We NYC folks complain about the weather, no matter what precip or temp. However, my brother in Grand Forks, North Dakota, comments that when the temperature gets up to minus 5 (F) that they're having a heat wave!

Those are friggin' hilarious!

+32 degrees

Lake Superior's water gets thicker.

Gets thicker? LMFBO

You know, I'm really weak in math...but does anyone know why when you get below zero when comparing F to C that the values are different than when you compare them above zero?

For example, while flying back into country this time, at one point I was looking at the flight data on the little TV screen and it showed something like, Temp- -45F/-42C They shouldn't be so friggin' close together!!!

Right!!! How is that possible?? Is this some kind of new String Theory math or something?

In my world, a static conversion should convert both ways....that should be the rule from now on.

F=C(1.8) + 32

so

C= (F - 32) / 1.8

A temp difference of 1 degree F is equal to 0.556 degrees C... Math can be funny sometimes :)
