Jesus Christ, americans are so confusing. In Celsius, 0 is when water freezes, 100 is whern water boils, 36 is normal human temperature. Kelvin is 273 degrees lower than celcius at all times (i think).

Farenheit, on the other hand, confuses the **** out of me.

Silly americans.

Actually... no. Farenheit only confuses you because you don't understand why it's the way it is. Sure, with Celcius the freezing and boiling point of water are nice and even, but the more compressed unit causes fractions to come into play much more. The way F was designed was to eliminate fractions as much as possible (because they are a btich for computers and people alike to deal with). The units go 0 - freezing point of brine; 32 - freezing point of water; 98 - human body temperature; and 212 - boiling point of water. Celcius is used in all sciences in the US because it's great for chemistry. However, Farenheit is preferrable (and designed explicitly for) the average person to use in everyday life.

We like it this way, thus it never changed for us. Apparently 300,000,000 people in the world (plus Canada and a few other American countries, also the UK will occasionally use it) disagree with the concept of Celcius superiority, so it's obviously not superior.

Don't mind the red thumbs. But I do like to point out the fact that Europeans love to feel superior to Americans. I know, a great many of them aren't like that, and are great people, but I always feel like they have some smug elitist feeling over Americans most of the time. As you can see here, they've been red thumbing me for pointing out facts. The Eurofag thing barely grabbed any attention. And someone even support my counter for Canada being both as well. Just look at every single other person's comment who defended the Farenheit/America - Red thumbs out the asshole. So yeah, just elitist assholes, I don't care if they're mad about it.

Psst. The "accepted standard" for body temperature isn't just 98 degrees Fahrenheit.
It's 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

98.6 - 32 = 66.6
66.6 * 5/9 = 37

Body temperature is 37 degrees Celsius.

Actually it's 36.6 C.

And if you want to be real scientific - The body temperature isn't constant, so giving it a constant is just rediculous. It fluctuates from around 100F to around 96F (guesstimates).

Well, every estimate I've ever seen or heard for the standard body temperature (I know it isn't constant) is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Which equals 37 degrees Celsius. Plus, when I google "body temperature" it says 37 degrees Celsius. (Once again, I know it isn't really constant, and giving it a standard is ridiculous).

Absolute freeezing point is -273 degrees Celsius and 0 Kelvin.

Water's boiling temperature is 100 Celsius and 373 Kelvin.
They are the same scale, Celsius is just offset for more convenient everyday use.

I never understood Fahrenheit.. Water boils at 214 or something, right? That's all I know.

The conversion for Celsius to Fahrenheit is
(x+40)*(9/5)-40
and the other way is
(x+40)*(5/9)-40
so that would mean water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit

Yes, because we really have the goddamn option. Do you understand what we'd have to do to actually shift to metric? Years of manuals, text books, scientific documents, various forums of media. We'd have to reeducate a population of 300 million who have been using Imperial Units since birth. We can't just magically flick a switch and go, "Oh, yeah, we're using SI now". My god. It works well enough, we understand it, and thats all that really matters. Shut up and stick to your metric and stop commenting on ours, because we really don't go out of our way to insult yours.

Well, human body is a very complex organism made out of ******** of different kinds of of elements. This multitude of elements creates pretty large varieties between individuals. For example someone who lives in a colder zone can probably survive at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. This probably is the one that annoys me.

In Celsius you know one thing: a simple substance, water (pure H2O) freezes at exactly 0 degrees IF you have an one atmosphere pressure (1.01325 ×105 Pascals) and it boils at 100 degrees in the same conditions. There is no maybe, there is a fact.

to all you dense ************* this is the reasoning for the different degrees of temperature measurement, they are not better than one another they are just easy to use in different circumstances:
1)Fahrenheit- Great for discussing weather, almost all naturally occurring temperatures in hospitable locations are kept between 0-100 including the temp of the human body (98.6)
2)Celsius- Great for cooking with easy reference to waters boiling and freezing point (100 and 0 respectively)
3)Kelvin- Although personally i feel this ************ right here can go suck a dick, it is useful in science as no temperature is ever negative which would **** up a lot of calculations

Fahrenheit does not make sense. Its not a simple metric like Celsius or Kelvin, its not even easily interchangeable between either.

Celsius is the everyday temperature. 0 is where water freezes, 100 is where it boils. There, simple as.
Kelvin is the absolutes, its never negative because thats ******* impossible. 0 is absolute 0. No more heat, atoms stopped moving.

Cool thing between celsius and kelvin is they are interchangeable. 0 degrees celsius is 273 kelvin. 1 degree celcius is 274 kelvin. Same metric value. Unlike fahrenheit, which has no place. Its the red headed stepchild among metrics.

Yes, because I need to know the boiling point of water on a daily basis! Let's revolve our ******* whole temperature system around it! Making the gauge from 0-100 be hospitable to the human body is MUCH less convenient! Also, kelvin isn't exactly the temp in Celsius - 273. It's off by a fraction of a degree which when you talk science makes a big ******* difference.

facts:

What sauna temperatures are reached?
Before the contestant starts, the sauna is pre-heated to 110ºC, that’s already 20-30ºC higher than the average person will stay in a sauna. For those who work in Fahrenheit, that’s 212 Fahrenheit. Considering that water boils at 100ºC, you get some idea of the stress the competitors are putting their bodies through. However, saying this, sauna heat is different to the heat of the normal English summer where the sauna has a low humidity of 10-25%. This means the body can cool itself more efficiently as sweat can evaporate more easily, taking along with it the body’s heat.

A Russian guy named Vladimir Ladyzhenskiy died in a sauna. He was in 110 ºC for 16 min

Just try it yourself, every sauna can at least go to 100°C (if it isn't a crappy one).
The termometer in a sauna if often fairly high up, hence, it will show more then it really is where you would be sitting.
The steam will have cooled off a lot before it "hits" you so it wont be as hot as you think.
Plus you are not in water, if you were in water then yes you would be dead and soon be ready to be served on the dinner table, but .... bla bla bla bla CAN WE GET A SMART PERSON IN HERE TO EXPLAIN THIS ****..PLEASE?
