I don't understand anything about inches, feet etc... Is 6'1 the equivalant of 1, 82 meters? If so it's the right height. If not that's wrong.
Well Anglo-saxons have difficulties admitting that a French made system can be easier to use
(though the NASA has changed in the 70s or 80s to the International Unit System, thereby using meters and kilograms)
It's very annoying to work as an engineer with Americans for this reason... the list of stupid units they have is infinite
. And then you realize that they have units with the same name than the English but that there value is different
