I thought of this as I was reading the "Snow" thread. What system of measurement do you use from day to day for talking about temperature?

I use Celsius when talking about computers, and Fahrenheit when talking about anything else. I tend to "think" in C when talking about computers as well. I know 70C is hot for a computer, but if you tell me it's 120F I'd have to do the math and tell you if that's hot for a certain part or whatever. It's just the opposite for outdoors.

Since some people might be like me, as a rule of thumb select whichever system you use for measuring the weather.

I always use C, no matter what the subject is. I never had any need for K and F.


Huh yeah, whatever ^^

I use Fahrenheit, just because I live in America and we're too backwards to use what the rest of the civilized world does. I do use Celsius for computer temperature readings, though.

I don't think anyone really uses Kelvin for anything practical.

I've always been taught in school to use C.

Celsius, nobody in their right mind uses Fahrenheit around here.

Adding 273,15 to every temperature is also quite impractical unless you are using temperatures near the absolute zero, so I probably haven't used Kelvin since my last physics course.


something to believe.

I use Fahrenheit for common use, just because it's what I was raised to understand best, although I'd like to start using Celsius more, so I'll be able to relate to foreigners better.

Realistically I use Fahrenheit, because anyone around here I talk to using Celsius would just get confused. I did, however, just change my weather plugin to read in Celsius so I can get used to it more. Honestly, though, all the negative numbers just make me feel colder. x.X
