It's supposed to get down to 67 tonight. No - not bullshitting you. 67 freezing degrees.

We might have face eating zombies and intruders that masturbate all over your trailer, but Florida weather rules.

Yeah, keep telling yourself that when the next hurricane hits or on a lovey summer day when the humidity is nearly as high as the temperature.

Nope, sorry...some nice warm days in winter don't make up for the suckage-tude that is Florida weather.

wow. 81. that is pretty damn hot. Water boils at 100... oh wait. you are talking American. nm.

what do USA - Liberia and Burma have in common. The only countries on the planet that arent on the metric system.

Oh yes, the "horrible" scale that has below 0 as dangerous to your life, above 100 as dangerous for your life, and anything in the middle as being comfortable. We should ban that.

Celcius at below -17.7 as dangerous, above 37.7 as dangerous for your life, and comfortable being roughly 7.2 to 32.2 is so much easier to work with.

First cold front of the year.


What calendar are you on?

Where I live, (Earth, Northern Hemisphere) the first cold front of the year was back in January.

lol you call that a cold front? Try -40. (it's the same in Celsius and Fahrenheit) Now that is real December/January/February weather. :p Though this year it's been super hot, we barely even have any snow. We got a couple cm a few weeks back and it's actually mostly melted because of how warm it's been.

Sucks for lot of industries right now. It's only -4C right now, that's 25F. Record high for this day is 37F and low is -27F.

I went over to Idaho to pick up a used 5th wheel trailer last week. Temps were 22 or so on the way over, and started to dip down as I got closer. I get there and have to inspect this trailer outside and it is -3 F the whole time. It was the lowest temperature of the 3 days, and it had to be when I had to be outside. So you know what to do with your 67.

Water freezes at 0 and boils at 100. Below 0 is cold, above 0 is not. Not sure I understand your complaint?

Is the correct answer that all three are paradises?

Pussies. Spent the winter of 1993, hungry and cold, double digits below zero, under artillery fire, fighting for a mountain peak no one gave a fuck about 3 years later, firing a few rounds at the enemy once in a while then hug the barrel for it's heat.

Canadians get my respect, fellow countrymen that immigrated to Canadia reported that climates "are just like back home". Floridians, Californians and other pussified members need a sub forum of their own to discuss the warmth they wrongfully perceive as cold.

I bought a heated vest for my motorcycle so I can keep riding it to work when temps get down into the low 50s like they have been recently. :cool:

At a certain purity, certain air pressure, certain level of container surface texture, and certain level of motion then water freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C. But for all practical purposes, water generally does not freeze at 0°C or boil at 100°C. For example, water can stay liquid down to -48°C with no nuclei to initiate the transition. Or for example, the scientifically agreed upon melting point is -0.0001°C (not 0°C) and triple point is 0.01°C (not 0°C). Not to mention the probability of you actually having the right air pressure to get 100°C boiling is slim to none unless you have a very controlled lab. So your 0 to 100 scale idea is already wrong.

To live as a human, you don't need to know that temperature water freezes or boils. Water transition points are quite possibly one of the most silly and useless bases of temperature for the vast majority of humans.

Fahrenheit isn't much better than Celsius. But at least, for the vast majority of people, knowing the air temperature is between 0°F and 100°F means that they'll live to see the next day without shelter. And, for the vast majority of purposes, you don't need decimal points with Fahrenheit. And almost all people need to know that above 100°F means that you are probably sick. So Fahrenheit has definite advantages for almost every single person over Celsius. But, neither are 0 at the coldest possible temperature, so both Fahrenheit and Celsius are doomed to many incorrect calculations in science.

Water has high heat capacity. You really should consider visiting a local swamp.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metrication


"Some sources now identify Liberia as metric and in Burma it was announced in 2013 that the country is preparing to adopt the metric system."



2 liter soda, not quart
60 watt lightbulb, not horsepower
325mg aspirin, not millislugs or ounces
2000cc engine, not cubic inches
9mm rounds, not inches

It's already here, watching, waiting.

Been warm here too. Only dipped below freezing a dozen or so days so far. Next week or so is all above zero too. Mild winter.

Lol wtf? That's your justification for liking f and not liking c? Weak!

Also how do you define dangerous? Water freezes at 0c. At -17.7c your skin would freeze in minutes if exposed. Between 0 and -17.7c is a sliding scale of danger. And 37.7c is fucking hot.

I call shenanigans on every bit of this post.

Yeah C is much better. Water is a rather universal chemical, if I can even call it that, so a measurement unit based on it's freezing point and boiling point makes a lot of sense. From there you can easily know what is hot or cold. When someone posts something in fahrenheit you need to make a conversion to even know if it's hot or cold, because it's not really based on anything common.

-40C = freaking cold, tabarnac
-30C = freaking cold but slightly less worse than -40
-20C = pretty cold
-10C = pretty nice
0C = Nice out, snow is melting, things get messy and slushy
10C = almost time for shorts
20C = really nice out, great day for the beach
30C = freaking hot out, just stay inside with A/C turned on till the heat wave is over
40C = Don't even consider opening a window or door, seriously.

Funny, I think fahrenheit is far more relatable to how temperature actually feels. 0- cold, 100- hot. 40-75 nice. Things are represented on scales of 0-100 all the time. -17 to +37, not so much.

100C is inconceivable because I've never dunked myself in boiling water, and 0C doesn't really feel all that cold, especially with winter clothes.

Let me tell you about Centigrade. They use it in aviation and it's a PITA having to convert all the time while in the Sim.

Fahrenheit is a much more usable scale for telling the weather, Celsius is better for scientific reports.

For example:

-50c - extremely cold
0C - fairly cold
50C - extremely hot
100C - dead
150C - dead(er?)

-50F - extremely cold
0F - really cold
50F - mild, a bit chilly
100F - really hot
150F - extremely hot, borderline unbearable

0C to 100C ranges (weather temperature wise) from fairly cold to dead. 0F to 100F ranges from really cold to really hot.
