Mission Impossible: making last-minute travel plans to go _anywhere_ during Carnaval
Star Trek Discovery: I would love it if in the mirror universe, the evil Terrans used imperial units.
Watching Star Trek Discovery, I like it how it always uses metric. For American audiences, it probably sounds "futuristic" too. "Look, it's the future, we have warp drive, solved money and famine, and everyone uses metric!"
Flashback to when URLs were a "new" thing and TV hosts would slowly spell out the whole thing:
"If you'd like to know more about it, you can check it out on the internet at AITCH, TEE, TEE, PEE, COLON, SLASH, SLASH — that's two slashes — ..."
