piobbuR who still prefers Kelvin (pereferably expressed with hexadecimal digits).

PS. There is actually a fourth scale (with some but fortunately very limited use), the Rankine svcale . It's like Kelvin in the sense that absolute zero==0, but unlike Kelvin it's based on Fahrenheit., Thus 0C==273.15K==32F==491.67. FACEPALM!!!! DS

PPS. Actually there are even more scales. Wikipedia lists 4 additional temperature scales (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scale_of_temperature) DS.

I have my own scale too:

"Shit! It's freezing, I need my winter coat, gloves, scarf and 3 layers" - Beast of the East cold wave. Think Iceland weather.
"It's cold. I've got my winter coat on" - Most of the year in the UK
"It's getting warm, I'll just wear my hoodie" - 2 months of the year in the UK. Type of weather most Mediterranean countries have when it's cold for them.
"It's really nice now. Go out in t-shirts and shorts" - 2 weeks of the year in the UK. When the Mediterranean is in its happy season.
"I'm dying here!" - 1 week heat wave in the UK. Think India most of the year.

Don't get me started on °C/°F vs K, US and UK gallon vs litre, mile / nautical mile / Scandinavian mile vs km, PSI / mmHg vs bar, roentgen / rad / rem /... vs Sv and so on. That's why we still have to carry a calculator (but I don't mind, I love calculators).

So dangerous, so confusing. It reminds me of this satellite lost because two collaborative teams were using different units. Or that one time I took off with the only plane still equipped with an air speed indicator in mph instead of kn without noticing it. Someone was very unhappy about it. ;)

"Shit! It's freezing, I need my winter coat, gloves, scarf and 3 layers" - Beast of the East cold wave. Think Kansas in mid-January.
"It's cold. I've got my winter coat on" - Think Kansas for everything else between November to the first half of March
"It's getting warm, I'll just wear my hoodie" - Think Kansas in October or the last half of March through the first half of May. (Hope it's a water-proof hoodie.)
"It's really nice now. Go out in t-shirts and shorts" - Think Kansas in the last half of September and the last half of May
"I'm dying here!" - The rest of the year in Kansas
Fixed that for you. ;)

"It's really nice now. Go out in t-shirts and shorts" - Think Brisbane all year long!! :)

pibbuR who (AFAHK) never broke a mirror, but (mostly unintentionally) several pieces of small(occasionally large) non-furry items of other (more or less) fragile hardware, sometimes including collateral damage to tissues.

A very familiar problem:

pibbuR who just 2 hours ago searched his storage areas for a specific type of USB cable (or a compatible adapter), but couldn't find any. Note to himself: remember to tidy up said storage areas before the wife notices.

No, but you're correct, the picture was taken in the metro. It's taking place all over an imaginary city, you play the role of a structural engineer who must assess the infrastructure of several facilities.
