Holy Centigrade, Batman

I was sitting in a Greek pub here in Ontario, Canada--about a mile and a half from my lodgings and chomping on a gyro--when the news said it was going to be 15 below zero.  "15 below," says I!  That's cold!

Then I remembered that only we scientifically backward Americans still use Fahrenheit.  That's only about 7 degrees.  That's no worse than Indiana.

It was a fine walk home.

I always impress myself when I tell Bolivians that many days this month in my home state it "never gets above zero".

I think around -40 degrees the temperatures merge.
