This science youtube channel did a few videos on thermometers, and here’s one.  It’s interesting, mostly useless information, but interesting none the less.

That’s really funny.

Well, Kelvin starts at absolute zero.  Celsius is based on the freezing/boiling point of water.  And Fahrenheit is based on the not-dead scale.  But, it’s a subjective American (esp. Californian & Texan?) not-dead scale; Northern people tend to melt at 100F and 0F is more like ‘somewhat cool’.

Just sayin’.  wink
