 Dec 21 2004, 1:59 pm In response to Artekia Thanks...I never knew -40 degrees Farenheit was the same as -40 degrees Celsius.
 Dec 21 2004, 3:42 pm In response to Hell Ramen Or, if you're going to use Google, you might as well get it to do the calculation for you: http://www.google.com/search?q=100+Fahrenheit+in+Celsius Nice, eh? =)

Thanks anyways. =/
 Dec 21 2004, 8:46 pm In response to Hell Ramen Oh, right. =) Still, it's a useful feature to know about. Personally I think everyone should use Celsius, it's a much more practical scale... but the U.S. never listens to me. ;-P
 Dec 22 2004, 2:30 am In response to Crispy Yeah, I've been trying to too. :( It's hard too. Go us!
 Dec 22 2004, 3:30 am I believe the equations were: F = (9/5)C + 32 C = (5/9)F - 32 F = Farenheit C = Celcius
 Dec 22 2004, 5:34 am In response to JackGuy Using Celsius is easier, it's less numbers before you die.
 Dec 22 2004, 6:21 am In response to Crispy Not to mention, wth is up with them saying a thousand million is a billion. It's like saying a million is the same as ten thousand. It should clearly be a billion is a million million, it's just a way for them to claim "Yeah we have more billionares than you" >_>
 Dec 22 2004, 6:26 am In response to DeathAwaitsU I see your point, but it's easier to add 3 naughts to the end of something (and easier to read) - 1000000 to 1000000000, than six naughts - 1000000 to 1000000000000. Besides, 100 100s isn't 1000000 is it?
 Dec 22 2004, 6:41 am In response to DeathAwaitsU As far as I know, one thousand million IS a billion. 1,000 x 1,000,000 = 1,000,000,000. Hrm... maybe I'm just misunderstanding your comment.  Ah, now I understand what you're saying. Looked up the definition of "billion" just to check. Seems you guys take a meaning closer to it's root, with the bi- portion doubling the million. So is a trillion 10^18 for you guys?

 Dec 22 2004, 6:46 am In response to DeathAwaitsU Heh. Well no wonder it's all screwwy, both of those were designed in France :)

 Dec 22 2004, 8:33 am In response to Elation I'll have you know that most of my family herritage is French :P By the way, lovely joke. :D
 Dec 22 2004, 9:23 am In response to Igmolicious I like Fahrenheit because, well, the lower degrees are code. I mean, WTF, -2 Celsius is sort of warm? I know Celsius is easily measured...but, I dunno'.
 Dec 22 2004, 9:27 am In response to Hell Ramen -2 Celsius is below freezing...
 Dec 22 2004, 9:28 am In response to Igmolicious Yeah. 0 C, water freezes. 100 C, water boils. IT'S THAT EASY! (and it's that reason why I stick with it, never mind living in a country with that system...)

These are the proper functions, preserving order of operations: Celsius = (5/9) * (Fahrenheit - 32) Fahrenheit = ((9/5) * Celsius) + 32
