Canada is a bit conflicted about metric tho. Might reverse Benedict.

Ah, Game Of Thrones always taught us to not trust the North. Rings true in real life as well!

I like Celsius just because you know anything negative is cold XD
honestly as a "scientist" I prefer Kelvin because 0 is 0.
I was taught a quick basic conversion for C to F, double and add 30. you get close enough for most things.

I like celsius because its what I grew up with and learnt, so makes a lot more sense to me.

Anything below 0 may be cold, but y'all look at 20 and think "warm"? Really? How often do you need to know the boiling point of water in every day Life? Freaking never. And i get using celcius for science, but it just does not help for your average joe. and as you point out, it's much better to use Kelvin then anyway!

And your map is incorrect Vacant my friend, because there are still countries in Africa and Asia that use imperial. And don't sit up on that British high horse either! I know you people can't commit to either system of measurements! You just opted for a bastard child of the two!

And while we're there, y'all measure weight in increments of 14 pounds! That makes so much less sense than anything we use in America! At least base 12 is a thing! (And arguably better than base 10, if we could commit to it)

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF

So, I may of gotten the two best books of all time at the used book store today.



A philosophy book about...Spider-Man written by like college profs and...the Finnish translation of the Jehovah's Witness Bible, complete with colour photos. Not much more needs to be said I think.

might as well start practicing identifying real people from fake. I hate the future.

It was fun and worth practicing the “I can see the souls in people” idea.
