When it gets below 50°F, I convert the temperature to Kelvin. 271°K just sounds much warmer than 29°F, and even warmer yet than -2°C. It also confuses hell out of most folks since only scientists and such use the Kelvin scale. Tell the average Joe it's 275° on a nice spring day and he'll think you're what our UK friends would call barmy.
