"I still hate the adoption of the metric system and continue to change temps from Celcius to Farenhiet in my head. "
A friend solved the problem for me when she taught me this poem:
Thirty is hot
Twenty is pleasing
Ten is not
Zero is freezing
I never bother to try to convert when thinking about weather or air temp. Does it really matter if it is 62 or 63, 84 or 85 degrees outside? You have a general idea how to dress for the weather. Who really needs to know precise temps, unless baking or doing lab experiments?
That poem is terrific. Thank you.
I'll now stop doing all that arithmetic in my head.......
You're right. I don't need to know if it is 65 vs. 63 degrees.
