You might be interested to know that least one NASA mission failed because of a Metric to English conversion problem. The scientists and engineers employed there usually use Metric but for "Public Relations" purposes often convert measurements to English.

Yeah, here in the land of high tech (and government bureaucracy) we still use the good old English measurement system!
