Actually, There is good mathematic reason for the existing system.
Fractions.  Basically, it's a whole lot easier to find common
denominators in the imperial measurement system, and thusly do more
complex division in ones head.

Personally, I have a calculator now, and hate math, so I'm all for going
 metric, but I just wanted to point out that there is actually good
reasons for the seemingly strange numbers our existing system uses.
