I often wonder what it is that prevents the US from moving to SI units. The Mars landing disaster alone would have made it worthwhile.
You have a point with the general public but all Science and Engineering is consistent with SI. I only tend to drink pints in pubs or with some 'posh' bottled beer at home. My only real sin is using mpg.
