I need to know what you think about the metric system

When I measure things, my units are...

Entirely Metric
14(12.7%)
A bizarre mix of metric and imperial.
81(73.6%)
Entirely Imperial
9(8.2%)
SEIWEIC
6(5.5%)


For me, I'm a bizarre mix. I grew up in the middle of the conversion process, and I think in miles for long distance, cm and metres for short distances, centigrade for winter temperatures, farenheit for hot days, and measure out liquid in ml, unless it's a pint.

So far as I can tell, kids nowadays are entirely metrificated.

Context being this push for the USA to finally join the rest of the planet.
