What they say to kids who want pets:Are you sure you're not just saying you want one because all your friends have one? Remember, it's not going to be small and cute forever, it will grow up eventually! It's a living being that will depend entirely on you for the rest of its life. Are you really sure you're ready for this?
What they say to adults who DON'T want kids:Oh, you'll want one sooner or later. Everybody does, after all. Besides, babies are soooo cute, aren't they? You'd better hurry up before you get too old!
I will never switch to Celcius for temperature. It just isn’t as practical as Fahrenheit.
Fahrenheit uses 32-212 in relation to water boiling. That is a range of 180 whole numbers vs 100 in Celcius. That means Fahrenheit has a finer ranger of whole numbers for the same curve. That’s almost double the whole numbers in the same range. So where you would have to go to decimals with Celcius I can just stick with quick whole numbers in Fahrenheit. And if you want to get finer, you can still go to decimals in Fahrenheit.
Also the Fahrenheit system was developed in the early 1700s. It was based on what temperature brine froze at (0 degree / salt water) and what the observable average human body temperature was (100). 212 just happens to be the temperature at which normal water changes phases to a case with those criteria as the 0-100.
So please stop saying it’s some made up scale that makes no sense. As someone who uses data acquisition on an almost daily basis that revolves around numerous units of input, Fahrenheit makes sense.
it’s whatever. both of them make sense depending on which one you use often. plus, you can’t say “below zero” without celsius.
