Also, for the men, in metric, women become with guys over 1.8m, because its a round number, like 6', but 1.8m is actually 5'11''.

The Imperial System was made by the British Empire and both of us were using it during the early days of "the new world" the difference is that the British switched to Metric and we didn't. So the blame for who 'invented' the mile lays with them. That said, Metric IS better and we SHOULD switch. It's just tough to convince Americans to do anything.
