I wish it was winter here and summer for you.

welcome to Atlanta where it is 100 degrees on average and the AC is broken

you should be glad.

And my favourite part of summer: Mosquitos!
These things literally drive me insane at night.

Thats not good, don't want your skin getting exposed to the boiling point of water.

I'm pretty sure that's hurr durr Fahrenheit scale, which would be like like 37 degrees Celsius.

(Why only the USA uses that scale? They are the only ones along with Belize to use that system, which is annoying)

it's not as dumb as metric vs imperial, tho. Fahrenheit represents a good range of typical outside temperatures in a 0-100 range. And Celsius is based on the freezing and boiling points of water, which isn't really less arbitrary than anything else.

although Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius, just with a different zero.

Ye ik that was the joke :P

Every time I hear someone saying a crazy number like over 60, I have to immediately think its fahrenheit. We have this guy to thank: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Gabriel_Fahrenheit

Why would such a bad system be in use?

too bad I can't get used to Celsius now. thanks dumb american schools

why must we be so 'different' >_>

I can actually read both temperatures.

I know that 40 degrees is really hot in California, but it also means the upper 90s too.

I kinda just forced a switch to Celsius, and that's my reward.

Yep. And even in winter in California it gets hot by midday.

There's like, a pool near the apartment I live in, and yet I can't go there. Ugh.

It's been miserably hot where I live for weeks now and it looks like it will finally be cooling down in a few days. I hate summer.

Also, on the topic of measuring systems and such: I personally believe we should all use metric for weights and measures and Fahrenheit for temperatures, although I can see the advantages of Celsius/Kelvin for things like scientific study and Imperial measurements for casual use. Thankfully I know both systems pretty well (that's what happens when you move across half the continent seven times by age 15), so conversions aren't quite as inconvenient for me as they are for others.

also, don't say America, it's only USA :P


South America countries all use the metric system :P

Meh, I prefer the Fahrenheit scale, but I like the metrics system better. Good thing they actually taught us that in school. :P I have no idea how to Celsius, lol

USA and Belize and Liberia. Too stubborn, I guess. I don't know.

The USA is also one of only two countries (the other is Eritrea) who require their citizens to pay taxes to them even if those citizens are living outside the country.

from what i've heard it's because converting all the signs and such would have cost billions the government didn't feel like spending

not like that's a good excuse anyway, considering what government money is being spent on nowadays


send me your terrible userbars and such to advertize in my footer ;^)

on the other hand, shit would be a whole fuckton easier if everybody used the same system, be it metric or nonsense-imperial

what is that country even

The U.S makes us pay taxes for bullshit things like that Iran Nuke Deal that was about the worse deal ever made

anyway, the results of my 6 days in this place so far:

* I already started tanning. my skin has a visible color difference, not much tho.

* mosquito bites. not a lot, tho.


maybe I can get actual tan if I keep exposing myself to actual summer weather for longer than the typical two-week vacations.

or maybe I will just get sunburnt. This skin is nerd-white :P

Oh where are you from? I had a similar experience in my life, 14 flights from/to Argentina - Canada. It's pretty tough, though here in Canada the metric system is mostly used, so I got lucky.

Here it's mostly people in construction that use the Imperial system, scientists and engineers use metric. I'm pretty sure that is the case in USA too.
