Americans: we’re gonna use Fahrenheit where 0 degrees is really cold and 100 degrees is really hot so 40-60 degrees is okay weather. It’s just like we’re counting up from 0 to 100 and the closer we get to 100 the warmer/hotter the weather.  

Rest of the world: wtf??? Americans are so dumb that makes no sense??? 0 degrees is okay weather and 100 degrees means you’re dead!! Dumb Americans with their counting up from 0 method how ignorant and stupid they all are lets constantly post about it

interesting note: the fahrenheit system IS probably the best system of temperature measurement to use for weather, because (as it says in the above post) the scale is basically 0 = really cold and 100 = really hot. so, the fahrenheit scale is based around how humans feel the temperature.

celsius, in contrast, is based around how WATER reacts to temperature. 0C is the freezing point of water, and 100C is the boiling point of water. it would be useful to use celsius on ovens and stoves, and in refrigerators/freezers but it’s not really optimized to measure outside temperature when talking about weather.

neither is kelvin. don’t measure the outside temp in kelvin.

Fahrenheit: people

Celsius: water

Kelvin: nerds
