Proof once again that the metric system is messed up!
That's why I prefer the Rankine scale.

That makes our 90 F equal 549.67 R.
I'll stick with F, I hate heat.

Agreed. Anything above 18-20į (64-68 F) is too hot.

I havenít seen Asterix since, hmm, say 1961 or 62.
French you say? I always read him in English.
Perhaps the French printed them in English too (although that seems unlikely, seeing as how they think everyone should speak French)
Asterix books have been published in many languages, although Iíll warrant the jokes are different in each.

Asterix around the World - the many Languages of Asterix

Day before yesterday we hit a record high for the day of 90 F (32 C)
This morning it's 33 F (.555 C)
.555 C?? Proof once again that the metric system is messed up!
Although the official high yesterday was something like 68f, I saw 71 on the outside temp display on my Ram pickup.

What?
It would be more fun to take up a collection and pay him to rake them along.

I first heard of them from my high school French teacher. He was named, surname, after a place in Germany, but as good Australian boys we pronounced his first name phonetically to be Jack-wess.
Jacques?

Indeed. Jacques is a very popular name amongst people of French descent in South Africa. (And elsewhere) Or Francois, also very popular.
