How cold is 20℃
To get F from C:
Multiply by 9, then divide by 5, then add 32

To get C from F:
Deduct 32, then multiply by 5, then divide by 9

Or get this: Convert for Windows - joshmadison.com

I've been using it for about 16 years now. The latest version is feature rich and converts stuff I have no clue even existed.

But it will not convert hociR to xatneP.

Not even with bacon and cheese or possum stew.

Oh, and doesn't your phone have a convert app?

My featureless flip phone does.

I just tried, and you're right!

Although if you try to google "hocir bacon cheese possum stew" that will almost get you there!

OK after 2 hours of reading I am now up to date!!! WOO HOO!!
Points of interest:
Beer sucks. Hate even the fruity micro brews!
Winter sucks but Winter Olympics still cool!
Bacon and cheese still a winner!
Yes you can snowboard in the south! It's called dry boarding and many of the world class train on it!
Favorite drink is Mountain Dew! My rule is I can get plenty stupid without any chemical help!!
As for the new sports are just to pad out the U.S. medal count, it's more the X-Games becoming so popular that the IOC has to let them in!!
What I like about the Winter Games now is the culture has changed! The competitors are friendly to each other and often good friends!! (I know Kinda reduntant) This is a far cry from the cold war era!! Yeah!!
Last thought, what if everyone was declaring no K-3 and secretly buying them anyway! supplies are down!!

oh and I forgot, if you hate and fear Google, use startpage.com. It is supposed to be secure(we'll see about that)

---------- Post added 02-10-14 at 12:05 PM ----------

And one more thing, the poor south is going to get shellacked again!! Stay safe dansamy!!

That's 2 hours you'll never get back

And you forgot about the scotch! What's more important than scotch? With a dash of good water? Other than not buying a K-3, of course. That goes without saying. Except it didn't. But you know what I mean, at least if you're Google.

duckduckgo.com is the goto search engine if privacy is a concern they don't store your searches or track you.

I don't have the time to read all these pages but I think you should be able to tell has lack of neon color options been cited as a reason why we aren't buying this wonderful camera?

Yup, but I'm sure somebody does... But at the very least they don't lock you up in a "search bubble" like the big ones do. E.g. Google learns what you usually search for and will rank similar his higher than other hits. Too bad if you don't want most of the web filtered out (or at least downranked into oblivion).

Which is why, well, you know.

It says right next to the search window, "Enhanced by Google".

I fear that hociR has something to do with this!

Yes I see that now!! Google is evil on a whole new level!! Makes Hocir look like Mother Theresa!! Nothing gives me a warm fuzzy like a corporate entity having selective moral outrage! Oops, did I say that? No what I was really trying to say was the Olympics would even be better with bacon for supper! Yeah that's it!!

Watch out for "them".

And the black helicopters.

And the black K3.

Me?

I'll take some Jack Daniels, single barrel, straight up. Bacon and cheese on a Ritz cracker. No possum stew, thank you.
