A lot of confusion exists between Imperial and Metric measurements.  In general I use metric measurements wherever possible.  The other side of 'The Pond' they still prefer Imperial and 'Down Under' it's Reverse Metric .....
 
 
 
+++++++   MILES a long way out.
++++++    BETTER getting closer.
+++++      BIT a bit nearer, not the digital 'bit'.
++++       TAD much better, just a tad more.
+++         GNATS almost there, just how small is a gnat?
++           SMIDGEON no idea, just give it a shove.
+             WHISKER as in cat's whisker, very close now.
 
zero         SPOT ON! success.
