Dune used meters and feet. So when someone mentioned it was 90 degrees on Arrakis...

It seems a cow's body temp is about 38º, but milk must be stored at around 4º

Now would be a good time to put Americans to work replacing outdated highway signs.

A few years ago I configured my smart phone to use International Units. Easy!
