Scales

This is because Fahrenheit is based on a brine scale and the human body. The scale is basically how cold does it have to be to freeze saltwater (zero Fahrenheit) to what temperature is the human body (100-ish Fahrenheit, although now we know that’s not exactly accurate). Fahrenheit was designed around humans.Celsius and Kelvin are designed around the natural world.Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.So.Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humansCelsius: what temperatures affect waterKelvin: what temperatures affect atoms

Why didn’t my science teachers ever see fit to toss off this little fact?

Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.

Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.

So.
Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humans
Celsius: what temperatures affect water
Kelvin: what temperatures affect atoms

God damnit Tumblr, stop taking the bait. I’m proud to be a 4Channer, a /g/entooman. You hear that? /g/. The technology board. And I’ve had plenty of experience with /b/-tards. All of 4chan knows the random board is shit.

They want what they want. They’ll feed off your self-esteem, your stoic pride, your victim mentality. Why? Who knows. They’re fucktards. But you can’t stop them. Moderators of 4chan hardly go on /b/.

Stop giving them these enormous reactions. I disagree with their point of view entirely, but I can see it. All they need to do is post a couple gore pics, some nudity, cross boundaries, say uncalled for things, and you all flip over like its the freaking inevitable heat-death of the universe. They find it entertaining.

So what should you do? You shrug it off. You realize that absolutely nothing they say has any weight, any truth in your life. Water off a duck’s back. Stop acting like you’ve never seen porn before. Just casually report and move on, their IP addresses will be banned from Tumblr and /b/tards will lose interest and go raid club penguin again or something.

And stop calling 4chan so horrible because of /b/. If you want to form an actual opinion like the mature folks you claim to be, visit

4chan.org/a/catalog - the anime board

4chan.org/cgl/catalog - the cosplay board

4chan.org/v/catalog - the video games board

4chan.org/g/catalog - the technology board

4chan.org/ic/catalog - the artwork & critique board

4chan.org/s4s/catalog - “Shit 4chan says”, the board where all the good parts of /b/ went.

Repost if you are against the inconsiderate and abusive /b/ raiding, not the entirety of 4Chan, a reputable not-for-profit imageboard.
