I know that sentiment about converting wholly to the Metric System runs pretty high around here. I however believe that unless something drastic happens (i.e. country has been taken control of by China) conversion won’t come to pass for a looong time.
However, I am not against the system with the STRONG exception to the Celsius temperature scale. If someone said it’s 30 degrees outside, I would not, could not think it was warm. yet 0 was still cold. I like the fact that Fahrenheit is about twice as sensitive.
Fifty degrees is NOT enough to separate summer from winter for me. I need ALL ninety of them!
If for some strange reason this contry sucessfully converted to Metric, is there any good reason to dump trusty old Fahrenheit.
