Cooler weather

Recommended Posts

I love the cooler, fall weather!  I'm genuinely excited that it's turning that way now.  There is nothing like going outside on a cool autumn day, and then heading inside and drinking a big cup of hot chocolate, with cream and marshmallows, and just letting that warm you up.

 

And the weather isn't the only thing changing either - some of the trees up here in northern Wisconsin have even started to turn.  I wouldn't have believed it unless I'd seen it with my own eyes.

It's my favorite season.  :smile:

 

September has been miserable so far; it's been up in the 80s every day this month, and that's really really unusual.  High in the 60s the next two days, and I'm looking forward to that, but then it's supposed to warm back up again.  I want to move somewhere it never goes above 60 degrees.  Hell, I wear t-shirts when it's snowing out if there's no wind.

Can you please just, I don't know, use the same system 95% of the world population (plus your scientific population) uses)? It would be MUCH easier.

Also, I won't mind if suddenly everyone starts using kelvin for temperature.

 

Like "I was 273 today and quite cold"

google "60 degrees Farenheit in Celsius"

 

Why should every reader do that, when one writer can do it instead?

 

 

Here's how I see things, my basic course on Celsius that I learned spending 4 months in Britain:

0 is cold.

10 is cool.

20 is nice.

30 is hot.

 

That's served me pretty well in the past. 50 in Fahrenheit would probably be about 10-12 Celsius, if I'm thinking about it correctly.  Fahrenheit is still much more intuitive, since that's what I've grown up with.

 

And I just did the calculation - it is exactly 10 Celsius.

 

It helped when I traveled to the Netherlands as well.  Because at least in Britain, distances are measured the same way they are here in the US.  The Netherlands, driving on the motorway was scary because I had no idea how far it was to anything.  The numbers meant nothing to me.

I never specified which party should do the googling :tongue: 

 

You are misrepresenting me, sir.

Same for me when looking at miles... The thing is, though, that the USA is one of VERY few countries that still uses the imperial system. I believe even in England people are switching. And in the scientific world, everyone simply uses metric. As for how far it is, a big step is 1 meter, so 1000 of them is a kilometer. If you're walking at average speed, it takes you 12 minutes to walk a kilometer.

It´s lovely to watch the leaves getting yellow, orange and red in the autumn. The air is fresh. Not fond of the rain though.

I have to add 10 to everything to understand that range.

 

 

I am weird and think 30 is nice.

You live in a warmer country, and people always adjust to what they're used to.

 

Substract 30 then divide by two to convert to Celsius.

 

Multiply by two then add 30 to do it backwards.

 

I'm pretty sure there was a 1.8 in it somewhere.

I love Fall weather.  It's about 104 here with ash falling from the sky.

 

Guessing you live near the Central Valley then... Ash fall the past few days, from many nearby fires, and lack of rain FTL  :darkone:

    • Does anyone have any recent polling from PA?
    • "Aight, just wanted to make sure you were getting your information from reputable places and not those weird right-wing nationalist websites that have a hard-on for anything South Africa to further their right-wing nationalist agenda. "   Well you might call some of the Spanish right wing newspaters weird right-wing nationalist, but since similar stories have been published in the New York Times, Washington Post, etc. I think that even fringe Leftist should admit that the SA government is engaging in rather disreputable policies.    
    • Whether material was intended remain private would arguably be a question of fact based on the facts of the particular case. Not only who takes the video/pics make a big difference but as in the actual case cited by Nolder there is a seperate question of how the deceminator of the pics got the video/pics. In the case at hand one of the participants shared a cloud account with his grilfriend. If he willingly put the pictures on the shared account I do not see how he can claim that has a valid privacy interest that has legal protection. 
    • Hmm, is not your post an Answer? 
    • He is the only one running the the Democrat Party that is even attempting to reach that subgroup and without them Democrats have to depend on record numbers of all their other constitutencies coming out.
