inches until we get to kilometers and weigh ourselves in LBS not KG's lol!
I really wish I could take this ride with ya...... after my 4th home-brew on brew-day I cannot do the conversion any longer so why fight it, I just use the imperialistic system...
Funny to know the U.S. was undergoing metrication at the same time we did but Reagan pulled funding. They are legislated to use metric for trade and commerce. We are not actually.

I convert to metric when forced to in a couple key places (weighing out my hops because my scale only reads grams, setting the temperature of my fermentation chamber because my STC-1000 only does Celcius), but everything else is imperial. Even OBK sells hops, grain, PBW, etc. by the pound/ounce, not kilogram/gram. Why fight the system?
