Yes, I was just trying to emphasize the rest of the world when it comes 
to SI, basically it's the USA standing by itself when it comes to miles, 
inches, feet, pounds.
The USA is trying of course... I see decimalised imperial measurements a

to final step into metric land! (-:
And then we need to take on the maritime and aeronautical industries!
