some things are better not being metric, time for example. The Frenchies tried to make time metric way back but 10 is not very good as a division of time, 12 is much better.

You go 123.4 mm plus 567.8 mm=691.2 mm. In inches, 4.858267717 plus 22.35433071 =27.21259843 inches. So which would you rather build something with? Or you have something 4 33/64 inch plus 3 25/64 inch= 8 3/32 inch. What a stupid way to make stuff.
Or if I meas ...[text shortened]... which is going to be exactly half which comes out to exactly 500 mm.
Try all that in inches.
