SAE vs Metric___Bytes vs What

Inches, Pounds, Gallons are obsolete and non-intelligent means to measure distance.

Millimeters, kilometers, meters are the current practical and intelligent means to measure distance.

Any American or British fool who argues this, generally argues with non-intelligent and dumbfounded reasoning such as "you must use kilometers so you can pretend you are going faster" or "what do you idiots use up there kilopounds or something?".

What triggered that person to think that it would be nice to have 12 inches in a foot, stamp wrenches with 1/8, 1/4, and 1/16, measure the freezing point of water to be 32 instead of 0? Even more ridiculous are the people that accepted and went through with these means of measurement. (if you are thinking of arguing this, please think about it hard again.)
Now comes the problem with bits and bytes. What will be done, to abandon this ridiculous bits and bytes concoction? i.e. there should be 10 or 100 bits in a "byte", or 10 bits in a tenbit, or 100 bits in a hunbit, or something similar.

Why not just use 7 twigs on a stick or 56 splints on a toothpick? Next thing you know we'll be basing our mission critical systems on munchies, cheese, bums, poles, sticks, twigs, bytes, bits, chomps, crunchies, and bats.

"But hardware wouldn't work without 8 bits, blah blah blah, and there are 2 fingers on my hands, not five, blah blah blah"

Even if it requires hardware to be changed drastically, the change needs to be thought up and acted upon. The ridiculous "8 bits in a byte" halts human progress. The ridiculous 1024 bytes in a kilobyte halts human progress.

Consider that using Kb and KB and mb and MB and mB and Mb is also halting human progress. Please use MBy and MBi or MByte and Mbit. It's really not going to take that much extra space on the product box, really.
