Astronomers do in fact use strange olde worlde units, they talk about the energy of colliding galaxies in ergs and wavelengths in angstroms.you have to be patient and bear with them.
Personally, I prefer to measure everything in mfinches. The mfinch is a fraction of an inch - 1/51 to be precise.
I am reminded of the original Harry Potter story where harry visits his bank and find the sub units of his assets are in factors of seventeen and thirteen.Rather like the olde worlde English system only even worse.
