    I'm trying to understand how to use Celsius so I set the weather app to Celsius
    I understand it, but I have a biology degree and worked in a chemical lab for 11 years. All of the measurements used SI units.

    I don't get it why US still uses non-standard measurements. It's like, the rest of the world uses the same units, and only you guys have some weird system, weird to us at least.
    The UK uses weird measurements for their beer. Beer is sold in Imperial Pints, which are different from US pints.

    British thermal units, do we "Queen" foot pounds for force?

    What I do know is that water freezes at 0C which makes more sense than 32F

    The British gallon is different than the US one. I believe the mile may be different as well...

    The US basically has it's own measurements...

    Saying that the UK can't seem to let go of the mile, which is frustrating as everything else is metric. Oh and their weight system still uses 'stone' for some unknown reason.

    Metric system all works together. First it starts off with defining the metre. Check the wiki for that as I'm not explaining it...

    The metre is than used as a bassis for other measurements.

    Than with weight and temperature it's all water based. Zero is when water freezes and 100C is when it boils.

    For weight what happens is that you take 0.1m and cube it. The volume is than filled with water and that weight is the kilogram. The liquid volume is equal to 1 litre.

    As you can see it all works together. That's why anyone used to the metric system finds the US one bonkers.

    I have a Boddingtons glass that is an official Imperial pint.

    Fun fact: Both kilogram and metre measurements are based on a bar and a roller-shaped figure kept in Louvre, Paris.
    They are 90% platinum and 10% iridium.

    I'm so nerd.

    Well, Kelvins make even more sense. At least to me.
    273.16 K are equal to 0C.
    How does it makes sense? Well, it is based on absolute zero, the lowest possible temperature, as you can guess it is 0 K (-273.16C), unlike the Celsius which Rue explained previously.

    I made a program to calculate that. Long story short I think kelvin is complicated :p

    Nothing wrong with not liking some music. I wouldn't call Tool old rock though...

    I just was recently reminded of another group I liked back in the 90s. Look up Skunk Anansie if you want something a little different.

    I woke up early and I'm getting the earlier train. I don't mind as it allows me to leave work earlier.

    I lived in a complex like that once. It was horrible with all the noise and the scaffolding blocking the view.

    At least I had a place to sleep, cook and toilet. My current house has none of that at this moment. :/

    So my supervisor scheduled me off today when she shouldn't have (*facepalm*). So while i should take advantage of the mistake, there are some patients i do need to follow up with, so I'm headed into work.
