I just checked, and 45° Fahrenheit is about 7.2° celsius.

I mean WUT. I keep on shorts and T-shirt until it get's about 0° celsius. Is this only in Finland, or?

Congrats on the butthurt America thread

Not going to lie, fahrenheit's probably the better way to tell temperature, if only because the difference between a degree is smaller, allowing for a more accurate description of the temperature. That being said fahrenheit is still weird
#15 to #3 - anon (03/04/2012) [-]
If there were enough intelligent people in the USA we would change....sadly nothin' but dumbasses over here... :(
User avatar #4 to #3 - nintendolover (03/04/2012) [-]
fahrenheit can be fairly useful when calculating extreme temperatures. But I never really understood why Americans decided to use fahrenheit in daily life.
User avatar #11 to #4 - dementedllama (03/04/2012) [-]
Because its difficult to grasp the idea of "15 or 20 degrees" being "warm" after using Fahrenheit for so long. And now the measurement systems used here in America are so embedded in our culture, it's nearly impossible to change it, and useless to try.
#19 to #11 - anon (03/04/2012) [-]
I don't think that's true. Canada only switched to metric somewhere near the mid 70's wasn't it? It had a bit of trouble catching on at first but now I know lot's of people who don't even know how much a gallon is or what the Fahrenheit boiling temperature of water is.

America tried it too, didn't catch on. I don't see what the big deal is anyway. I'm sorry we're culturally different?

Complete ******** you're talking mister lurker. But I like your reply though.
'Because its difficult to grasp the idea of "15 or 20 degrees" being "warm" after using Fahrenheit for so long.'
That's what you said. What it sounded like was something like this: 'I'm an americunt and i don't like to change what i already know. nag nag nag. I'm just too lazy to keep up with the world and their ways of doing things like using Celcius degrees instead of Fahrenheit and the meter instead of a foot.'

The metric system is an international decimalised system of measurement that was originally based on the mètre des archives and the kilogramme des archives introduced by France in 1799. Over the years the definitions of the metre and kilogram have been refined and the metric system extended to incorporate many more units. Although a number of variants of the metric system emerged in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the term is now often used as a synonym for the "International System of Units" - the official system of measurement in almost every country in the world. -Wikipedia, metric system

Since you're such a 'big, powerful, best nation in the world' country, wouldn't it be wise to follow the rest of the world for a time?

Obviously no offense of course.

>Implying most of us don't know the metric system.
>Implying our scientific community doesn't utilize the metric system.
>Implying our schools don't teach us the metric system.

If you don't understand our culture, don't rag on it. Our public schools do teach us the metric system. Most of us know how to use both minus the usage of Celsius. Doesn't mean all of us don't. Many of us still do know how to use Celsius as well as Fahrenheit.

Our scientific community ONLY uses the metric system. What's so difficult to grasp about us using a different system for our day to day uses? The important matters, we use metric system so everyone can understand. AKA, our science and math communities.

Has anyone ever ******* told you that our measuring system was superior? **** no. We're comfortable with it and see no reason to change. Doesn't mean it's better, in many cases it's worse. But we still know how to use the universally understood measurements, just not for general public usage.

Your last point shows your ignorance. Follow the rest of the world? First off. Most cultures, nowadays, do follow mainstream culture. But, each culture is a bit different. That's just hypocritical saying one country isn't following the rest of the world for a few small infringements when every country is the same in that regard. We all have differences.

"Obviously no offense of course". Know what's funny? Idiots who write that usually mean to give offense. "Oh you're such a dick, no offense". It is a futile and juvenile attempt to steer blame and anger away from one. Either that, or the person is attempting to troll.

Either way, you're filled with ******** . You call a country out for something they do differently even though, when it matters, they still do things "the right way".

If you still don't understand: WE, as in the United States of America, DO use the metric system.

Take your superiority complex elsewhere.

I don't know if you meant to do this but i'm not even American and i feel greatly offended by what you just said Americans aren't ******* lazy they have been using this system for a long time. And you can make a similar argument against the tradition the British use in court to wear powdered wigs. Don't be an intolerant **** .

One simple answer my friend, one simple answer. They are American. Everything has to go THEIR way. THERE, i spelled that **** correct.

You think we don't want to change it? I live in California and I think the Fahrenheit system is **** . We never use it in schools because it's so random. It's not like we can suddenly just decide to change the standard temperature system as a country because the average citizen has no say in the matter and politicians/scientists are too busy to care about something like this.
#173 to #5 - anon (03/05/2012) [-]
you know you could have used "they're" instead of "they are" before "american" to enforce your point more
User avatar #181 to #4 - jubnik (03/05/2012) [-]
fahrenheit is actually better than celcius in everyday life because say a weatherman is doing his report. The range of tempratures he is going to say in fahrenheit is about 0 to 105 in most of america. but if he was using celisus he would say anywhere between -15 to 40. this means that fahrenheit is not only more acurate due to the increase in numbers available but also it doesnt use negative numbers

>Completely funny and true comic
>Focus on the fact that it's in Fahrenheit not Celsius
>Constant complaining about how America doesn't accept other cultures
