    The standard ICAO atmosphere has a pressure of 29.92 inches of mercury
    (mercury barometers were the standard way to measure atmospheric
    pressure), 1013.2 millibars which is the same as 1013.2 hectopascals.
    
    As another example of idiocy, there is an online converter website that
    coverts hectopascals to millibars. You just type in the hectopascal
    value in one box and it shows the equivalent millibar value in the other
    box as you type. Of course, they are the same!
