@adactio I find the fahrenheit scale is useful when its hot, and centigrade when it's cold...

@adactio 100 is terribly hot. 0 is terribly cold. 32 is freezing. 70 is a perfect sunny day.

@adactio we use random numbers to confuse foreigners with more intelligent temp measurement.

@adactio Don't you use a weight scale based on rocks?

@adactio That should give you a slight feeling how a german feels in britain with inches, yards, stones and gallons. :)

@adactio We are way into horsepower here. We also measure masculinity by it.
