Miriana I do find it hilarious that America uses the british imperial standards lol. We changed in australia when I was a child and I had the same problems. My parents in law still can't think in metric. I am 53 so thats a long time ago lol. geez australia is part of the british commonwealth and we are metric and even britian is metric.
Australia is actually very big - almost the same land area as the united states so our differences are like comparing miami and new york city.
