well the good thing about celsius is for water, the freezing/boiling point are so easy to figure out. 0/100, as opposed to 32/212. i mean come on...212? how random.

i'm sure if i only used celsius, i'd figure out quickly what's hot. i know once it's in the 30s, that means it's getting warm. and 40s is just unbearable.

Yep. And since I can't even tan, I just get nasty, horrible sunburn and suffer. To hell with summer!

Wow, I am so far behind. Ranting is time-consuming!

I don't know the names of all their albums... I'm told Listen Like Thieves is very good, and I'd also like the one that has Suicide Blonde on it, if that's not it. But I want to get everything eventually... I'm happy to leave it to your judgement

Thank you!!

You're an idiot if you think that. Anybody who doesn't convert to metric is an impractical idiot, really. There's no logical reason NOT to use metric. 0 is freezing, 100 is boiling. How more simple and clear do you want? I mean, 32 as freezing? What kind of fucking sense does that make?

No wonder people think Americans are backward; they still cling to an outdated, illogical, worthless measurement system.

I hate being anywhere else in the US really because I've lived on such a huge lake all my life. And I see all these little lakes around and I just look at them and sigh and call them "Posers"

< Lake Hater.

32 = Freezing 212 = Boiling, not so much.
Fair enough. Is it really that important to know when it is freezing and when it is boiling, though? Couldn't you tell that it is really, really hot or cold?

i will say I like our measuring systems better (quarts, gallons and such) but when it comes to temps and distance, I think Metric's got it right.


and yes TO HELL WITH SUMMER!

Well if we use that argument, what's the use in measuring temperature at all

i know! i mean, i gave fair warning. it's not too much to ask for people to not do that. the west coast hadn't even seen it yet, so it's not like it was a long time after.

Wish I could remember that chick's name...! Do you mean the one with the dreads that was in the final three? Or am I hallucinating....
he was just so....i hated his song trees. it was emo. to this day, if i get going at a restaurant about that song, i grab a knife and pretend to slit my wrists while singing it. yes, at a restaurant

i know! oooh and i forgot about her!! she was hot. i remember saying i'd go gay for her but i was thinking of the blonde girl. suzy!! that was her name. i forget the dread girl's name. it was weird.
