Hello all,
First thanks to all those who answered my various questions about technical

I was reading a report as I was preparing it for press and I came across one
sentence that makes no sense to me. Would someone please explain it to me?

The sentence is:

No self-respecting scientist would mix English and metric systems.

Does this mean that scientists only need to know one of the two systems? or
something else?

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Have a nice day?
