Why not? Why the letter jumble pretense of pronouncing it like one dialect in that country does? 1) They wouldn't understand anyway. 2) If they did, one of you better immediately switch to English or BURMese anyway to get to communicating. 3) Its spelling is not easily deciphered by a lot of people, e.g. kids in school. 4) You've just thrown away the centuries of global connections and culture. All connotations to past writings of Burma or things called Burmese out the window.
The average person now has no connection to the rich history of places like Ceylon, Amoy, Batavia and so on without always translating hundreds of place names changed for no reason whatsoever. The average person and school kid never will.

I knew it because it's the unit used in Asimov's stories. My memories of the Star Wars movies are fuzzy at best.

I tried "parsek" as a total joke, recalling Han Solo's brag from Star Wars. When it wasn't accepted, I figured it was some fancy, shmancy scientific term I had never heard of before but was about to learn about. When I saw the next answer started with "C", I went back and tried "parsec". DING-DING-DING!

How that one line from Star Wars came to mind right off the bat, I have no idea.

I am not british and use UK and US -english interchangeably (sometimes in a single comment, one moment color, the other colour) Analog looks ok to me, maybe slightly better than analogue ( though I do pronounce it like that and not like -log) But the dialog actually made me cringe hahah, that just looks so wrong.

I guess I get now how it would be if it was your own language ;). I don't care much either way. But think (in normal quizzes) both ways should be accepted and anybody who is bitching about that is being childish. Both are a current and valid way of spelling things.

It did give me insecurity issues when I was younger, always so confused if it was center or centre or meter or metre letter or lettre, ow wait... :P
