You do know Americans use metric in the sciences, right? And we have been for the longest time

I also think that the American/Imperial system is utterly retarded when it comes to Chemistry, Physics, and Math.

However, I find using the American/Imperial system easier to use in everyday life, it is also easier for me to identify the fuel-efficiency of cars with Miles per Gallon (MPG) because it says how many miles you'll get on average for a single gallon, meaning that the higher the number, the better the fuel-efficiency. Meanwhile, the metric system uses the utterly ridiculous system of Liters per 100 KM, which means that it will tell you how many liters it consumes every 100 KM, meaning that the lower the number is, the better the fuel-efficiency. The latter system is overly complicated for no reason, it's easier to say the distance you'll get with a single fuel unit than how much fuel you'll consume in a certain distance.

Imperial simplifies things for the average consumer, metric is a scientific measuring law that was designed to make scientific relation between different values correspondent to each other.

It's basically a fuel-system that uses metric to make it "easier" for metric-using countries, but from my experience in living there, no one in the UK used it and preferred MPG.

Like I said, it's more complicated than the imperial variant.
