I don't blame the instructor at all. The day I got my permit, I had never driven before. Except dirtbikes, motorcycles and quads, but that isn't the same.
I still drove perfectly fine with no instructor, just my mother.

Then I guess you're a talented driver then. I couldn't drive for shit the first day I drove a car. The car was extremely hard to control and I had a very difficult time trying to turn without almost hitting a curb. If the instructor had taken me out to the streets the first time, I'd like to imagine I would be in the same situation as the student in this gif. Not everyone drives like a professional when they get their permit, some people learn faster than others and just because you do learn faster doesn't automatically make everyone else who doesn't a retard.

Well, both sides of my family loved cars and my dad was a drag racer for a while.
So it's kinda in my blood, I also picked up on dirtbikes and quads fast, got used to clutches faster than a lot of my friends and stuff.
So I think it's just a part of me, kinda.

practicality is subjective, people who grew up with Celsius will argue that it is more practical than Fahrenheit and vice-versa. Plus at 0 degrees fahrenheit, brine is cooled, so it's pretty much the equivalent to a pot of water being frozen at 0 degrees centigrade. Sure that 100 degrees F is the average human body temp. Regardless, the scale is now usually defined by two fixed points: the temperature at which water freezes into ice is defined as 32 degrees, and the boiling point of water is defined to be 212 degrees, so nowadays it doesn't take into account none of this human nonsense, it is a scientific measure, used for mainly scientific purposes.

I think I misunderstood your argument. I meant I prefer a temperature scale that is based more around human temperatures than purely scientific. And of course it is subjective for people born in a certain country, but I'm arguing for an objective better temperature scale assuming there are no biases.

"Large Majority"
Only in USA. Yet again, it depends on where you're from.

for your last part that is true, but sadly, or luckily since I never learned Fahrenheit, the world is biased no matter where you go and therefor that objectively practicality will never be reality.

yet the term 'everyday use' is very subjective depending on where the person is from, and since a large majority of people use celsius as everyday use, it is much more practical to use around other people.
Sure it might be more effective for americans to use it as everyday use, but that is pretty much the only country, and a few others, where it is used for everyday use. Go outside these countries and this practically of everyday use won't mean much, when people can't understand what you mean.

Just because a large majority of people use it, doesn't automatically make it more practical. The reason why most people use the temperature scale they have is because they are forced to use it in a country where the temperature scale is already deeply established.

I'll make it more clear, I'm arguing whether fahrenheit is more objectively practical in a country with no biases.

why would you want a temperature scale made for humans? the main use for temperature scales is scientific, where using Fahrenheit would be innappropriate
User avatar
#107 - decayingapple (06/02/2015) [-]
I want a temperature scale made for humans because I'm human. Not everyone is a scientist. I just want an accurate temperature scale that measures how hot it is going to be for ME and not how hot it is going to be for a pot of water. I feel like Fahrenheit does that well being more accurate and pragmatic in its numbers.

"Fahrenheit is way more practical for everyday use"
Only in very few countries though.
If you went to most other countries, the general public wouldn't be able to understand what you mean with your numbers in the fahrenheit-system, making it much less practical to use in terms of the whole world.
Sure it is more practical in selected small areas of the world, but only in those areas.

#74 - decayingapple (06/02/2015) [-]
Well obviously it would be less practical in countries that don't use it because it has been already been established in those countries. That applies to the other way too, if people living in the states also moved to other countries, it would also be hard to get used to the celsius-system.

I'm not arguing about the temperature scale preferences in a country. I'm arguing about which temperature scale is more practical for everyday use.
