As an American in my 50s, I'm not really comfortable with metric. I use it all the time (In fact one of my jobs when I edit is conversion) plus the fact that while Europeans use the Centimeters instead of millimeters, most military ordinance, especially in the US, is stated in mm rather than cm. A 3'' gun is 76.2mm etc instead of 7.62 cm. Call it a quirk, like the descents into sewage.
