“I wish they'd have given those temperature readings in metric so we in the rest of the world who take science seriously could understand them too.”

“Hey, come on now!

The USA is part of " The Big Three " that still use the imperial system

Yep, we are gonna change the world and return to:

Pounds
Ounces
Gills
Drams
Fluidrams
Pints
Chains
Rods
Grains
Advoirdupois
Inches
Feet
eights, sixteenths, thirty seconds of an Inch
Farenheit
Fathoms
Miles
Yards
Links

This is a much 'easier' system to use than that base 10 metric stuff. Someday the whole world will see how 'right' we are”

“If you took science seriously, you would have been able to convert that in your head with very good accuracy.”

“Is it that hard to convert? If you take science so seriously, you would know the translation. I will convert for you. 135 below zero converted to metric is " colder than a witch's xxx "”

“This has been said since the early 1970s. I know you haven't quite grown up enough yet to get out of your parent's basement, but we had weather back then too. It was hot in the summer and cold in the winter. We had hurricanes and tornados and sometimes it didn't rain for weeks and weeks. It's a language thing. Something you wouldn't understand.

Go ask you parents. I'm sure they can explain the difference between weather and climate.”
