Feel like we need to start using SI prefixes with the Imperial system.

I want to know how many megafeet per hour something is traveling.

@ted megafeet or mebifeet? Or are those equal? ;)

@zhenech depends whether you're using the US or the UK system.

They're 0.9324% off just to make things difficult, in true imperial system fashion.

@ted even in SI-land I've been trying to get people to use the megameter more...

1Mm == 1000km is approximately one hour's airliner travel, which is honestly a really convenient unit for travel planning

@ted We do already have centipedes and millipedes, so there's precedent.
