No math needed.
I don't like Farnheit very much.
Celsius is simpler for day to day life. The difference between 20° and 21° Celsius is a lot more meaningful than the difference between 60° and 61° Fahrenheit.
@C BOT, I know, right?!
@I Are Lebo, 0°C is freezing, 100°C is boiling, and I don't know what the fahrenheit ones are because they're random numbers.
@C BOT, Freezing is 32 F and boiling is.... When there is bubbles
@C BOT, that's because America is the land of the free. Free to make random numbers the freezing and boiling points!
@I Are Lebo, American maths is confusing, no wonder all my American mates have worse memories of school than I have
@I Are Lebo, Psh peasants. Kelvin is the one true scale.
@TheOfficialKnightVision, exactly. A lot of Americans like to brag about their space exploits and how it was all done via the Imperial system.
My response is "imagine how much faster and better you'd have done if you were using Metric."
@I Are Lebo, all the scientists in America use the metric system.
@Smart Deathclaw, not all...nasa uses imperial sometimes because they are stupid. One of the Mars landers was destroyed, because they did the calculations in feet, but programmed the system in meters. So it fired rockets to start slowing down when it was like 500 feet above the ground, instead of 500 meters, and it crashed into the ground and was destroyed
@talmet, I didn't say all.
@Smart Deathclaw, actually you did
@qzw444, I thought I deleted that word. Whoops. You got me there.
@TheOfficialKnightVision, Actually the British started the system, and when America was founded in the late 1700s it just took on the system. America still uses the system just because it is easier to change, but for scientific events or international items, US citizens and the government distributes information in the Metric System, or the S.I. system to be specific. The important thing to know about the Conventional System is that NOTHING is proportionate. 16 in an inch, 12 inches in a foot, 3 feet in a yard. The only reason it is done this way is because as oppose to the metric system, which is based on scientific measurements, the Conventional System was based on body measurements (and inch I'd about the width of your thumb, a yard is from your nose to your left arm spread to the left, straight etc.)
@I Are Lebo, I will submit that the metric System is superior but Fahrenheit is much more precise
@I Are Lebo, As an american the imperial system is a b!tch when you need to convert. Even when convert within the imperial system. The metric system is much easier
@C BOT, how it is done is 0 Fahrenheit is the freezing temperature of sea water and 0 Celsius is the freezing point of freshwater
@Nick Cage Addict, it's more precise than we need, without the ability to measure by feel.
Meaning nobody is like "wow it's warm out. It's gotta be like 57°"
@The 15th Doctor, I wasn't aware that sea water is capable of freezing. Icebergs are made of fresh water.
After all, the Atlantic is so cold you freeze to death in under two minutes, and it doesn't freeze.
@The 15th Doctor, you are incorrect. Ocean water freezes at 28.4 degrees Fahrenheit.
@I Are Lebo, it's because you didn't grow up using metric. Fahrenheit is more than twice as accurate than Celsius, plus I would rather have three forths of an inch than 2.43 centimeters, or whatever the translation is. metric is good for large scale. Imperial is good for small.
@i am sand , I grant you that Imperial is easier for small measurements than metric. You can't really look at a pole and be able to tell by eye whether it's twenty millimetres thick and fifty centimetres long, or twenty five millimetres thick and fifty five centimetres long.
Metric is more accurate than Imperial. Sometime more so than is necessary.
Speaking of which, Fahrenheit IS more accurate than Celsius. Moreso than is often useful. When it comes to measuring the temperature of food, go with Fahrenheit. When wanting to know the temperature of the weather outside, go with Celsius.
And I did grow up using Metric, I'm Canadian. Just FYI. 🇨🇦
@I Are Lebo, I think there is pros and cons to both sides, but really, it doesnt matter what side you're on, does it? like coke or pepsi
@i am sand , I dislike both Coke and Pepsi. I think they taste like acid.
@i am sand , but I get your point.
@I Are Lebo, same here. I hate both
@i am sand , I also dislike sand. It's coarse, and rough, and irritating. And it gets everywhere.
Don't care... Merica!
@ComedyPro, here in Merica we use freedom units!
I'll validate this one. I'll let you guys know if this one is true, currently booking a flight to Europe.
I just got back from Europe and can confirm
@Allthemidichlorians, Canada is full already. With Moose, hockey, syrup, poutine, become people!
@Thefqisthis, Bacon **** but I guess Become works too :/
It's easy. Every Celsius degree is 1.8 degrees in Fahrenheit. And it's 32 lower on the scale.
@RainbowDragon, an easier way to convert celsius to farenheight in your head is to times by 2 and add 30, easier numbers to work with and you get roughly the same answer :)
I use both cuz I'm gangsta like that.
(F at home, C at work)
Multiply by 1.8 and add 32
Subtract 32 and divide by 1.8, not too hard to get rough figures from that
Or moving to Canada, a lot easier than moving from USA to Europe (but please don't move to canada)
Degrees are definitely in Fahrenheit
Or anywhere else
I mean, that sounds twice as hard, I'll just look it up on google.
@Carl Jenkins , that's what she said
