Dave MacKenzie BS: Celsius -Fahrenheit (51* d) RE: BS: Celius -Fahrenheit 05 Apr 14

The name got changed from Centigrade because Fahrenheit was based on a 100 degrees, even if nobody can remember what they were supposed to be, and it was realized that water only boils at 100 degrees at sea level. I still don't see the attraction of decimal arithmetic; Pre metric we counted in everything but tens, and it was much easier shopping for dozens when everuthing was in pence and shillings.
